I worked at The Children's Place part-time for less than a year

Pros

did a lot of work for the department but also went on trips, had multiple training sessions (team building, public speaking, business writing, etc.), and an intern project to create a new product line that was then presented to jane elfers and other top execs. HR was extremely helpful throughout the whole experience. weekly meetings to make sure everyone was doing well. was never treated as the intern that just makes copies. actually did important work, sat in on meetings

Cons

no one really knows childrens place even offers and internship program but definitely look into it because its great experience

    I worked at The Children's Place full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The discount is pretty good, the stores are nice and usually easy to keep clean. They do a good job at customer service and put a lot of emphasis on making sure the customer is happy and the store is easy to shop. Room for growth up to the store manager level. Decent pay.

    Cons

    Corporate pushes really hard for employees to get credit apps. which can be really difficult. A lot of people don't want them.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, friendly customers, good discount.

    Cons

    I personally worked on stock. It was very demanding when you have to "beat the box". They told me we have to process 10 or more boxes an hour. Usually worked a 4 hour shift a day, so they wanted me to do 40 boxes in that 4-hour shift. I can't do 10 boxes an hour and attend the customers if they need me searching for a different size in the back. Its just ridiculous the time we have to process each box. They never really trained you properly and wanted you to know how everything was supposed to go (for example: is it hanged or folded, censored or not, on the floor or the back). By the time you learned everything a new season floor set and clothes came in, now you have to learn the new one too. On our store we have to many new hires and associates who were already there suffered major hour cuts. I was stock and I still had to help them with redoing the floor sets all through the night until 4-5 a.m. They also had set goals to sell so many place cards or such and such, very unrealistic goals to begin with. If they thought you were not promoting it at every customer coming in through the doors you were yelled at. It was always unorganized in the back, I tried to re-organize everything I could but the next day it would be messy again, so I quit trying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review everything to make it more easy going on your associates and have a good amount of workers and not just hire a ton of new people and then everybody suffers from low hours.
