I worked at The Children's Place full-time for 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.

    Pros

    Great Sales Associates
    If you enjoy customer interaction this will be a great job for you
    Discount insensitives are good

    Cons

    The pay does not equal the amount of work you put in, they will work you until you want to quit for as little pay as they can get. It is hard to work for this company if you have a family as the hours are crazy and you will definitely be pulling some overnights. Very little upward mobility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise management to be more aware of their employees moral and overall health. While this is a discount retailer sometimes you need to focus more on the customers than the money as in the long term you will gain more income.
