    I have been working at Talbots full-time

    Pros

    50-60% OFF DISCOUNT
    Credit contests that generate "style dollars" to buy merchandise.

    Cons

    Company is struggling to recover from horrible financial loss. The expectations set by the company for sales and credit are anything but realistic. When the company has incentive contests the winnings are for the store managers or DM. Not the employees. Company also forces store employees to set up shopping appointments with customers. No raises in YEARS.

    Advice to Management

    Stop forcing employees to do shopping parties and appointments. I would also like to see the employees get raises. Stop wasting money on cookies and I pads and give back to the employees.
