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

    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.

    Former Employee - Sales Associate in San Francisco, CA (US)

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

    Pros

    co-workers can be friendly, 30% employee discount on all merchandise, get to interact with all sorts of different people

    Cons

    ASM, SSM, and LEAD management are VERY clique-like -- talk negatively about customers over the earpiece, talk negatively about co-workers off the clock, hours are given based on manager's favoritism in the store. Little to NO hours, however management is VERY, VERY big on calling people in "last-minute" to fix issues that should've been taken care of long ago. Poor planning, poor execution, and the only way you'll find satisfaction at this job is if you are still in high school looking to make extra "pocket change".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers need to pay more attention to who they are promoting rather than "floor sets." Absolutely NO room for growth or improvement because the MANAGERS are taking all the hours.
