    Love the people at the store but I have to question decisions by management. Have they ever worked the floor?

    Pros

    Proud to be selling classic Talbot's styling again. Customers are great to work with.

    Cons

    Inconsistent scheduling; poor pay. The sales associates are the face of Talbots. It is up to us to promote the brand, and the great customer service - all while stocking the store. It can be difficult to provide the superior customer service expected of us while stocking the store at the same time. Allowing a few extra hours while store is closed redo the floor would be money well-spent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are taking huge discounts - all the time. If you took 1% of the sales price offered it as a bonus to your sales associates, the return would be huge. Show the sales associates you recognize the hard work they do and that you appreciate the effort they put into making Talbots the store it was for so many years,
