Pros

Great discount, wear jeans to work everyday, great prices, upbeat music to work to

Cons

Minimal pay with maximum expectations, hours are always being cut, wasted money on marketing all the time, very little opportunity for advancement

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop spending a ton of money on unnecessary marketing. Value your employees. Store managers get crazy vacation and PTO but part-timers get low pay.

    Pros

    I initially liked my job at the Children's Place. Worked part time as a sales associate before getting promoted to sales lead. Seems to be small room for working up in the company. Pretty good about scheduling for sales associates.

    Cons

    The entire staff I worked with was entirely female, with one guy in the back doing stock, extremely sexist. Working with so many girls got irritating, especially since they're young and immature.
    Got written up for being physically assaulted and threatened because "I needed to watch the way I spoke to people." I never had any other complaints. Got ganged up on by other management so I quit and found an easier job with higher pay than my management pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to be a more diverse staff to benefit the company and the employees. Higher pay for physically demanding position.

    Pros

    It was a job to pay the bills and receive discounts for children clothes.

    Cons

    Messy people looking for bargains.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More payroll to use so managers are not overworked!
