    I worked at The Children's Place part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Employee discount. Great Teams. Flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    No payroll for work load expected. No support from upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your associates feedback especially when you ask for it. Do not lump everything together all at once example Floorset, hardmarks and PPP all in the same weekend. then change it all again the next week especially during a holiday.

    I have been working at The Children's Place full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Generous pto time. Although you never have an opportunity to use it.

    Cons

    Stores operate on minimal payroll almost all year. Occasionally extra payroll is given for things like clean sweep or writing reviews but nothing is allocated for setting a floorset or processing high amounts of freight. This seems very backwards to me. I've been in retail management along time and most companies want to make sure what the customers see and experience is #1 priority when it comes to payroll. Usually we are expected to set a new floorset, change the window, set all new marketing, change every mannequin, and process the freight for the floorset with only 2 people working and all while the store is open for business. Us tearing apart a wall is not what our customers want to experience! And God help us if a customer complains because we didn't give them enough attention while we were "multitasking" our butt off! And THERE IS NEVER PAYROLL TO TRAIN NEW PEOPLE! And photo reviews are a freakin joke. Floorset is done? Nope reset all the walls because those mannequins need to be an inch higher. Be prepared to bring your own toilet paper at least a couple of times a year because supply order freezes include not ordering tp!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    STOP CHASING YOUR TAILS! Get a clue about the reality of running a store that is open 72 hours a week on 165 hours of payroll. We showed you we could do it because most of us a scared of losing our job if we don't hit your ridiculous deadlines. Oh and if your going to trust managers with over a $1 million a year in sales and a set of keys to your store maybe you should trust us to set a floorset without sending a ton of photos to prove we know how to set a perfect floorset when every store is a different size and shape. The customers don't give a damn if the mannequin is 38 inches high or 39 inches. These kinds of details are a waste of our limited payroll. Jane, go spend 1 week in an average volume store during floorset and you don't get to pull the ceo card. Wear comfy shoes and get your hands dirty! Bet you allocate more payroll after 1 week of floorset hell!

    Pros

    I love the people that i work with

    Cons

    Low pay, non realistic expectations, No feeling of accomplishment ever. Nothing is ever complete because they change everything so often. Insurance is over priced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give hours. If you want things done correctly, make sure you give us the resources to complete the task.

    full time benefits and co workers are nice

    low pay, long route, not sympathetic when sick, inconsistent and sudden changes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    cut route shorter or hire another driver. Get some competitive salary and notify people of changes before you need something
