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

    Pros

    Decent people to work with. They all genuinely get along, and it helps to get tasks done.

    Cons

    There was no dedicated break room. It was a 'space' at the back of the stock room. Because of the location, there are multiple attempts of burglary, and the security is really poor.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, great learning opportunities, positive environment, awesome employee discount & a management team that sticks by you

    Cons

    Payroll can often be stretched thin. Sales associates only make minimum wage making it had to stay competitive. Training can sometimes come across as a "learn as you go" process

    Advice to Management

    More in-store presence. Merchandising seminars would be helpful with some floor-sets.
