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

    Pros

    -Great pay/benefits
    -Never boring
    -Good employee discount

    Cons

    -This company has very unrealistic expectations of store teams
    -Extremely low payroll given just to run the store, let alone all the other workload we have
    -HR doesn't listen or help. They receive a complaint and throw it in the garbage.
    -Store manager is the only salaried position, so you end up working 50+ hours a week because you don't have payroll for anyone else to do the work.
    -"Boys Club" in HQ is ridiculous - if you're a female, good luck!

    Current leadership wave from the Gap/Old Navy are an unprofessional "boys club".

    Pros

    The Store Managers work harder than any other retail company out there. They are good people who don't realize their worth. The product is good for the quality and price but the way the teams are worked and under-appreciated to get the merchandise on the sales floor and sold is not fair.

    Cons

    The current leadership "wave" is unqualified. Everyone was put into position one level higher than they were at the Gap. They are not ready for their current roles and they cover for eachother-even HR, when big issues such as abuse and discrimination are brought to light.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Jane Elfers and Natalie Levy are AMAZING retailers! They can find better stores leadership and make The Children's Place a top company to work for if they only bring in quality stores leadership.
