    Pros

    Summer hours from Memorial Day through Labor Day, competitive salary, never a dull moment. Some people definitely care more than others, and work hard.

    Cons

    Long hours, poor work/life balance, unsupportive managers. High turnover means lack of clarity in roles, and too many new executives trying to put their own stamp on the business. Definite favoritism, and if you don't drink the KoolAid, you're out. Absolutely toxic environment, and they try to hide it behind shallow "culture building" events.

    Advice to Management

    Start focusing on retaining the good talent you already have. Stop bullying and stop playing favorites, because it's going to bite you in the butt. You don't fool anyone that works there.

    Pros

    The people are nice, you do get an employee discount which is really not really a perk because customers get about the same discount and you can not combine it with anything else.

    Cons

    They give no hours, very little pay,

    I worked at The Children's Place part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good discount if you have kids.

    Cons

    It's retail and just like every other clothing retail store.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe try to schedule people within their availability that they were hired with.

    Pros

    There are literally no good reasons to work here. It was a very negative experience. Awful company to work for.

    Cons

    The worst retail company I have ever worked for! Upper management is heartless. Their floor sets are a joke and so unorganized! Very "prying" company as well....never work for this company unless you want to be treated like crap!

    Advice to Management

    Things may be better if management actually cared about their employees. Did not feel part of the team at all.

    I worked at The Children's Place part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits like insurance, etc. Discounts on merchandise including clearance priced items

    Cons

    Long shift during holidays like black friday, stressful, you have to offer blue bags to every customer, chase them down if you don't catch them at the door to offer it too, sell people on the store credit card, make sure you are getting sales as there is a counter monitoring foot traffic, and asking if people need help until they get upset.
