One of the worst companies I have ever worked for

I worked at The Children's Place full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

I find it difficult to name a pro. Micro-Management down to the thread selection on the garment. Merchandisers have little to no say in process or in the final collection. The amount of double-triple-quadruple work is unbelievable. CEO is a horrific person with zero regard to the staff, this is clear in the high turnover and the revolving door of executives that have either left quickly or were fired.

Cons

Cons – Everything down to the negative attitude of everyone and disregard of personal time. Zero work/life balance; 80+ hour work week expectations. Always worked weekends and as late as 2am in order to meet unrealistic expectations. Most people were very unhappy with work environment and management.

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

    Pros

    Employee Discount 30%, Good quality cute clothes, The Children and customers.

    Cons

    Not enough hours, frequent company policy changes, on call shifts, work every weekend and evenings, heavy workload within four hour shift, left on floor alone often, too many unrealistic goals, not enough employee associate recognition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make more realistic goals, give customers more notice in advance before changing policies, and hire managers who are equipped to do their job well, and recognize sale associates for the hard work we do as well even if it's for four hours.
