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 worked at The Children's Place part-time

    Pros

    friendly atmosphere, well organized, I loved making customers day!

    Cons

    Required to be pushy with credit card apps and sign ups, you have to get a certain amount every day. Low pay

    Advice to Management

    not everyone wants to sign up for all that stuff no matter how sweet the deal is. When employees are required to get them to, it frustrates both the customer and the worker. It shouldn't have to be a requirement to get a certain amount each day. It should just be a requirement to ask them and let the know about the percentage off just for filling out the paper.

    Pros

    Good discount, Flexible hours.East interview and easy job to get.

    Cons

    Long hours especially if you work the closing shift. Managers get hired off of referrals so management literally knows nothing. No real room for advancement

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes your employees know more than you so listen sometimes. Also downtown brooklyn fulton street, the manager there is horrible id replace her ASAP.

    Pros

    Working at TCP has its perks: - Great employee discount. - Flexible scheduling. - Friendly coworkers. It's a good starter job to get you into the retail world. It is very fast-paced & there's always something to do.

    Cons

    However, there are some things that make working there very stressful. - Children will destory everything! - Very few hours are offered. - Only 2 or 3 employees during a shift, so recovering the store is really hard when the store is very busy.

    Advice to Management

    At my store, the management team does a pretty good job with prioritizing tasks. The downfall is just that little hrs are offered to our store, so upkeeping such a high-traffic store is difficult.

    Pros

    The management team is amazing as well as co workers. We are more like a family than anything.

    Cons

    Busy all the time. The work load is a lot for the hours given. Sales associate can't pass 25 hours. Corporate expects so much and they can never make up their minds

    Pros

    When it's busy it's better.

    Cons

    Can be slow and hard to find things to do when everything is done.

    Advice to Management

    There were to associates that had worked there longer than anyone else and they need to learn to be more friendly and less "catty" to customers and to other associates.

    Pros

    Worked 2x for Children's Place. Once in FL and then in NC. Great discounts. Pay is decent.

    Cons

    Constant Management changes in 2nd store. Always changing product vs focusing on customers. TCP card promos are hard unless you really know how to sell.

    Advice to Management

    Stop having so many weekly floor changes. Go back to focusing more on customers vs always trying to put out a new and different product change than the week before.
