    Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Chicago, IL (US)

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at The Children's Place.

    Interview Details

    I applied in September and did not get an interview until October. It was a group interview with 6 people. Some questions we went in a circle to answer and there were some where it was a free for all, answer or don't if you don't want to. In all it was a good experience, the managers were nice as well.
