Many retailers like Talbots, Inc. find that the iCIMS Talent Platform is tailored to the retail industry’s Human Resources needs, providing multiple hiring types, vast reporting and analytic options, and software configurability.

Talbots, Inc. started out in 1947 as a single-standing store in Hingham, MA, and has grown to 580 stores in 47 states, including the District of Columbia and Canada. To further support its growth, the leading multi-channel retailer of women’s apparel, shoes, and accessories, will use iCIMS’ Applicant Tracking and Onboarding Solution.
