    "Basic Retail Job"

    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.

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

    Pros

    Employee discount was great combined with the sales, somewhat flexible hours when needed, great team to work with

    Cons

    Not enough hours to distribute to people so in ends up being 2 workers in the store at a time, too much workload expected to be done in an unrealistic time frame

    Advice to Management

    Please give stores more hours in order to get more of the work you expect done properly. stand by your employees, and reconsider your return policy which has led to the workers be in situations where customers are horrible towards them

    Pros

    The best part about the job is the staff. It is a good product at a good price. Good employee discount. Great job for Moms.

    They are cutting positions,pay and hours. Really have to push credit card. The different pricing between web site and store makes it hard to reach sales goals.

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

    Pros

    good benefits and PTO for full time employees

    Cons

    -very high wage gap between assistant store manager and manager considering you work the same 40 hrs and as an ASM you would be responsible to know how to the store manager's job if they were to ever be out for a long period of time or quit
    -stingy on payroll hours, they don't want to pay what it takes to have a efficiently running store, although it wouldn't take much more than payroll hours than it does now
    -they don't give enough payroll hours to accomodate all the updates or changes they want throughout the store
    -low pay compared to similar retail stores

    Advice to Management

    try to keep your head above water
