I worked at Talbots part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

above average salary and coworker are okay discounts were great

Cons

no hours, terrible management. Got to play "the kiss butt" game to get hours. No loyalty from upper management. No room to grow especially you are a minority. Just a "white only" club. Customers are rude. Want you to buy the clothes; clothes quality was not up to par.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do a better job at managing, training, and nicer. Show appreciation to the employees who bust their butts everyday.
