Not in a miilion years!

SSM (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

ProsThe only pro is the PTO package. If you get to use it. The blackout period is just about all year long!!!!!

ConsThis is the absolute most dysfuntional retail companies I have ever been employed for in my life. They use the salaried management position to get all of the workload done. They ended the co-manager salaried postions for 90% of the company with a plan to use and abuse the remaining salaried position left. We are threatened, bullied and work out of fear to perform. They have unrealistic expectaions and expect to get that work load done immediately. Hours are at bare minimal "as our D.M. puts it" and expect us to recruit at the drop of a dime. Well my question is, how can you have a positive attitude to recruit for a compnay that you have grown to depsise? How can you have a positive outlook for your future when you head is spinning out of control. This will lead to no work life balance and getting menatally and physically drained. I am not one to complain but needed to get the word out that the Children's Place is not commpany to work for if yo value your life. I was embarrassed to even admit I work for that company and am glad I was smart enough to move on. I feel sorry for the next victim to work for this so called company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros: Pay, benefits and time off are amazing. My team… Cons: Everything else! Within the 6 years I worked at TCP I went from loving my job to hating everything about it. Everything that… Advice to Senior Management: Bring back Ezra. Maybe not literally, but the idea that team members are valuable and that… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
