    I have been working at The Children's Place full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits and vacation time.

    Cons

    The workload is ridiculous for the amount you are paid! On top of helping customers you are expected to re-work the floorset weekly, process freight daily, handle administrative work, etc. It gets old fast.

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

    Pros

    There are some great lower level employees in the company.

    Cons

    This company has "restructured" EVERY year I have worked here. They pay minimum wage, there's no work/home life balance, and the credit card requirements are insane. I am currently seeking another job.

    Advice to Management

    You get what you pay for. This company expects a lot out of people making less than $10/hour (ie-every key holder but the general manager. The work load is insane and yet you skimp on payroll....
