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

Pros

The managers were really nice and they were understanding about most things. Polite and respectful customers can really make your day,

Cons

Closing in this store is dreadful. During the day, kids would be running around the place like it is a day care center with no adults. By the end of the day, the place would look like a tornado hit it. Sometimes, closing associates would have to stay till 1 or 2 am to close the store. I never understood why they couldn't call more people to come in so everyone can leave earlier..Oh and, customers can be very very rude.

Advice to Management

Be more respectful of your associate's schedules. We are working minimum wage for too much!

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

    Pros

    It's really a lot of fun. I love the small retail daily routine.

    Cons

    The pay is pathetic, especially for all the hours we end up putting in and the very heavy workload.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your staff more! This would solve a lot of the turnover and money/time wasted on constantly training new-hires!
