    I worked at Talbots full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Clothes are good quality and the customers are very loyal. Pay scale is higer than normal retail.

    Cons

    Do not promote from within the company anymore. They let a lot of qualified people go. They are going down and don't seem to be able to fix the issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember how it started with the original Talbots. Care about the staff. Hire from within and stop bringing in people who do not care about the brand. That's what Talbots is.
