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

Pros

PTO and employee morale was good.

Cons

The work was mundane and routine. Senior management and others need to learn basic interpersonal skills and get out of their own heads and work silos. Some employees with influence due to longevity with the company are not open to change or newness and hold onto their projects too tightly, not allowing you to have influence. It's either done their way or it's considered wrong. My VP wasn't a good leader. The person used their arrogance as a weapon, acted cowardly on many occasions and unprofessional, speaking about past employee confidential matters. The person also played favorites versus recognizing true talent and holding onto it. Environment is extremely gossipy and unprofessional. A complete waste of my time, talent, creativity and energy. Onto bigger and better things!

Advice to Management

Lose your egos and focus on the business of The Children's Place.

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

    Pros

    Great discount, wear jeans to work everyday, great prices, upbeat music to work to

    Cons

    Minimal pay with maximum expectations, hours are always being cut, wasted money on marketing all the time, very little opportunity for advancement

    Advice to Management

    Stop spending a ton of money on unnecessary marketing. Value your employees. Store managers get crazy vacation and PTO but part-timers get low pay.

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

    Pros

    co-workers can be friendly, 30% employee discount on all merchandise, get to interact with all sorts of different people

    Cons

    ASM, SSM, and LEAD management are VERY clique-like -- talk negatively about customers over the earpiece, talk negatively about co-workers off the clock, hours are given based on manager's favoritism in the store. Little to NO hours, however management is VERY, VERY big on calling people in "last-minute" to fix issues that should've been taken care of long ago. Poor planning, poor execution, and the only way you'll find satisfaction at this job is if you are still in high school looking to make extra "pocket change".

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to pay more attention to who they are promoting rather than "floor sets." Absolutely NO room for growth or improvement because the MANAGERS are taking all the hours.
