    I have been working at The Children's Place full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company prefers to promote from within. Flexible scheduling for part time associates to allow for other employment if desired.

    Cons

    Constant updates to floorset would be my only con. Payroll is not always generous however this is the case in retail in general.

    Pros

    Working at The Children's Place has been a great experience. Over the last 4 years that I've worked here, I have learned so much about running a business and developing great leaders. I have had many personal growth opportunities as well. Most recently I have been working at HQ, covering a role while someone was on an LOA. This opportunity allowed me to learn a totally new and different side to our business. Having worked in the field for over 15 years, what I've learned at HQ will help me do my job better. District and regional managers are very open to new ideas. They also realize and respect that just because something works in one store, it doesn't work in them all.

    Cons

    There are many changing priorities, most of which come down with very little notice. Leaders that are not flexible and willing to change plans to meet the new priorities will not do well here.

    Advice to Management

    Many of the changes that are made are due to a reaction to the business. If field leaders had a better understanding of the why behind the change, then it would be easier to get buy in from more people.

    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.

    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.
