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

    Pros

    -Great pay/benefits
    -Never boring
    -Good employee discount

    Cons

    -This company has very unrealistic expectations of store teams
    -Extremely low payroll given just to run the store, let alone all the other workload we have
    -HR doesn't listen or help. They receive a complaint and throw it in the garbage.
    -Store manager is the only salaried position, so you end up working 50+ hours a week because you don't have payroll for anyone else to do the work.
    -"Boys Club" in HQ is ridiculous - if you're a female, good luck!

    Advice to Management

    Read the reviews on this site! A lot of your employees are all saying the same things, and this is honest feedback you should use to make improvements.

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

    Pros

    The only pro is the PTO package. If you get to use it. The blackout period is just about all year long!!!!!

    Cons

    This is the absolute most dysfuntional retail companies I have ever been employed for in my life. They use the salaried management position to get all of the workload done. They ended the co-manager salaried postions for 90% of the company with a plan to use and abuse the remaining salaried position left. We are threatened, bullied and work out of fear to perform. They have unrealistic expectaions and expect to get that work load done immediately. Hours are at bare minimal "as our D.M. puts it" and expect us to recruit at the drop of a dime. Well my question is, how can you have a positive attitude to recruit for a compnay that you have grown to depsise? How can you have a positive outlook for your future when you head is spinning out of control. This will lead to no work life balance and getting menatally and physically drained. I am not one to complain but needed to get the word out that the Children's Place is not commpany to work for if yo value your life. I was embarrassed to even admit I work for that company and am glad I was smart enough to move on. I feel sorry for the next victim to work for this so called company.
