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

    Pros

    It allows you to progress. I was hired as a sales associate march of 2014, became a sales lead july of 2014, and now october 2014 I became an assistant store manager and im only 18. This company has allowed me to really show my skills and how I am able to contribute to the business im very lucky and fortunate to be in the position that I am.

    Cons

    Many sales associates leave early dont like the job nor hours they recieve but than again its only a part time job for sales associates.

    Pros

    There's always room to grow with this company. I was hired in for holiday help and I was promoted to Store Lead a couple months later.

    Cons

    It's retail so the pay isn't as good as I would like.

    Pros

    Management is open and honest

    Cons

    so little time to complete all tasks needed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more hours needed to train the right people for their jobs, we stress the right person for the right place at the right time but if they don't walk into the store as that person....we can't invest in them right away without sacrificing time away from our customers
