    Current Employee - Sales Lead in Austin, TX (US)

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

    Pros

    Very flexible, many opportunities grow, great management ( or maybe I've just been lucky)

    Cons

    Not many hours for a sales associate and the pay is not the best. Strive to move up and this will change. Corporate tends demand too much and it doesn't take much consideration in other factors a store faces when they set tight deadlines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For management store level keep doing what you are doing. For management at the corporate level, take into inconsideration what a store will face daily when setting high expectations to meet at specific deadlines and understand you have very passionate people so harness that.

    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.
