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

    Pros

    Your coworkers are your family members
    30% off all clothing. Clearance included and discount can be used online.

    Cons

    Long hours. Went hours without pay because overtime was not “approved”. If there’s a major shopping holiday such as Back to School or Christmas season expect to be there 3 hours past your scheduled time and be on high alert of shoplifters

    Advice to Management

    Management is great within the locations. District managers could be more considerate for what the lower level associates have to deal with.

    They pay minimum wage and expect a lot of work to be finished in little amount of time

    pay employees for the amount of work they have to do

    Pros

    Flexible hours, easy to move up in company, good experience, very easy job

    Cons

    High turnover rate, constantly training someone new and they end up quitting before their first paycheck, pay is very low, discount is useless, over work some regular employees like sales associates and don’t pay for the time, cheap company.
