  1. I was in your store in Ridgeland , Ms today. I found a couple of items for my little boy and got in line to purchase them. I had my credit card and $100.00 bill instead of using my card I decided to use cash. The young girl at the counter called the manager to get change for the bill he told me that he wouldn't let me purchase the items with my MONEY because he wouldn't break the $100.00 bill for my $8.00 purchase. I could understand this if it was at 9 a.m. in the morning this was after lunch and the store had been opened for hours. I purchased the items. I will not shop in your store ever again because it seems your managers don't like dealing with CASH.

    1. Ok there just might not have been enough cash in the til to break it. And why on earth are you going to a retail store to break a 100 on something not even a tenth of the amount! We have a limited amount of cash in the store and someone else might have cleaned them out of most of their cash pulling something similar.

      And mind you this is coming from a FORMER employee who hated working for the company.

  2. I can say that not all managers for this company are alike. Majority of them are a bit snazzy. It's unprofessional and very unethical to turn away business. The manager didn't report to the security that the bill may be fraudulent. The manager could have simply stated they didn't have change and apologized if that was the case. I don't know about that particular location but I do know that the managers are quite difficult to deal with when it comes to professional character. I am an employee for this company and I am looking to transfer due to the ethics at the location in which I work. I do hope you visit the store again soon. The quality of the clothing and styles are great. I look at the Children's place as an affordable J.Crew for kids. I absolutely love them even though I dislike the management. I simply suggest that they hold a training session to restore the professionalism of the staff to help improve the stores success for more better business.

  3. With everything going on today, Children's Place decides to put in place a policy to make things even more difficult. I bought 3 pairs of slack and because they are Jeggings they are a little harder to size. I happen to be visiting my daughter in Maryland and evidentially bought them at a retail store. At the sales persons suggestion, instead of buying the size my child wears, size 8, I bought size 10. She still can't get in them. I went to my Children's Place at Potomac Mill, an outlet, where I was told they couldn't EXCHANGE for the EXACT same items because I purchased them at a retail store and Potomac Mills is an outlet store. After I waste, gas, time, and energy finding another retail store to RETURN there items (NOT EXCHANGE), I will never show Children's Place again, ever.

    3. I swear this sounds like the store in Wheaton, MD. A co-worker was put on final notice because she clocked out at 12:30am because she had to get public transportation, this after working her assigned shift of 5pm-10pm. Once she left the manager talked so bad about her and reported her to the other manager the next day which led to her being put on final notice. I am out of here as soon as I find a new job.

    4. It sounds like the store in Nanaimo, BC, Canada as well!! Brutal! My manager actually terminated me while I was coming back from maternity leave, told the DM that I had quit and processed termination paperwork in the course of a day or two. All because I asked if it was possible to work every sunday and monday and only work 2/4 saturdays a month??!?!?! I did so much for this company (covering as the store manager with no compensation for 4 months while the Manager went on medical leave) and again 6 weeks after I had my son because they desperately needed coverage, I worked 12 hrs/week and I got nothing! Watch out if you work there and steer clear if you don't!

    5. I am an employee at The Children's Place in Alameda, Ca & we are under a new Store manager who obviously needs more training. I have been apart of this company for a year & a half and have never been treated so unfairly & in addition to that, I'm 9 months pregnant. Ever since she started, she's hired more people (her friends) & has phased out the ones who were there before she came for her own personal reasons. She has cut my hours & have me multiple reasons why yet, the hours clearly are distributed to the new employees. Then when I decided to talk to my District manager about these issues, she then have me a write while I was at home, and stated that I was giving poor performance. I've never received a verbal warning prior to this "write up" from her or any of the managers. The sales leads have told me that they had to work OFF the clock serveral occasions & dress codes are being violated. This is the worst retail experience I've encountered & I do NOT plan on going back.

    6. Hey I work at TCP SEDC. I know all of y'all's problems because we get treated the same. The biggest problem is the show major favortism between the shifts. Day will kill there selfs just so night can get paid a dollar more then day just to go home and enjoy there family time. Me if they offer us to go I more then likely will stay but there is people who love to go home and be with there families or take care of other business. The supervisors don't care what you have to say and HR don't care either because if you go complain to HR they always act like they don't care and send you on you way. I recommend no body go work at TCP SEDC.

