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

    Pros

    Constant development and feedback from district manager level. Ability to grow within the company. Ability to make decisions in merchandising on your own, you truly run your 4 walls. Good PTO policy.

    Cons

    Heavy workload around back to school, difficulty hiring at a low rate for associates

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow us to hire a little higher, let us keep people longer. Need a training program.
