I worked at The Children's Place part-time for more than a year

Pros

Great flexibility for students when they have the right management in the positions.

like any typical sales job. The company is a good standing one and great discounts.

Cons

not very challenging, can become very routine and mundane after a few months.

constantly changing management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

create a better environment for those who want to stay. Promote within. Take your time to scout and interview managers for people who are the right fit... not just the ok salary requests.

    I worked at The Children's Place part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good discount for clothes, great associates

    Cons

    Very hostile work environment and bad management. I worked in a store close to corporate and learned very fast how negative those in higher positions are. I would never work for this company again. I survived the long hours, little pay, and no benefits for a management position. There is no system for growth of employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should really look into the store managers you hire. Also in the year I was there 3 district managers were let go and replaced. Instead of firing good people because sale results arent up to par try looking at your operations and those in higher positions that are not furthering any growth.

    Pros

    Fast pace environment .always string to do never bored

    Cons

    you lose outside life if you work there ,you work harder than everyone else in retail but still its never enough .company is desperate and have unrealistic expectation . running high volume store with minimum coverage and no decent pay. you have to be desperate for a job if you want to work there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if you decide to work for the company ask as much pay as possible because they will make you work for it anyways .
