    I worked at The Children's Place


    Very family friendly enviroment. I was hired as management. I loved the job, my coworkers and clientele.


    The only con is having to work retail hours which can't be avoided. Also the holiday season will run you ragged but that is to be expected.

    Positive Outlook
