    Exceptional work experience!

    District Manager (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsTalbots has moved forward through a tough retail environment over the last 2 years thanks to an amazing executive leadership team, a focus on the customer, delivering quality, an inspired work force and making smart decisions. I feel incredibly lucky to have been a part of the process as a District Manager and to be empowered and enabled to lead my team in a way that balances celebration and inspiration with accountability. I'm encouraged to have a work/life balance and to make decisions based on my experience and knowledge. I am trusted to do what I do best... drive results through my phenomenal team. There are paths for advancement for those who are interested and we all are challenged to always be improving... for ourselves, for the customer, for the brand.

    ConsBecause Talbots is a fleet of several hundred stores and a very expansive online/direct business... decisions and changes can take what seems to be a long time. It can be positive that decisions aren't rushed or made before careful consideration but for those of us who are passionate and results driven, the process can seem slow.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo the upper managment... continue your commitment to transparency, open communication and collaboration with the field leaders.The store teams can see a difference and it is motivating them to own their business and the customer experience. Keep listening to the customer as she is loyal and passionate but has very high expectations of us.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ProsThe company has great leadership from the CEO down the ranks. Great values as a company that takes great care of the employee as well as the customer.

    ConsGet an awesome discount...spend a great deal on clothes! I love fashion so there's really no cons!

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think we're on the right track as a brand, Management is always seeking feedback from the field which will only make our brand the brand of choice!

    Mangers get payed too much money and are robbing Talbots Blind

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsGreat discount.. Love the customers

    ConsI figured the Store Manager was basically embezzling $8,000 to $10,000 a year of hourly time, vacation time, and sick-personal time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCEO, CFO, Human Resources, Payroll you need to have Store Managers clocking in and out. They are the very ones why I no longer have a job. When people are stealing from the top. They cut the very people who are doing all the work.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