  5. This Store should receive NO stars! I am a new mom, excited to be shopping for my little baby boy (8 Months now). I got a few items from this store from one of my showers and we were impressed with them, so I decided to start shopping here! This has now been my 3rd or 4th time entering this store at Stoneridge Mall and every single time, I want to run out screaming! The place is a joke! Where is the District Manager? Who is it? I'd like to have a chat with them! I have been a store manager for retail for the past 7 years. The store is SUCH a mess... what are these employees doing? Besides not organizing, not welcoming you into the store, not asking you if you need help, staring, ignoring, the list goes on and on. When you do find something and go to check out there is ZERO eye contact. Besides the extreme LACK of customer service, the selection at this store is also lacking. Why is there a 3 to 1 ratio of girls clothes to boy clothes? I have a little boy and when I'm in this store, I feel so bad for him that there are HARDLY any choices... you go over to the girl side and there is a plethora of things! Also they never have your size. We like the "Stretchies" so much, but always seem to "miss" the shipments for new ones... because every time I go in there are no choices... tons of girls mind you though... I'll be contacting the district manager for sure... probably even corporate so they can know what's going on.

    1. The girls department has a bigger selection because of dresses, skirts, hair bands, etc. You could shop on line that is what I do for my 2 yr old son when I can't find his size.

  7. I agree with you all the Assistant manager are very unprofessional also. There is a Store in the Bronx in parkchester, the assistant manager his name is Mike and he is HORRIBLE. I was in shopping and heard how he was talking to the young ladies that was working, he was very unprofessional when speaking to the ladies. If you have a problem with your worker you are suppose to pull them to aside and talk to them. We as shoppers dont' need to know what is going on. Also if you want respect you have to give respect. I'm going to REPORT him to the corporate office unprofessional.

  8. I like the retail store and the outlet. I live within 25 miles of 2 retail stores and one outlet. Every time I visit these stores someone politely greets me I always get asked if I need help and the stores are always stocked and organized. Check out is never a problem everyone has been great and the stores are in good shape.

  9. Hah....I just called corporate, after dealing with customer service and being told that they could do nothing for me to help with my issue, and corporate was no help either. Its very very unfortunate because I predict in 3-5 yrs, they will either get brought out or they will go out of business compeletly. I honestly don't believe they have much life left in them. My husband & I are expecting & we have a 3yo. We have decided to not shop here anymore because I was tricked into spending more money to get place cash at a retail store & told I could use it at the outlet, n after 2 visits to 2 diffrent stores more than 40mins from my house, told that the outlet versus the retail stores are two totally diffrent stores. Also that I could not use the place cash at the outlets. We have always shopped Children's Place as a first choice for clothes for our kids, & clothes as gifts for our friends kids. I am taking my business elsewhere....Pumpkin Patch, Jack & Jill & Gap/Old Navy are my first choices. My husbands was laughing because the corporate tried to offer me some % off coupons for future purchases (which can be found online for free) & I told her no thank you....My hisband laughed because she was trying to offer % off but he already knew, that unless it was a gift card, I would never step foot into another Children's Place Store (Outlet nor Retail) again to even use the little % off coupon corporate tried to offer me. Its pretty sad that that was the best Elsie from corporate could do.

    5. This happened to me as well. I received clothes too big for my daughters birthday. I called the store first and spoke with the manager and was informed I could exchange the clothes for a different size even though I didn't have the receipt. I went in store and made sure the cashier knew that I was exchanging the clothes for the exact same ones in a different size but I didn't have the receipt. I was declined and the cashier told me I would have to call the 800 number on the declined receipt. I was told they declined my return because it was the stores policy to not accept returns without a receipt even though I was told by two different employees that they would exchange. Also, I am now on a 180 day period where I cannot return anything else to the store because of this attempt to do so without my receipt. I returned to the store and the manager told me there was nothing he could do for me, they will not be able to accept my exchange. I have called the district manager but have not received a call back. So much for customer service. That is the last time I will ever enter that store.

    6. As a former employee I can tell you that no receipt returns are auto declined after you hit a certain dollar amount. I believe it's $60.

      And so far as not accepting retail product at outlet stores, our inventory is for our OUTLET product, we have different prices and we don't stock the same things it sucks but the return policy is on the back of every single receipt.

    7. This just happened to me today the total amount was 59.00 this is crazy all I want is a size that will fit my daughter she for this clothes for her birthday I try to do my return in West Covina Ca the guy was rude and I thought maybe because my id so I brought my best friend who's never shop there and has no kids and they did it to her too Im very upset and I will never shop in this stores and I will take it to BBB.

