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

    Pros

    The employee discount. Friendly coworkers. I work in a large store with a large back room. Nothing else comes to mind.

    Cons

    Everything. No one in a management position I have meet knows what they are doing. The designs are ugly! Return policy sucks.

    Advice to Management

    Ask employees what sells best in the stores. Don't let your employees over hear you talking crap about them.
