I worked at The Children's Place part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Working at The Children's Place was beneficial because it is a typical sales position that is a good job to start out with in between school.

Cons

There are a few downsides working at The Children's Place. Aside from earning only minimum wage, the managers take advantage of the employees and make them act like cleaning ladies. I had a back injury at the time and couldn't life heavy items; the managers made me lift a super heavy vacuum to vacuum the entire store. It was ridiculous.

Advice to Management

Treat your employees with the same respect as you want.

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

    Effective system in place as well as an amazing cohesive atmosphere.

    Mandatory working on holidays. No different than all retail, but it was a huge downfall for me.
