    Pros

    Debs was a great company to work for. They treated employees very well and corporate was always respectful and helpful which is not always the case.

    Cons

    Debs going out of business was a hard blow to my entire team. Our DM had a great handle on his stores and it was a shame that other regions were hit so hard.

    Advice to Management

    I really do not have anything to put in here at all. The company was great to work for.
