    I have been working at Talbots full-time

    Pros

    50-60% OFF DISCOUNT
    Credit contests that generate "style dollars" to buy merchandise.

    Cons

    Company is struggling to recover from horrible financial loss. The expectations set by the company for sales and credit are anything but realistic. When the company has incentive contests the winnings are for the store managers or DM. Not the employees. Company also forces store employees to set up shopping appointments with customers. No raises in YEARS.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop forcing employees to do shopping parties and appointments. I would also like to see the employees get raises. Stop wasting money on cookies and I pads and give back to the employees.

    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!
