    Former Employee - Sales Associate

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

    Pros

    I loved the people I was working with! It wasn't a hard job, but it was a basic mall job that was crazy on the weekends. Overall, pretty easy work that wasn't really fun at all.

    Cons

    It is miserable cleaning up the store after a weekend day. People do not watch their kids when they enter the store, and there are clothes and shoes EVERYWHERE! Lots of people stole from the store I was working at, too.
