I have been working at The Children's Place full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

pay is good for SSMs, but low for everyone else considering the workload.

Cons

payroll allocations, product flow, applications sensoring. Outdated procedures. My advice... stay away.

Advice to Management

three coverage is needed everyday that there is more taht 15 boxes of shipment coming in because of the outdated processing. Also, FFirst is a great idea, SO GIVE US THE HOURS TO DO THAT! Company praises on work life balance, but all major events and sets this year have fallen on holidays. Mothers day, fathers day, etc. This may not effect you in the coporate building, but think of us at a store level. We are PISSED to have to work late on these important dates consistantly.

    I have been working at The Children's Place part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    there really aren't any; i've worked with some great people and some bad people, but that's the same at any store or with any company.

    Cons

    corporate management is disorganized and changes frequently, wages are low and raises rarely happen, understaffing during business hours puts unrealistic expectations on employees, the customers treat employees very poorly and bring in very badly behaved children, the merchandise is poor quality and comes from countries that use sweatshops.

    Advice to Management

    give your employees are reason to care about their jobs, and maybe they will.
