Disappointing

Store Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at The Children's Place full-time for more than a 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!

Advice to Senior ManagementRead the reviews on this site! A lot of your employees are all saying the same things, and this is honest feedback you should use to make improvements.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
