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

Pros

Starbucks nearby... Starbucks nearby... Starbucks nearby... Starbucks nearby... Starbucks nearby... Starbucks nearby... And close to home. That's it!

Cons

Hostile work environment cultivated from the highest level down, unhappy culture in most non-creative departments, employees are disposable. If you are unable to operate as a puppet robot, you will not survive. This company attempted to force me to ignore compliance regulations. They hook you in with a great PTO and salary package that is difficult to replace when you're trying to move on before they dispose of you.

Advice to Management

Burn the place to the ground and start over...

    "Store Manager"

    Pros

    Flexible hours, competitive pay and PTO

    Cons

    Corporate seems disorganized and unable to standby decisions. They either wait till the last minute or constantly revise their decisions. Corporate always changes their due dates of when things are to be done, while stores remain accountable to uphold theirs. When you have tight payroll and have to redo projects due to their lack of decision making it totally makes me feel that they disrepect managers time. Manager does not get their own personal e-mail, which makes it difficult to talk to dm on private confidential matters. POS systems are not up-to-date. Payroll is extremely tight and stores are run on two coverage. Since associates are not allowed to be alone in the store at anytime, this type of coverage typically means you are unable to leave on your break. Store manager position is meerly a "job" not a career. This position and the company were misrepresented to me at the interview process. Do yourself a favor and don't look for employment here.

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

    Pros

    Company is changing, so perfect time to gain experience.

    Cons

    Working with managers who have been with the company for years. They are scared to think outside of the box and ruffle any feathers.

    Advice to Management

    Lots of managers who have never managed teams before. Spend sometime getting to know your associates, know what they want out of their careers, and allow them to be innovative and make decisions on their own. This prevents me from recommending the company as a place to work. I fear others may come and find themselves extremely frustrated by the old systems and managers who are anxious.
