    I worked at The Children's Place

    Pros

    Very family friendly enviroment. I was hired as management. I loved the job, my coworkers and clientele.

    Cons

    The only con is having to work retail hours which can't be avoided. Also the holiday season will run you ragged but that is to be expected.

    I have been working at The Children's Place full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    It allows you to progress. I was hired as a sales associate march of 2014, became a sales lead july of 2014, and now october 2014 I became an assistant store manager and im only 18. This company has allowed me to really show my skills and how I am able to contribute to the business im very lucky and fortunate to be in the position that I am.

    Cons

    Many sales associates leave early dont like the job nor hours they recieve but than again its only a part time job for sales associates.

    I worked at The Children's Place as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great internship program, very organized, good exposure to all departments. Interns get to participate in summer Fridays and have the opportunity to work together on a project that is presented to the CEO and Senior Leadership Team

    Cons

    No cons in the internship program!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire interns for the fall and spring as well!

    I have been working at The Children's Place full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The store manager reviews on glass door are embarrassing. You can get what you want from this company... You just have to be driven and ambitious. The reviews of people,that can critic a successful business in a bad economy, are delusional.
    Wake up people. Reviews are for the skeptics. If you go through life being skeptical you're going to remain lost in the wall paper.

    Cons

    The company is too safe. They keep producing the same thing year after year. There is nothing groundbreaking about this company. When I tell people where I work...they're clueless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take risk. Offer better incentive. Create a concrete succession plan. Listen. Validate. Recognize. Prevent me from humoring myself with glass door.

    Very poltical home office environment. Became all about the dollar. Feel that CEO was very disconnected from the field. Making decisions without transparency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Very important to be honest with your teams.

    I have been working at The Children's Place part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    There's always room to grow with this company. I was hired in for holiday help and I was promoted to Store Lead a couple months later.

    Cons

    It's retail so the pay isn't as good as I would like.

    Pros

    Management is open and honest

    Cons

    so little time to complete all tasks needed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more hours needed to train the right people for their jobs, we stress the right person for the right place at the right time but if they don't walk into the store as that person....we can't invest in them right away without sacrificing time away from our customers
