    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at The Children's Place (Jersey City, NJ) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through LinkedIn and heard from someone in HR about a week later. I went in for the interview where I met with three people in the company. It was about a 2 hour process. I felt as though it went well and was told that I would hear one way or the other within 2 weeks. I never heard from them and when I reached out to one of the HR reps, I never heard back from him. I felt this was very unprofessional. Even if you aren't going to be receiving an offer, it's nice to know that, not just be ignored. If you don't hear back within 2 weeks, you didn't get the job. Don't try to reach out to them, they won't respond.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at The Children's Place (Secaucus, NJ) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted by Talent Acquisition. Started with a phone interview, contacted the same day to schedule an in person interview with the HR Director, and Hiring Manager. Interview Questions were basic behavioral/resume questions. Contacted the following week to meet with a few of the VP's and upper management. Questions were a little more in depth, but overall the process was enjoyable and I would definitely recommend applying for a position with The Children's Place if your looking for a good environment with great people who want you to learn the business.

    Interview Questions

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Brooklyn, NY
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at The Children's Place (Brooklyn, NY) in September 2013.

    Interview

    I went in thinking it was a one on one interview and it was a group interview without warning. The other candidates stole each other's answers it was very hard to stand out. Their were candidates that were over qualified and it made it harder for the younger less experienced to get a word in. And the interviewer played favorites not even being fair at all it was ridiculous
