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?

    Pros

    The management team that started the distribution center in Alabama was the BEST you could ask for. They cared about the associates, there were ample opportunities for advancement and the leadership couldn't be surpassed by anyone. That didn't last long!

    Cons

    The entire management team was replaced and not for the better. Upper management doesn't care about the associates or how hard they work. You would think that there would be some appreciation for the fact that you are working in miserable heat but they only seem to care about the associates that don't work and complain all the time. There is little to no training for new hires. They are thrown into an area for 5 minutes and hope that some info sinks in before they are moved on to another task. And god forbid you question authority or have an opinion. Upper management says they require honesty and integrity from their entire management team but I have seen more liars and manipulators walk thru than anything else. It's actually sad that what once started out as the best company I have ever had the pleasure of working for has turned into the place that makes a person physically sick to walk in to.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at the current practices taking place within the DC.
