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

    Pros

    I have worked for a lot of vertical retail companies and they all have a number of challenges but TCP exceeded all my expectations in terms of the number of challenges I encountered.

    They did not put a clause in my contract that I would l have to stay a year otherwise I would have to play my relocation back

    Cons

    The managements has no vision on how to grow the business unless you consider that fact that they want to reduce the costing to improve margins or share buyback to improve EPS year over year.

    When you attend a quarterly review and all the talk is about reducing the quality of the merchandise to reduce the first cost price its very concerning. If you are reducing costs with costs are going in the entire market they you are going against the tide. You can move every program to Africa to get your costing done......can you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LIsten to all the call outs that were made in the culture survey and you ever going to release the results to the company.
    SAP retail....what company in North America is investing on a software program for retail that no one in the industry uses.

    Pros

    -Easy to balance school with work
    -Fast-paced
    -Fun environment(customer wise)
    -Was OKAY for a part time job and going to school, but still very poor store.

    Cons

    -Very poor management
    -No hours
    -No room for growth
    -Disorganized
    -On-Call shifts, you would HAVE to stay 2 hours after your shift or come in two hours early if they said so.They also had the opportunity to call you in on your days off and you couldn't say no.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try treating your employees with some respect and maybe you will get some back.
