    I worked at The Children's Place part-time

    Pros

    Got lead experience
    Had fun doing visuals
    Had an awesome team

    Cons

    Management liked to blame others for something they did
    We were a target store so we had to assume everyone was stealing
    When I tried to switch shifts with a coworker my manager denied it because the girl I was switching with didn't know how to do promotions

    Advice to Management

    Be more understanding
    Take responsibility in your work
    Get to know your team
    And don't talk trash about them to other coworkers

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

    Pros

    You have a job and are getting paid. FT not even working 40 hours during holiday

    Cons

    Everything else about the company. Exceptionally poor customer service and employee treatment. Greedy company. If a product sells well in the middle of the sales that item only will be moved to a hire priced rack.

    Advice to Management

    Hire mgmt that knows what they are doing. Hire mgmt that works AT LEAST 40 hours a week.

    Pros

    Position is very flexible when i need a day off.

    Cons

    Salary is low. Never any hours to complete projects given by company. Usually one on one coverage. No breaks!!! not even 15 mins to yourself. I worked 10 hours 1 Sunday with no break. Please take my advice company stinks, not worth the headache.

    Advice to Management

    The store need more hrs to get the work done in the store, so its not all on the managers.
