Former Employee - Assistant Manager in Champaign, IL

I worked at Talbots full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

It's a slow paced environment most days but the average dollar sale is much higher at this retailer

Cons

It was difficult to break into total store management so I left for another retailer and immediately made $10,000 more in my salary and I've been extremely happy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I wish I had been considered for the position because I would still be there today. The hours were great at our location and I loved the clientele. I was sad to hear that 2 years after my departure they ended up closing 2 of the 3 doors and went to the original 3,000 sq feet. That place was a beast at it's peak!

    I have been working at Talbots part-time (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.
