A great place to gain experience, but over worked and under paid.

    I have been working at The Children's Place full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are very good.

    Cons

    NO PAYROLL!!!!!!! Even when you make more than plan, you still get no payroll Heavy workload every week (floor set, floor set updates, price changes, markdowns) and no additional payroll given. This company has no structured.

    Advice to Management

    IF YOU WANT A LIFE BALANCE, STRUCTURE,PLANNING, DECENT PAYROLL. Stay away from this place

    I have been working at The Children's Place full-time

    Pros

    Associates are awesome. They make work fun.

    Cons

    Workload/Payroll imbalance Insincere upper management (i.e., DMs, RD, and visiting HQ executives are shady.) Store Manager is the furthest one is likely to go as a field employee. Updates that throw the whole store off course for a week. Shady peers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it real. Consider how unrealistic the workload is. You all expect SMs to be three people.
