    I worked at Talbots full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Nice discount. Great benefit time, when you could take it. I used to love the clothes.

    Cons

    Definitely not family friendly. Unreasonable hours of operation. Quality of clothing has deteriorated.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees. When you say you will do something do it. Get back to "it's a classic", because its the truth. And there is nothing wrong with it.

    I have been working at Talbots full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Staff was great to work with as well as store manager. Learned tons of stuff and loved my job in the beginning. Bonuses every month when making store goals. Pay was also good

    Cons

    After a year of being there they decided to only give bonuses when you made your month as well as stayed within your sph which was ridiculous with the amount of work expected. Would receive shipment 3 days before a floorset was due plus they wanted markdowns done with limited payroll. After 2 yrs of being employed received no raise. They expect you to be bc but not sale during those times but also make your sales goal for the week.

    Advice to Management

    DM and REGIONAL managers need to understand that there's only so much you can accomplish in one day. Motivation is the key to success and not condescending emails on how bad the stores are doing. Rotating weekends would also be nice and not just having one wkend off a month
