Overall Reviews at The Children's Place
Decent Retail Gig
It was a decent experience working at the Children's Place. This was my first retail gig and everyone at the store treated me with respect and I greatly appreciated the service they gave me.
Comprehensive LifeSkills Program preparing youth to age-out of foster care
The Children's Place at HomeSafe is a strategic therapeutic group home devoted to serving foster youth traumatized by neglect, mental, physical and sexual abuse. As a result of the trauma, the residents experience a great deal of mental health/behavioral issues. I love the multidisciplinary approach to serving/treating our clientele. Everyone passionately participates as a team member. There is a genuine care for both the residents of our programs and the staff.
ProsTeam effort and passion for youth
Management here is really toxic
The Children’s place located at Los Angeles Ca Citedal is horrible. Management there mixes personal and work environment together. Every day there was always some type of drama going on. They also are very selfish people, if it doesn’t be if it them in anyway they will NOT help you but make excuses, but if you’re one of their favorites then they will change the schedule just to make sure that person has the day off. I had something personal going on and I was NOT comfortable telling them my personal life because they don’t keep it to themselves .Managers there have their favorite people there and they don’t even bother hiding it. I wasn’t given the amount of hours I deserved. They always expect Mprccs and I would get them for them. One manger promised me more hours if I got mprccs but did I get more hours?, no I didn’t. I actually got less! Let’s just say every pay check was only 300 hundred. What can a SINGLE mom of two buy with 300!! While the other girls there who some didn’t even have kids would get 16 + hours every week! Really disappointed in this location and management. Never will I ever work in another’s Children’s place again and if people ask how was it I’m going to not sugar coat it. And tell them my experience.

Overall when I began it was 2 brands, Disney and TCP. Communication was somewhat unclear however, CEO believed and appreciated his people. Turnover was relatively high, however internal professional development was your key to success. Needed to be more Customer Engaged, which was an opportunity at the time.
ConsLack of Customer Engagement-Focus
I learned the basics of working in a retail company. I feel as though there was a lot work to get done in little time. The stress of the work being done is not work your time. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the amount of items in the store. Most of the time in the store I worked at, things or people were not organize. It was not a bad experience but I would not recommend someone to work there.

Too demanding. No resources, no help. not enough staff. Pay is lousy!!
This company only cares about money and their rude customers. As far as workers/ managers etc they will work you to the bone! There is no job security. No proper training, no hours not enough staff. For a place focused on moms and family, they treat there workers like garbage. Under appreciated under paid under staffed. I worked at two different locations and I left both locations for the exact same reason. No room for growth. They don’t like to promote from within, they always look elsewhere. Bring outsiders in with no knowledge of the company. They don’t train them. It was very sad to see how much they took advantage of hardworking people. Very disappointed. I would never go back. I think the company needs to reevaluate how they run things, how they pay and how they treat their employees.
ConsNo hours, no training. Sometimes no break
I open the store with another associate, Make sure store was clean and organized. Count registers, Greet customers, and help them find what they needed, checked them out at register,and stock store.
Every one is nice and helpful. The hardest part of the job was organizing store. The most enjoyable part was meeting new people everyday.
ProsGreat discount on clothes.

Hours are inconsistent and holidays are not taken seriously. Store is unorganized in management and outlook. Unfriendly workers and no sense of collaboration or need to make the store its best.

Excellent working environment and good management. Good growth and job security. I Recomend this company. People with honest and Dedicated working can do good here.
Un travail parfait pour l’été
C’était un bon travail pour l’été, il était proche de mon domicile et les personnes qui y travaillaient étaient très chaleureuses. Il y avait beaucoup de tâches à faire en une seule journée, mais avec toute l’organisation ça se faisait rapidement .
