Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Work life balance. Upper management.

Cons

LABOR/ Lack or hours to keep up store or to develop managers. Price changes every week.
NO consistency. Shipment must be processed between customers with no hours dedicated to the work load.

Advice to Management

Spend $ to fix customer service and stores visual appearance. Too many great things happening with the company to have have clean great stores and awesome customer service.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Can't think of any.

    Cons

    Overworked, under staffed. Management just "churns and burns" employees.
    No core values. Bottom line is all important. District Managers think employee is negative if issues are aired.

    Advice to Management

    Try to remember that you are dealing with people, not machines. Treat them as you would want to be treated, instead of jockeying for position on the corporate ladder.


  2. "Prepare to be taken advantage of and gossiped about. Basically prepare to go back to high school..."

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

    Pros

    It's a pretty easy job. You work with your hands every day. You meet new people every day.

    Cons

    Store manager will completely ignore your availability and schedule you any way she wants and get mad at you if you don't work the schedule she gives you. Won't allow smoke breaks but will take smoke breaks herself. Won't allow phones but will have her phone out. Gossips about employees from her store and surrounding stores to managers. If she doesn't like what an employee does, she will bad mouth the employee to other managers rather than correct the employee like a store manager should. She plays favorites, if you're not her best friend, she will look for ways to get you written up.

    Advice to Management

    Act like a store manager. Stop gossiping, playing favorites, and breaking your own rules.
