I worked at Talbots part-time (More than 3 years)
Talbots was a great part-time job, especially for my first serious employment. They asked for the best from you. They were committed to brand excellence and maintaining a classic tradition while moving forward with the times (visually).
The management team was excellent; the GM was considerate and listened to what we needed as employees but never promised what she couldn't deliver. She was an excellent boss to work for and gave me a wonderful structure for what to look for in a leader.
The only cons would be that all the employees are only part-time. There aren't any full-time positions open until you get to corporate headquarters-type positions. I didn't anticipate any kind of growth while working there.
Any other cons were the kind that come from working part-time retail.
Advice to Management
Listen to what your employees say. Understand that your management team does so much for you in the day-to-day and they can only do so much unless you show them you really appreciate them.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Talbots (Jacksonville, FL) in February 2017.
I met with the Store Manager of one location and we had a very basic interview, she told me about the company and how her store ran as well as the structure. I met with the Store Manager of the store I ended up in a few days later. We talked about the clientele base and her store. Overall a wonderful experience.
