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

Pros

Good benefits, PTO (though you won't be able to use it all), made great friendships

Cons

The work-load is ridiculous. The mandatory holidays and weekends kill any hope for family time. The company is very re-active to business trends and that means last minute notice on events, sales, promotions, ect.- this equates to long nights and unforeseen times that a store manager is required to work. My family suffered silently for years, until the damage was done and I was left with no social life and no husband.

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

    Pros

    30 to 40 percent off for the employees. Works with your schedule. Meet some nice customers and learn to work as a team.

    Cons

    Way too much gossip coming from the managers and they are rude and like to bully the workers. They are also rude to the customers. Usually the assistant managers. Unrealistic company goals. The Place card is also another horror. They force us associates to practically beg to have a customer apply for the credit card. There could be no more than 10 people who came through the door and they want at least 8 of them to apply fit the card. Also long work hours sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Start hiring managers who are friendly and aren't immature and talk crap about there employees to other employees.

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

    Pros

    Customers are great for the most part. I enjoyed helping parents choose outfits for their kids. Short 4 hour shifts for part-time

    Cons

    I had no actual training, they put you out on sales floor and you are expected to assist customers and help keep store organized all at once. Hours are cut if you do not meet sales for the day.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your store managers provide actual training!
