    I worked at The Children's Place part-time

    Pros

    Good discounts, past faced during holidays.

    Cons

    Holiday hours get crazy, underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    For how many assignments are given to part timers, they need to be paid more!

    I worked at The Children's Place part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Yearly bonuses depending on store sales and performance for the year. They work with school schedules and if you have other employment. The discount is great 30% on top of sales and the 401k if you're full time because the match whatever you put in.

    Cons

    There is no room to grow anymore. The company got rid of its assistant manager roles and other than store manager there is one other full time position (which is basically the ASM role) but for less pay. The pay also sucks now. You were able to negotiate your pay at one point and now they start you off at a dollar over minimum wage for part time managers so you're doing extra work but getting paid like an associate. They also cap hours on top of pay so you are not allowed to go over 20hrs unless someone is on vacation or you're taking a shift for someone.

    Advice to Management

    Since there is no room to grow and no competitive pay you should expect a huge turnover rate. It is not enough for the amount of work that gets done.
