I worked at Talbots full-time for 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!
