    I worked at Talbots part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good discounts on clothing. fun coworkers and some of the managers are super nice. Reset nights are fun with all the cure there.

    Cons

    Schedules can change at a moments notice and the mgr is not good at working with a school schedule or exam schedule. They pay low as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You will have happier employees and lower turnover if you don't push so hard and you work with student schedules. School is more important than a low paying retail job.

    I have been working at Talbots full-time

    Pros

    The company/ upper managerment honestly listens to the feeback from their stores. They often promote from the inside and I have always felt appreciated as an employee. In addition, they have provided associates with bonuses this year. Talbots also cares so much about their customers and we work diligently from a store and corporate level to always do what is right for the customer. I have seen this company improve greatly within the past year. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens in the next year as well! The discount is phenomenal, too!

    Cons

    There needs to be a better system to anonymously report HR issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you have been doing. I feel valued as an employee with Talbots & I feel adequately compensated for my work. Thanks for listening to your employees. I look forward to a long career with this brand.
