  3. "work here as a last resort"

    I worked at The Children's Place part-time

    Pros

    If you have kids then the 30% off discount is great.
    If you're just looking to work a couple days a week then this is good too.
    If you stick it out here there are chances to move up to a sales lead or management positions. The dress code is also pretty laid-back.

    Cons

    Not enough payroll for the amount of work the company wants you to do.
    If part time, you're literally there only 2 couple days a week for a few hours.
    If full time, you're there constantly.
    Schedule changes were made without letting associates know ahead of time.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at children’s place for three years, it was great as a starting job and I gained a ton of experience. In the district I worked in the turn over rate was incredibly high throughout all three years.
