Extremely disorganized; poor communication; poor calendar scheduling

P/T Assistant Manager (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Talbots part-time for more than 3 years

ProsThey give employees a great discount on clothes

ConsThere is very poor communication from the top on down. Work schedules change constantly, and store mgmt doesn't want to hear you're not available to come in if you weren't scheduled that day. There is too much focus on making customers open Talbots charge cards, running monthly "shopping parties" to entice customers to buy more than they want. Lack of respect for employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to communicate with your employees; stop forcing associates to push charge cards and product on customers that they don't want to buy.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
