    Pros

    Just that the work was pretty simple.

    Cons

    Everything else basically. This is what I want to fill out. Basically, I heard about the rumors about how bad this company is in that it doesn't give enough hours, or enough pay. I read the reviews here of Glassdoor and noticed how negative they all were. yet, I was optimistic about what my experience would be at Children's Place. Let's just say that the job seemingly started off well enough, until about a week later when my hours were cut. Two weeks after I started, I noticed that two workers that started at the same time that I did had gotten more hours than I did for that week. Then on the following week, they gave me 0 hours! That was the straw that broke the camels back for me (I've gone through this at another job) so I decided to take the low road by quitting by not showing up to work the next time I was scheduled. Pretty much since they were unprofessional to me, I've decided to be unprofessional to them in return. Why should I give them the courtesy to tell them I was quitting? They don't deserve it.

    Advice to Management

    Simple. either add more hours to the pay roll or distribute the hours you do have fairly.
