    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!

    I have been working at The Children's Place full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay, benefits and time off are amazing. My team was amazing.

    Cons

    Everything else! Within the 6 years I worked at TCP I went from loving my job to hating everything about it. Everything that others wrote is spot on. I found the majority of district and regional leadership to have little or no ethics and will smile in your face and stab you in the back. By the time I left I felt completely undervalued and expendable. Workload and payroll models are beyond ridiculous. Expectation of service when you can't even get to your giant pile of boxes in the back is crazy. I should have left two years ago but the PTO and pay kept me locked in. I finally decided no amount of money or time off was worth the way this company made me feel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back Ezra. Maybe not literally, but the idea that team members are valuable and that they matter. No amount of "thank you" covers how worthless you feel when your work doesn't matter.
