I have been working at The Children's Place part-time (more than an year)Pros
If you have kids, you get a discount of 25%, if you don't have kids then there is no benefit to you.Cons
- Employees are overworked and underpaid, NOBODY aside of managers work full time. Nobody. They will hire A LOT of people and BARELY give any hours, even if you are making your budget. When I first started, was not bad, was getting 20 hours + per week, after Christmas, was about the same more or less, then coming into February I was seeing weeks of fives hours. Who the heck goes to work for FIVE hours a week?Oh and then management hired new people and gave them better hours than I.
-Even if you work 9 or 10 hours a day, you are only allowed to half an hour break. This can get pretty exhausting when you're hitting 7K plus days with only 2 people at the cash, and only one person on the floor and since ONE person can't have their eyes in all the departments at once, you will be robbed and management will blame you for it.
-Floor Sets change ALL THE TIME, making me embarrassed when I can't find something I want to show to a customer. It's confusing and honestly a waste of time to make so many floor-set/window changes...
-Transactions are unbearable for the customer and embarrassing to me. You have to ask for their phone number e-mail address.. it can get pretty long... and it's IRRITATING every time a customer gets MAD AT ME for asking all this personal information, it's not my fault, what do you want me to do? If your email/phone number counts are low you get chewed out by the managers and they want you to be parasites and suck all the information out of the customers.
-returns/exchanges with a + or - balance or the worst, not only do you have to pester them with their e-mail and phone number you also have to ask them their first name, last name, address, postal code, a piece of ID if you're giving them a store credit. The process is invasive and not only that, it's irritating for customers who have to wait in line for so long so I can ask these stupid
-The last assistant manager who was hired, was from outside the company and she turned out to be a total piece of trash, leaving work early, coming in late or just not showing up at all. They should hire within the company or promote people if they really want their store to work well
-And yes, even with these tiny hour budgets, we're supposed to clear shipment boxes very quickly even when there is so much to do.
-Even after all the bad hours, if you are on call, you wont know if you work until at least 2 hours before your shift and I have seen some people's schedules who have had 3 days on call at least, you wont be able to plan anything ahead of time.Advice to ManagementAdvice
