I have been working at The Children's Place part-time for more than a year

Pros

good people
fun environment
managers work with you on your availability
DISCOUNT!

Cons

Hours vary too often
The on calls suck!
Unrealistic expectations
Lots of pressure to get the PLACE card
When they need you they need you and thats it no if ands buts about it
too much of a double standard....you cant be late but a manager can

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I suggest you start rewarding your employees better wages. Without them the company wouldn't be making any money. Also your deadlines are unrealistic and the window changes and floor sets are ridiculous. Your products aren't selling because of a display they aren't selling because they are not up with the current fashion trends for children.

    I have been working at The Children's Place part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Honestly if it wasn't for the people I work with, I would have quit a long time ago. But if you have kids you save a lot of money on clothes!

    Cons

    The amount of work they expect of you for very low wage is rediculous! The hours are nothing you could ever support yoursef on, unless you are lucky enough to get into management..Associates in my store average from 8 to 20 hours per week.....

    Pros

    Great Sales Associates
    If you enjoy customer interaction this will be a great job for you
    Discount insensitives are good

    Cons

    The pay does not equal the amount of work you put in, they will work you until you want to quit for as little pay as they can get. It is hard to work for this company if you have a family as the hours are crazy and you will definitely be pulling some overnights. Very little upward mobility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise management to be more aware of their employees moral and overall health. While this is a discount retailer sometimes you need to focus more on the customers than the money as in the long term you will gain more income.
