    Pros

    The staff and upper management is amazing. I do miss my work family. great benefits and amazing discounts for moms with children.

    Cons

    Very hard work. Not for the weak and required continuous changes to product layout and floorsets to better the store and sales. very demanding hours for store manager,

    Advice to Management

    Well as manager I think that delegation was a big part of the job to be successful. More store visits and encouragement for the leaders of the locations.

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

    Pros

    ALWAYS BUSY Be it new floorsets, hardmrks, helping customers, processing shipment. Easy to move up due to high turnover

    Cons

    Little hours...at least at my store bc its really small, I feel pay is ridiciuosly low for sales associates, the dress code is bizarre we are always having to ise ladders l, step stools etc but cant wear tennis shoes?? Crazy accidents are bound to happen

    Advice to Management

    Asvice to CORPORATE! STOP having us come off so annoying and pushy at the cashwrap. The rewards program is understandable but the place credit cards and survey blabber gets us rused, eyes rolled ar us and sometimes ppl are just like forget it and walk away from the whole transaction. Seriously
