    Pros

    The customer are great and the quarterly raises are great

    Cons

    The downside to this job is that the employees may seem they care about customers but in reality all the company and management cares about is Parent Magazine sales. They push it so hard and you get in trouble if you don't sell the right amount. The other downside is you have to make phone calls and are forced to call customers at home to thank them for shopping.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop pushing phone calls. The customers don't like it and neither do employees.

    I have been working at Motherhood Maternity part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The job is amazing, I guess the discount as well but other wise that's it. I guess if your pregnant it is the best time to use your discount, but it is not recommended to if your not unless you don't care what your wearing.

    Cons

    The management is ok, but the tsas don't take the job as seriously. The Store Manager is amazing love her to death.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe you should give it a shot to hire from within because a lot of the people they hire from the outside won't last more than two weeks.

    I worked at Motherhood Maternity full-time

    Pros

    I loved the clientele. Meeting new women and hearing their exciting stories and sharing their excitement. Easy to make sales being a mother of 2 myself.

    Cons

    High average sale, almost unrealistic. Not given a lot of allocated hours to do what all needed to be done in a weeks time.

    I worked at Motherhood Maternity part-time

    Pros

    Most of the team was like family.

    Cons

    Management will steal your sales and your hours are based on the sales you make.. Favoritism definitely shows here.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire so many people to work such a small store.


  6. "Good place if you're sales orientated"

    Pros

    Good place with advancement opportunities and the ability to meet higher ups face to face. Opportunity for recognition and rewards.

    Cons

    Not very flexible with shifts and understaffed which results in less flexibility. Tends to let customers take advantage of employees and the system.

    Advice to Management

    More hands on training. These are not just sales associates but advisors for what these women should expect from their clothes during this wonderful but difficult time in their lives.

    I worked at Motherhood Maternity part-time

    Pros

    I loved interacting with the moms and my co workers were awesome.

    Cons

    Management is horrible! This particular location has a very high turn over rate. I was picked on by my manager and even other employers saw that. Then I was fired while I was on maternity leave! I was fired because I didn't meet my sales goal for the month. But the month wasn't over (I got fired October 23 2016) and I missed two weeks of work due to complications in pregnancy that month. ( she has my doctor notices and hospital statements so they were excised) Everyone says I should go to corporate but I believe in karma. That was the worst job ever, and only job I ever got fired from! The other employees quite shortly after I was let go. They didn't like the manager as well. She kept everyone stressed out. It should have a been a fun job, but it was horrible. I understand you have to run a business but shouldn't no retail job be stressful. Sorry this is all over the place.

    Advice to Management

    Stop picking on people, and stop micro managing. That's why you are hiring new people every two months.
