Overall Reviews at The Children's Place

Education Coordinator | Royal Palm Beach, FL | Oct 2, 2019
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
ConsUpward mobility

Assistant Store Manager | Bronx, NY | Mar 12, 2019
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.
Pros30% discount
ConsNo hours, no training. Sometimes no break

Customer Service Associate / Cashier | Folsom, CA | Sep 8, 2018
Poor management
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.

Sales Leader | Coralville, IA | Aug 30, 2018
Worked fun-time hours, with none of the full-time benefits
I was able to quickly learn and work my way into a position of management, however once there, there wasn't much more to learn. Always short staffed to the point where I was working 40 hours a week, but still considered part-time. The best part of the job were the other sales associates and people working on the floor.
Prosgreat environment
Consnever received promised raise, no benefits, upper management did not care about individuals, very disorganized, short staffed

I worked in the econ department and in the retail | Fort Payne, AL | Sep 15, 2019
Absolutely horrible place to work
I worked there for almost two years with a full-time employee and always my numbers were in the top and they will find a way to fire the full-time employees only to hide and back as temp so they would not have to pay them benefits or give them the pay same pay amount management was horrible and the HR department would change the handbook to suit their needs they should really have corporate come down it and clean house at the children's place distribution center in fort Payne Alabama
ProsThe benefits and the salary
ConsThe hours very poor management and crooked HR department

Administrative Assistant | Greeley, CO | Sep 21, 2019
Very glad I had the opportunity to work there.
Gained a lot of knowledge of office responsibilities. Hardest part of this would be dealing with all the challenges of insurance companies. The office was a great place to work with all the staff and doctors.

Teacher's Aide | Rochester, MN | Aug 7, 2018
As a teachers aide
I helped with cleaning and watching the kids. I wasn't the biggest fan of how the boss expected me to do all the cleaning (mopping, cleaning the bathroom, vacuuming, taking care of a rabbit, cleaning the cooking materials, etc.) in an hour of time. The worst was that when I was physically ill she expected me to be able to clean it up perfectly.

Sales Associate | Aurora, IL | May 4, 2018
Interesting place to work
There was always room for improvement. However, it was such a high turnover rate that it was stressful at times. I enjoyed working with the manager of our store.
ProsEnjoyed the employee discount
Conslong hours and the pay wasn't the greatest.
