    Pros

    Great co-workers, High standards and some great opportunities if your willing to put in the EXTRA work!

    Cons

    Expect to be there after your scehduled time to work, A huge workload not enough time or employees, Managers expect you to move like the speed of light while giving customers the attention and time they need to drive sales (it's impossible to do help 5 or more customers, do shipment and replenish the floor in an hour.) very draining of energy and time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accept reality that everything can not get done in 2 seconds. Realize that maybe small stores with less employees can't do as much work load as a larger store with more employees. Be realistic a dramastic window change and floor set every week is not going to drive sales differently than it did the week before (except for monster sales). Especially floor set it does not need to be changed EVERY week its stressful on the sales associates that are important to The Children's Place. Just understand the workload of stores and learn to work with your employees instead of driving them away. You need us! HELLO

    Great place to work if you have children under the age of 14.

    I worked at The Children's Place

    Pros

    Employee discounts are good. It was great a couple of years ago, then the company decided to raise the %.
    Exctiting to see children's expressions when looking for clothing/accys.

    Cons

    Last minute changes; e.g. 1 day sign/placement of merchandise. 2 days later, everything must be changed within 24 hrs.
    Not enough communication in regards to employee/mgt. action plans.
    No support for the store manager.
    Corporate expects store to be 100% on an official visit, where the priority should be focused on customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When discussing reviews or planning visits, take time to consider the location of the store and what support you can give mgt. Remember, saying what to do behind your desks and not realizing what is truly happening in real time in stores will make you second guess your actions.
