Pros

My manager at Talbots was by far the best manager I have ever had! I worked with an amazing team Great Benefits Easy work atmosphere

Cons

Talbots is in the middle of big changes, they were recently bought by Sycamore and could be sold again soon, once the company has been built back up. My shift was a 12 hours shift, although most are not. I work 3 days one week and 4 days the next, then repeat. This is great if you are single or have older children, but can be hard if you have a young family

Advice to Management

Obviously there is always room for improvement, but over all I am very happy with my direct Management. They do need to work on hiring more people, because the work load for some (not me) is getting to be to heavy after all of the layoffs.

    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 Management

    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!
