I worked at Talbots part-time for less than a year

Pros

Most of the customers are Lovely and you'd enjoy helping them.

Cons

REALLY POOR Management in place...
Management is not supervised by headquarter or regional offices

There's NO, I mean NONE respect for you as far as management is concerned...

The ONLY thing that matters is selling merchandise ...

You are treated like slave in there and believe me you'd regret working there and you would quit if you have other choices --> so did I

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more respectful and understanding of employees, people can't do whatever you want or not...

    I worked at Talbots part-time for 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.

    Pros

    Nothing pro about this store.

    Managers,including store managers at the madison store have horrible class. Talbots needs to recruit managers that are educated.

    Go back to school.
