    I worked at Talbots part-time (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...

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
