Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee) – Leesburg, VA – March 27, 2018
Talbots is a good Retail company, one of the better retail companies. However after five years of never having a Holiday off and working weekends is very trying. I am of an age in which many of my family members are passing away. I don't have a chance to spend time with them. My Father passed and I was not able to spend any Holidays with him...looking for a job that I can have time for family and friends.
No quick turnover, get to know our Customers
No Holidays off, block out time for vacation, use or loose...I loose vacation time every year.

Talbots is driven by their commitment to provide classic contemporary wardrobe items for customers. They have extremely loyal customers who are willing to pay more for the quality of clothing that Talbots offers. Their mission is well known by everyone who works there. They offer incentives for the sales team to help stores reach their sales goals. Staff are expected to dress neatly in a casual business style and to be professional in all their dealings with customers and other team members. They encourage camaraderie among sales team members and a sense of fun.
Flexible work hours
Retail has a large turnover rate so staffing is sometimes an issue

This is for sure not the same company!! As to when I stared the company used to care about us.Raises every year on how we preformed after it got sold forget about raises. health insurance is terrible goes up every year and no raises if you are just looking for a job just to help out in your household great you have one. But to make it on your own not going to happen the pay is very low for the amount of work we do especially for the ones that actually work.
2/15 min breaks and 30 min lunch not paid just Fri extra 15 mins paid
Client Specialist (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 16, 2018
The company has been around for a long time, but working there it feels like they want to reach the next generation of clients but not willing to take chances that could lose old clients. The company is for the company, and while client service is the most important part of working there, it often feels that no matter what you do as an employee, there is no benefit to to excell. Raises don’t seem to be part of their culture if you’re not in a management position.
Good health care options (you pay in), 401 available
Under staffed and over managed, no recognition financially of a job well done
