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

Pros

The managers were wonderful, very friendly and extremely helpful. I loved all but one person I worked with. The kids are adorable that come into the store. Only had a couple rude customers which the manager handled for me. Good employee discount.

Cons

Employees did not get hours even during the holiday. Some weeks I did not get any hours at all and others I was given one day maybe two if I was lucky. No hours means low to no pay.

Advice to Management

Don't hire people if you can't pay them or give them hours.

    I have been working at The Children's Place full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Depending on the store there are great customers and great fellow employees.

    Cons

    Company is clueless as what it takes to train and keep employees. Expected to have no life and drop everything for TCP. Pay more to new hires than promotes. Very un-organized, send through info at the last minute and expect you to drop everything and get it done then with no additional payroll.

    Advice to Management

    Stop overhauling the stores and consider starting with a management change, at the very top!

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

    Pros

    Honestly if it wasn't for the people I work with, I would have quit a long time ago. But if you have kids you save a lot of money on clothes!

    Cons

    The amount of work they expect of you for very low wage is rediculous! The hours are nothing you could ever support yoursef on, unless you are lucky enough to get into management..Associates in my store average from 8 to 20 hours per week.....
