    Open, friendly place for work

    Former Employee - Sales Associate in Scarborough, ON

    I worked at The Children's Place part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The management is friendly, engaging, and always thinking of ways to improve. They are helpful, easy to approach and talk to, and ready to help both the customer as well as their employees. Schedules are flexible, and managers are accommodating and very fair and understanding.

    Cons

    Hours are inconsistent. It is difficult to determine a stable or consistent paycheque, as you could work an abundance of hours during the holidays but then drop to only a few in a week immediately after.
