    Pros

    Friendly office management, great dresses and coats, trendy clothing at affordable price.

    Cons

    I had no cons during the time I worked at Deb. Loved senior management!

    Advice to Management

    It has been 16 years since I worked for the company. At the time the Senior officers were outstanding and treated me with the most respect. It is sad to hear all of this bad pr from employees on this site. Deb at the time I worked for them was a family oriented atmosphere. They cared about their people. Maybe they need to look back at what the previous management was doing right.

    I worked at Deb Shops full-time (More than a year)

    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.
