Assistant Manager (Former Employee)
Austin, TX

I worked at Talbots

ProsExcellent group of very dedicated employees in most cases
family like attmosphere
great discount
competitive wages
great heritage of company brand name

Consalot of political favorings like many companies, play a lot of favorites
company in a very unstable time right now, lots of layoffs,shaky from corporate
constant changes of schedule, hard to balance with personal life
unclear directions coming down from top, very unrealistic for resources given
constant change of expectations of jobs

Advice to Senior ManagementHave a very good staff for the most part, show more apprecitation of that in a sincere way.
Tone of reviews and corrective actions given to people often very harsh and done publicly, while others do the same activities with little said. More advace planning needed to make directions happen in a smooth way, be more realistic in demands given. Offer better incentives to those who do perform.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Some much potential, but no leadership, no focus, Heads of business do not know what the customer wants.
