The Children's Place Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Children's Place Inc. is an American specialty retailer of children’s apparel and accessories. The company also markets apparel under the Children's Place, Place, Baby Place, and Gymboree brand names. As of October 31, 2015, the Company operated 955 stores in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico, an online store at, and had 90 international stores open and operated by its franchise partners in 12 countries.

According to a piece written By Stacy Jones for NJ a Controversial T-shirt was removed from Children's Place stores after a storm of complaints on social media back in August 2013. The sum of all those complaints about a controversial Children's Place girls T-shirt insinuating girls aren't good at math: was pulled from stores. With this tweet, the Secaucus-based company announced its intentions and apologized to customers: The shirts say "My best subjects" on top and have checked in boxes next to shopping, music, and dancing. A box next to math, at the bottom of the list, is blank and underneath it says, "Well, nobody's perfect." The controversy began when a Facebook user, whose profile identifies the person as Rebecca Kenton from Philadelphia, posted a photo on The Children's Place Facebook page with this message: "NOT cute, Children's Place. This is not 1953. Stop making it fashionable for girls to be dumb. Parents are sick of this garbage."

Supervisor (Former Employee) says

"The company expects miracles with a ridiculous budget. A typical day starts off with almost no staff. Too many conference calls that pull you from your job. Very old school way of running a company. noneToo many"

Sales Associate (Former Employee) says

"So many jobs out there this shouldn’t be an option unless you are desperate. You make your sick hours but never can use them, also sometimes a three hour shift ? Not even worth driving there AssociatesManager"

Store Manager (Former Employee) says

"No work/life balance. No clear direction from DM. Cookie cutter policies and procedures that not even HR follows. No support at all. Would actually change my hours in the system do it wouldn’t show how many hours I was working.NoneAll aspects of the job."

Sales Manager (Former Employee) says

"The store manager at the Florence location is one of the most unprofessional people I habe ever worked with. She only gave hoirs to the employees she befriended no matter their work ethic or capability. She always came in hours late or not at all leaving one peraon to man the entire store alone which was against protocol due to high foot traffic and theft. If you love working with customers this is a good fit.Pay and managment make it not worth it."

Lead Sales Associate (Former Employee) says

"It sucks. Literally. Poor management. Unprofessional as heck! Everyone will talk about you and belittle you. There’s no sense of trust or encouragement from the people who work there. Unorganized. Just a mess.FlexibilityA lot"

Sales Associate (Former Employee) says

"Manager is the worst manager I ever had in my life. She’ll yell at you in front of customers. She needs to learn how to talk to her employees. You’ll only get one day of work a week. Don’t expect to get a lot of hours unless you get a lot of credit cards"

Store Manager (Former Employee) says

"This was the most horrible company I have ever worked for. So unprofessional and just disrespectful to it’s employees. If you have any self respect for yourself please don’t work here. District Manager was a huge joke and very cut throat as so is your surrounding stores.NothingEverything"

Sales Associate (Current Employee) says

"If you want/need a job at and need extra money don't work here. It is a very messy environment. It's all women and all the do is talk about you. Even the manager is rude and very disrespectful."

Sales Associate (Part-time) says

"This was the WORST place that I have ever worked. Nepotism is alive and well at the Morrow location. I would never recommend this place to anyone nor would I ever work here again. The place was a CIRCUS. I felt like I was in the twilight zone.."

District Manager (Former Employee) says

"Although there are a few great people that work for this organization I would not recommend this as a great place to work. In the five years that I spent here there was never any time spent on listening to the field. It is very much a do as I say organization."

Sales Associate (Former Employee) says

"if you would like to fold the same table of clothes for the whole shift this is a great job for you also if you would like to deal with Dinosaur computers then this will also be the job for you with unfair hours and poor employee treatment"

Assistant Manager (Current Employee) says

"I had my hr changed so check would be less I had nobody show up so worked 13 hr shift by myself. I do not recommend this place for employment they don’t promote and don’t give raises and at my location Arden fair Sacramento there very racist."

Teacher (Former Employee) says

"Workers talk about each other negatively , the higher ups are so disrespectful and immature. Very uncomfortable place to work at! The pay is way to low for what is expected and the environment is uncomfortable .juncomfortable .Beautiful children and familiesUncomfortable work environment"

Picker (Former Employee) says

"The leads on night shift forget they aren't cops anymore and treat the staff like prisoners. The warehouse isn't a prison and you aren't a cop so stop acting like it. The schedule sucks. Its either feast or famine. Raises are few and far between and they will hire just about anyone. Just don't. Nothing you do will ever be good enough and the supervisor upstairs on night shift will call you names.Nothing.Every single thing."

