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

Pros

30% discount on cute kids clothes.

Cons

You get no support from the company. You are not given tools to help you succeed. The work load is very unrealistic. There is so much pressure to get so much done that you have nothing but stress. There is never any appreciation for anything achieved. There is never any payroll hours to get hugefloorsets done. Every week you have tons of shipment, price changes, and you get in trouble when it does not get done but you don't have the hours to do it. Customers are awful and corporate is not much better.

    Pros

    Great discount and product offered in benefits.

    Cons

    No accountability within district and no follow-through with supervisors. Processing shipment and replenishment will always outweigh any customer service attributes.

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with my Co-workers/Direct Team Members.

    Cons

    Too many to name. Here are a few examples - Lack of systems, unrealistic workload, 60-70 hour work weeks expected, no direction or strategy, a growth strategy based on cost only, lack of culture - honestly no culture at all, a horrific CEO & leadership (I have trouble even referring or calling them a leadership) team, management by fear and on and on it goes... I have never worked at a company where I have seen so much turnover at all levels - Upper Management - Executive, VP, Director and Worker Bee levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is to the Board - reevaluate your CEO and leadership (lack there of) team. There is a ton of potential at TCP, but it will never be realized with the current team in place.
