I have been working at The Children's Place part-time for more than a year

Pros

30% Discount, other associates are nice to work with, nice clothing, good prices when on sale

Cons

Management team is lazy, rude, very unprofessional, store manager talks about associates in an inappropriate manor- making fun of them when a mannequin fell of an associate and how the associate walks, store leads keep notebooks of anything you say they can twist around and tell there store manager, you would have to set a floor set according to notes then your store manager would come in and tear it all down and re do it because she did not like it. they pay worthless people money to not do there jobs while associates looking to get promoted and work hard get zero recognition. just a horrible experience all the way through.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

give recognition to your associates, visit stores more often undercover to see how the store is operated not all the time but once a year as in upper management. Give the people who are willing to work for you the promotions and money they deserve. make the business positive with positive people working for it not these horrible people.

    I have been working at The Children's Place part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Discounts and Manager was open and understanding to schedules. Most coworkers are nice and fun to work with.

    Cons

    Lots of ego and attitude runs this store. No hours for a month(s). No official break room, just a tiny table where other workers can bump into you. Managers LOVE to talk. "No cell phones on the floor" is a reasonable request but seems unfair when mgmt themselves can't follow the rules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out a way all staff can at least have one shift a week even when it's slow. Would love to see some recognition and have something to look forward to coming into work for.
