    I have been working at The Children's Place part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very good training
    Chance for advancement
    Hours (at least for me are pretty good and I'm a sales associate)
    No call in shifts
    Can get 40 hour week during tax free week

    Cons

    Underpaid
    Dress code is stupid
    Raises are based on the stores performance and aren't really raises
    Have to hear complaints about why we don't compare to online.. (here's why because of people who shoplift and therefore prices go up)

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the CEO because lets be honest.. she's clueless of how to run a company and about getting people to sign up for credit cards! The reason why I say this is because you're pressured to get apps in but if they don't get approved the customer gets po'd because they don't get anything for take the time to apply! Corporate is out of touch with stores needs and employees needs for raises! And that's why employees leave for money and benefits! As for someone who's been there for over 2 years I've seen a lot of people come and go because of the money and the fact being only full time gets insurance and vacation time not part time( like myself) GIVE PART TIME EMPLOYEES WHO BEEN THERE A YEAR OR MORE VACATION TIME!!!!

    I have been working at The Children's Place full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Love my position and my team. There are great benefits and incentives. Personally my dm understands our "struggle" as store managers and recognizes or hard work.

    Cons

    PAYROLL is definitely an issue. Not enough with the workload with shipment, floor sets, visual update and so much more

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

    Pros

    The store is orginzed and managed well. I love team work, and customer oriented environment, as well as the insensitive they offer for reaching goals, or winning company contests.

    Cons

    I don't have any major complaints, although our company computer would freeze and hardly ever work. It was a hard thing to work around, because we had to do so much on it.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest updating the computer and any other use of technology. It is hard to perform a job, when we don't have proper functioning tools to do so.
