I worked at The Children's PlacePros
The tasks do not require a lot of intelligence, so if you want a simple job I guess this is it. Also, the other employees were nice. But that doesn't really matter because talking to them is frowned upon.
If you like kids, you will really enjoy being on the sales floor. They really do say the cutest things!Cons
When I was hired, I was told it was one of their best stores, and they would have nearly 40 hours per week of work for me to do. The store was being renovated and I helped out, and that was the only week I got 40 hours. For two weeks after that it was 20 hours (ok.. thats fine), then it became 10 hours. One week it became 5 hours (now i'm angry). But once they put the schedule up and I had 0 hours for the week, it was time to leave.
I was a very dependable, punctual, hard working stock employee and they walked all over me. I was always respectful and had a good positive attitude. That is until the week where I was only given 5 hours on the schedule for the week and expected to handle all of the shipments for the week with one other guy who also was given 5 hours. There was like 50+ boxes to unpack, and more on the way!
The way I was treated at this place really damaged my self-esteem. I don't know why.. I guess I just felt like I hit rock bottom there (and I did).
- Small stock room, no space for employee lunches
- The most bureaucratic company I have ever worked for. never-ending rules. You can really tell a lot of mothers are behind the company. I'm surprised I didn't get grounded at some point and sent to my room.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Be more aggressive in demanding the head office supplies you with appropriate amount of hours to run your store. As management, you are the only ones who can make these requests, and your poor tired complaints that head office is not giving you enough hours really don't matter to stock/sales employees who can't make that difference for you.Doesn't RecommendDisapproves of CEO
