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

Pros

I find it difficult to name a pro. Micro-Management down to the thread selection on the garment. Merchandisers have little to no say in process or in the final collection. The amount of double-triple-quadruple work is unbelievable. CEO is a horrific person with zero regard to the staff, this is clear in the high turnover and the revolving door of executives that have either left quickly or were fired.

Cons

Cons – Everything down to the negative attitude of everyone and disregard of personal time. Zero work/life balance; 80+ hour work week expectations. Always worked weekends and as late as 2am in order to meet unrealistic expectations. Most people were very unhappy with work environment and management.

    I have been working at The Children's Place part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working around cute clothes is kinda fun

    Cons

    Managers treat the sales associates like crap, I think its a trend in this company because I have never been treated like this and many of you also have said the same thing.
    When there is a new floor set it takes FOREVER to complete it and makes the managers all stressed, so annoying.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being unappreciative, the sales associates are the ones doing everything you want so stop making us all want to quit.
