    I have been working at Talbots part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Everyone from sales staff, management, to senior executives to be extremely friendly and great to work with. Merchandise discount is very good. Great flexibility with scheduling.

    Cons

    The loss of medical benefits and inconsistent hours has been very frustrating. Promotions are too frequent. Should give more time to sell goods at full price. Pay scale is not great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like to see you go back to hiring a sales staff that is full time and bring back real benefits for medical and financial benefits.
