Advice to Management

Ok lefts begin. Management sucks. They have no clue to what is actually going on. The majority are rude and don't even say hello unless you do first. It is sad that some of them have not grown up from high school and dish out that "Mean Girls" attitude to their employees and treat them like crap. People all have their cliques and if your not up to the standards you are isolated from the group and that is when the great stuff happens if you know what i mean...Company is very political and if you kiss up to the right people you will get ahead. Management and HR totally disregards people are more qualified than the inexperienced brown noses that get promoted. You make call outs and they are never taken into account. God forbid you complain to HR then you get turned into the bad guy and things become even worse. i feel that all of these higher up fools are all connected and have each others backs. The amount of gossip that goes on is more than the actual work that is done. I have seen and heard Senior Management discussing co workers and shredding them to pieces. Totally unprofessional!!! Certain rules apply for some and others get away scott free...I have worked in many places and what I have seen is beyond belief. I always thought that it was bs and that these things don't happen or are only in the movies. Rest assure you will find it at TCP!

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

    Pros

    -Easy to Learn
    -Fond of Promotions for hard, dedicated workers
    -Flexible Scheduling
    -Holiday pay (+Overtime for non-exempt ASM of lower management if available)
    -Changing Company to stay competitive
    -Loyal Customers

    Cons

    -Heavy Workload with minimum Payroll
    -Physically enduring
    -Lack of connections between HQ and store level
    -40+ hour weeks
    -Lack of Corrective Action for poor performing managers (could be seen a pro)
    -Delayed communication between HQ and stores
    -Outdated technology used in store

    Advice to Management

    Never judge a book by its cover. Truly take time to determine who are hard workers, smart workers, result drivers and those with no passion. I understand business and understand reducing payroll- but doing so must come with the understand that workload must be cut accordingly. Those that do meet high expectations make high sacrifices (10-12 hr shifts to catch up since Store Managers are the ONLY free labor) that shouldn't be expected to be made EVERYDAY. Reward them with time to do their job - MANAGE not task. Too many times MANAGERS turn into glorified sales associates. Consider making ASMs non-exempt or putting in more Co-managers.

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

    Pros

    They are a very organized business and you received 17 days of paid vacation and 7 days of paid sick leave

    Cons

    They rearranged the store quite often and they set sales even more often and had short deadlines that we were expected to meet.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice if the people that made the decisions on how the store needed to be set up for sales had actually set them themselves because they were really hard to set and a lot of unneccessary changes.
