If you are looking for a company that is task driven vs sales driven, this is the company to work for.

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

Pros

Resources and tools to help drive business were accessible.

Cons

Hours are minimal for the amount of tasks that are expected daily. As we know retail can be a very challenging job when it comes to hours allocation to the stores tasks. TCP never supported the store to complete floorsets, markdowns, pos sale set up, and shipment processing. Leaving very little focus or even actual associates to provide any kind of customer experience.
Assortment of clothing each season do not change much. Repeat customers would get frustrated seeing the same items over and over again.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look at the hours given to stores. Visit store unannounced to see the real picture. So much payroll goes into store visits from RM and above when in reality all stores should be visit ready at all times. Invest in the stores so that customer service truly can be a focus over the task.
A training program for management candidates is desperately needed. Get all management to be on same page during the on boarding process.

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

    Pros

    Great place to start if you have no experience in retail.

    Cons

    You will not get a raise because the company is very cheap. You get a lot of corporate visits. Management team is constantly changing. They are always hiring new people and firing the best employees for the dumbest reasons. You will NOT get any hours and everything is based off of favoritism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop looking for all the negatives and focus on the positives and look for better alternatives to improve customer satisfaction! Also, the management team needs to learn how to communicate with their employees.
