    Advice to Management

    YOU ARE OUT OF TOUCH! Get your butts into a real store and see how it really works. I want to see you "greet every customer" and "hand out mesh bags" while you are resetting the entire store, doing enormous mark downs and visual changes, etc. GOOD LUCK!

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good coworkers, nice discount, good product, comfortable atmosphere, relaxed, easy job, good benefits

    Cons

    There is no support of staff by corporate. Stores do not receive enough payroll hours to keep up with loss prevention. Too much is focused on annoying the customer rather than actually assisting them. Corporate also attempts to have the stores compete rather than work together, which makes little sense because everyone is really on the same team. The Children's Place also doesn't seem to understand the need for equal opportunity clothing.

    Advice to Management

    Support your staff, give them payroll hours. No one wants to work for a company which does not give them the chance to work, after all that's why they applied. You also shouldn't try to make stores so competitive but rather you should have stores compete with other children's clothing stores. Also, change the color palate from hot pink and glitter to more mature colors and we won't start losing customers at age 10.
    You should also provide girls and boys with the same clothing opportunities. Why are there no superhero shirts directed at young girls?
