Assistant Store Manager

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

ProsThe discount is very generous and can be used in both the factory outlet division and the retail stores.

ConsTalbots leaders state associates are the most important asset however, invest absolutely nothing time or money in developing associates.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe company was not doing well for many years, due to mismanagement at the senior level. However, it appears those on the senior level continue to well and those actually working in the trenches (at the store locations) have gone without raises for 2 years. It also appears on the division level RVP does not think highly of those working in the store locations. Compensation is poor, remember you get what you pay for.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
