    I worked at The Children's Place part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Depending on the team you have, it could be fun. The discount was awesome (30%). I really can't think of anything else.

    Cons

    Only schedules 2 people at a time, yet expects those 2 people to get a GIANT workload done; All the while trying to deal with shipment, paperwork, and customer service. We can't realistically be expected to process boxes upon boxes of merchandise AND greet every customer, ring people up, try to give out blue bags, etc. It's just not all going to happen. Also, the politics of the place are insane. Don't ever get on anyone's bad side for even a second there, or you will be forced out.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more associates and schedule 3 or 4 people at a time. The place is run terribly!

    I worked at The Children's Place part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The best part of this job is the 30% discount. It was also nice working with children and the customers were friendly for the most part. The hours were flexible when you received any.

    Cons

    Extremely poor management. My store manager was like a tyrant. Her way or the highway. She'd stress loss prevention and company rules but wouldn't follow them herself. The store was always trashed so closing would be hard. You'd have to rush to get things in decent order in a timely manner because there were never any hours. Corporate expects way too much from their employees. Constant change in the store with lack of hours called for high demands and stress on employees. The store receives shipment every few days and there's never enough time to process and get everything out on the floor. It's unrealistic and definitely isn't worth $8/hr.

    Advice to Management

    Hire professional Store Managers and Assistant Mangers! There are many incompetent managers just scraping their way along. If you want a well maintained store, give more hours, and pay a little more.
