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)

    Pros

    I loved the environment, it was always so fun and bright. It's your typical retail store, but the people were usually nice and courteous to you. It made the time go by fast.

    Cons

    I was the highest performing member of my team, and I met my yearly goals. Because the rest of my team did not, I did not receive a raise at the time of my review. That was highly disappointing.

    Advice to Management

    More emphasis on team building, less on numbers! That is how to keep your team happy (and the numbers will follow).

    Pros

    The benefits are excellent including health, paid time off, and overall work life balance. The company recognizes excellence down to a sales associate.

    Cons

    Work load/payroll ratio is upside down!
    Sales associate pay is the worst.

    Advice to Management

    Please look into investing into sales associate pay. If not pay, some type of consistent incentive program for them.

    Pros

    The store is very easy to learn about and see where clothes go. You don't have to deal with customers unless they ask for a size or at the register. Your main focus is te store and management is amazing and friendly

    Cons

    Some rude customers and I wish we could wear tennis shoes

    Advice to Management

    None so far they are amazing at training and have great patience

    Pros

    The company prefers to promote from within. Flexible scheduling for part time associates to allow for other employment if desired.

    Cons

    Constant updates to floorset would be my only con. Payroll is not always generous however this is the case in retail in general.

    Pros

    I have a great staff to work with that can always help out if you ever need a shift covered and are very friendly. And I love seeing all the cute little kids and baby's that walk through the store I can say the majority of the time you never have a dull day working here.

    Cons

    I have nothing but good to say about the company and my staff :)

    Advice to Management

    You're awesome keep up the great work :)
