    Pros

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

    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.

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

    Pros

    Some of the people I worked with were nice.

    Cons

    The store location I worked at was below average at best. The quality of the clothes was pathetic and the main push is to sign customers up for credit cards. I never felt like a team member, just another body in the store.

    Advice to Management

    Actually care about your team.