Sales Associate (Former Employee) says

"When I first started at The Children's Place, the Manager was transferring locations leaving the Assistant Manager (AM) in charge. The AM (I hope she still isn't there) was one of the worst people I've ever had to deal with. I was a full-time university student with limited availability but still worked 3-4 times a week. Unfortunately, a lot of my availability was night time, and the AM would knowingly schedule myself to close with her for a ride home.. which by the way I never wanted to offer but felt obligated to do as I wanted hours. She lived about 20 mins out of the way, and she would purposely count the tills slow so she would miss her bus. In about 3 months, I probably drove her home 10 times. Now, when you weren't dealing with customers, you were expected to keep busy. One Saturday, I was scheduled on cash, no one was there so I decided to start folding/organizing. The AM very loudly and rudely yelled at me over the headset, in front of a staff size of maybe 8-10, belittling me and calling me inappropriate names. When I discussed this with other staff, apparently I wasn't the only one having issues. We then all brought this to the attention of the DM who had a discussion with the AM and told us that if this happens again, report it. Soon after I left without warning or notice, anywhere would be better than that store at that location."

Sales Associate (Former Employee) says

"Amount of hours given were terrible. Weeks where I couldn't work because the wasn't enough hours. Only was able to work 4 hours throughout the biweekly pay period."

Sales Associate/Lead (Former Employee) says

"I worked here as a part time-full time lead and my days always started and ended in total chaos. The company asks you to do one thing then the next day asks you to do something COMPLETELY different. Keep in mind they don't give you enough hours to work before or after hours so you are moving the ENTIRE store while you have customers walking around. They also want you to be able to shove as much product out on the floor as you can, even if that means completely ignoring any ADA requirements! Don't forget that they want you to rearrange the entire store (this includes shelves and displays), process shipment, attend to customers, sell credit cards, complete customer online orders, etc -- all with only 2 employees in the store at a time. AWFUL COMPANY! DO NOT DO IT."

Associate Sales (Former Employee) says

"If you are looking for a job that is stable, enjoyable to go to or respect for the work you do, this job is not for you. The pay is not equal to the amount of work they expect from you. No matter how long you are there or how hard you work, there is no pay raises. There are no hours for work so if you only want 4 to 12 hours a week this might be good for you."

Store Manager (Former Employee) says

"Store manager Are not given the tool proper tools to complete the task of running and Profitable store! Store managers for this company are completely overworked and under paid! There is no such thing as a work life balance for a store manager"

Sales Lead (Former Employee) says

"Horrible district manager, and to top it off my last manage decided to start cutting my hours for no reason and i know i was a pretty good worker, which there was no reason for her to do that. They do NOT care for their employees only if they make day i was there sales lead so i got the good scoop from their company. DO NOT WORK HERE!"

Employee says

"A complete failed organization IT leadership and HR Hyderabad made it horrible place of working. Higher management is sleeping and supports few employees in IT leadership who are responsible to make TCP a horrible / worst place. - A third class organization HR Hyderabad, Gurgaon is full of incapable people. - HR Team sitting in Hyderabad, Gurgaon are of no use and having no basic skills / knowledge. - They demand money from employees a big big shame. - Worst HR, admin team at Hyderabad / Gurgaon ever seen in anyone's life. - Basically there is no HR. It's group of hobo, recruited from local tea shop. - To hide IT leadership and HR failure they lay off innocent employees with no capability to provide any justification Don't higher employees and get the work done from 2-3 IT leadership people sitting in NJ office Leadership must feel proud while working with incapable team Your failure on higher management level has brought TCP shares on the same lowest level the way you've created culture / environment in the organization. You've been completely failed your IT leadership is worst in the world and HR / admin Hyderabad is a big big joke!!"

Jessica Phoenix says

"I ordered my son 3 pairs of jeans for school. My package arrived today and it was 2 shirts size 7/8 that I didn't order and wouldn't even fit him and a pair of size 14 sweatpants that I didn't order. I will never shop at this place again....what a joke!!!!"

Susan Fusaro says

"I ordered $80 worth of PJs during the pandemic. As soon as I got one of the PJs I knew that they would be too small for my son. I called customer service right away for a return label and was told not to send back the return but wait for stores to open. I live in NY and stores were not opening right away. In August I went to the mall and was told their was an expiration on the return August 1st. I called customer service again to complain why was I told to wait for stores to open!! I also emailed NOT ONE WORD BACK. If children's place and Gymboree go out of business it is because of their bad customer service and return policy!!"

customer says

"I never received my full order. I called customer service number and spoke to someone and thought i had it straightened out then i received 2 of the same items. Tried calling customer service several times after that and couldn't get a person to speak to. I will never shop online at Childrens Place ever again!!! Very disappointed ."
