    Friend gets £5.05. I think it just depends on your area or/and experience.

    I've worked for Debenhams for 2 years.

    Christmas Temporary staff get paid a higher rate (incentive for working there for over the xmas period of time) I started off as one of these and got paid £5.04 despite only being 16

    Then, they kept me on as a permanent member of staff, from January onwards and put my wage down to £3.89 (booo!)

    When i turned 17 and had worked there a year i was training new members of staff and i got a payrise to £5.05 (normal rate for 18 year olds).

    So yeah....that's kind of a bit confusing, but hope it helps. Quite a lot of under 18s are paid about the £3.89- £4.20 mark but it does go up to £5.05 when hitting 18.

    Other things that influence pay are the store that you work in (City/Out of town stores get paid better wages)

    Haha...v long post; i promise that i've got a life outside of Debenhams :rolleyes:

    I am starting there next week as a Sales Assistant, £5.50. However, I think I may be getting a little more because of my experience.
