    I have been working at Talbots part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This location is a short commute for me. I love to sell and enjoy most of the customers and the part-time staff.

    Cons

    No room for advancement, no reward system, extremely physical labor, mind numbing duties. Management structure ensures no creativity and product is sometimes hard to sell. Hourly rate of pay creates more below poverty level jobs. Management does not care at all about employee turn over.

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

    Pros

    Good pay and employee discount, good learning experience although training is rushed, loved my coworkers, definitely a flexible work schedule and the program they use for scheduling is good.

    Cons

    The hours are not reliable, management hires people on constantly and that results in pay checks that you can't live on. Quality of product is definitely getting worse while product price is increasing! They don't hire from within and don't give raises to sales associates.

    Advice to Management

    don't over hire and realize people don't just work here for the employee discount (they actually have to make a living).
