Pros
  • Employee discount is pretty nice (in 40 reviews)

  • great discount if you have kids (in 24 reviews)

Cons
  • My advice to anyone that was looking for a job would be to run very far away from TCP until all the upper management changes (in 58 reviews)

  • This company needs to get their act together, Floor sets are simple and well explained but the updates to the sets are overwhelming (in 33 reviews)

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

    Pros

    Steady paycheck. Store associates act as a team.

    Cons

    Constant change. Retail environment means weekends and holidays. Retail stores accountable to make sales plans but company directly markets much better sales to online customers.

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

    Pros

    I love the culture and comradity the store brings. The company let's you own your store and make decisions that is best for your location.

    Cons

    The workload is often unrealistic, causing more stress than is necessary. Many of the problems stem from lack payroll and only having two people on the clock at all times.

    Advice to Management

    Dig more into details about workload. I was told the workload came in on Mondays for the week, however, we often get a new project or pricing several times a week along with 20 boxes of shipment that his to hit the floor immediately. Prioritizing is key to succeeded.
