Former Employee - Merchandising in Hingham, MA
Former Employee - Merchandising in Hingham, MA

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

Pros

Location, Coworkers, onsite cafeteria, friendly front desk / reception staff, support staff (office services, etc), free parking, proximity to commuter boats

Cons

Management (all levels) is so concerned with their own stature and filling their pockets. They don't seem to care who they step on to get up the ladder and fill that wallet. Hiring and keeping "entitled" staff who fit the physical mold but don't have the ability to pull their weight has been an issue for years. Very sad, because this is a company that used to be the place people wanted to work at... now it's the place people can't wait to leave.

Disapproval of the CEO harkens back to TS. That's where it all went downhill.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you would treat others as you want to be treated, you'd be a lot better off.

    I have been working at Talbots part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Catered to women. Mostly older women

    Cons

    It's only a women store. Nothing for men. It's a downer working there as a guy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The workers are as important as the customers. If the workers are not happy, then they won't work to there best of there ability. Promotion and raises wouldn't hurt too bad either

    Pros

    Kind people who really care about all of their fellow coworkers. Nice clothes and lots of good sales

    Cons

    Pay and perks could be much better. Other than that the job was pretty good, I have to say. Sometimes hectic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your own a lot more.
