    Pros

    If you have kids the discount is good. They offer benefits to all employees

    Wages are not balanced. They don’t pay well. Unless they are desperate to fill a position. The work load is unrealistic and you don’t get support from upper management

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at The Children's Place part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The family environment I found working here for 2 and a half years was amazing and irreplaceable. Very flexible scheduling, not hard work,

    Cons

    Poor Management choices. Upper levels push too hard on understaffed staff. Management will choose people not fit for a promotion in order to look good.