    8. current employee here...
      the return policy sucks really bad, but got better when my store got rid of the TRE system. (we no longer scan IDs or have to use a 3rd party company) i really hope this gets implemented by other stores as well! by the way, the return limit on the TRE system is 50 dollars max.

  16. I was in the Oceanside NY store just before christmas to help replace clothes my grandbaby lost due to hurricane sandy. I had about $100.of items @ the register and then Purchased a $100. gift card.There was a promotion going on for every $50, you spent you would get $10 to spend after the hoildays. so I figured GREAT we lost everything,another $40. will really help.(especially when we literally had nothing)After I paid I asked for the promotion, the cashier without hesitation said "it was only while supplies lasted.I told her "no, thats not what it say's can I please see the mgr.The manager came over and again w/o hesitation said what the cashier did.Again I informed her it did not say that.She then said well were out of the coupons, I said were not talking a small amount here, can I have a gift card? She said no. I said well then I want a refund of all the things including the gift card I purchased, I don't appreciate being lied to , if you would have told me from the beginning I probably would have accepted that.I asked for corporates phone # I called told them I dont appreciate being lied to,wondered how many others walked away with out the extra "coupon" and told them I would never shop at another Childrens Place again. Within moments the general Mgr. for the area called me, I told her again, what bothered me most was being lied to and that I would never go back, not to mention that I voided the $200.+ sale. She ws very apologetic, as I expected her to be, and offered to send me the coupons.I said ok.WELL GOOD THING I DIDNT HOLD MY BREATH WAITING FOR THEM!
    Anyway, their loss...as a Hurricane sandy survivor,& having to replace everything we owned right down to a toothbrush,Im sorry that obviously my $$ was not good enough for them,and they really dont care about the customer..I WILL NEVER SHOP IN A CHILDRENS PLACE STORE EVER AGAIN Joanne Rea,LONGBEACH NY

  20. I am writing this letter as a complaint against your Bowie, MD store #1274 and the manager Ellen Dennis, along with Brian who is the supervisor in your customer service center. I must say that I have never been treated this poorly by any employee of a retail store before. The level of customer service that these two provided was a complete reflection of unconcern, unprofessionalism and irresponsibility on behalf of The Children’s Place.
    On 1/28/2013 I visited your store #1274 to return items that I did not have a receipt for. I was told that the items were not in store. I asked for a gift card so that I could purchase them online. The associate said that she was issuing me a gift card. I asked her about three times to be sure that the card could be used on-line and each time she said yes it could be.
    The following day I go online to place my order to find out that my card could not be used online. I then called store #1274 to speak with the manager Ellen Dennis who informed me that I had a merchandise credit and not a gift card. I explained the situation to her and her comment was “the salesperson did nothing wrong, why don’t you just find something in the store”
    I then called your customer service center and spoke with Brian who was the supervisor. I pleaded with Brian for a resolution that could work so that I could quickly get my items. He said that all he could do was devalue my merchandise credit and mail me a gift card that could be used online but that was a 6 week process. I asked could they just ship the items that I wanted to a store and I would pay for them when they arrived he told me no. Brian who refused to give me a last name said that he was 100% sure that the only thing he could do was to issue a gift card that would take 6 weeks and that he was 100% sure that if I spoke with corporate or even the owner of The Children’s Place that would be the only option.
    I was punished for a mistake that an employee of The Children’s Place made. I am sure that there could have been another option to resolving this matter but everyone that I spoke with had this careless attitude as if “ oh well yea we made a mistake and gave out wrong information but it’s not important enough that we resolve it to satisfaction”.
    It would be my suggestion that you all provide your employees with better customer service training and look into changing your return policy.
    This situation has changed my thoughts on this store and I have no plans of patronizing this store for any of my childrens clothing again. I will be taking my hard earned money where it is appreciated and certainly not at The Children’s Place where you could care less about your customers.

  21. I was an employee at children's place for almost a month and had to quit, most disrespectful manager i've ever had, was not understanding about a prior appointment i had with my daughter, the only hours you would get were "call ins" unless you were friends with her then you would get any where for 20-40 hrs. a week. And best part... They NEVER sent me a paycheck for the few hours i did work! Still after 3 called to the corporate office and 2 to HR. I still have no check!! I will never shop this Children's place store in MICHIGAN again let alone work for one...what a joke!

  22. I work at a DC for the children's place. The stores have nothing on the DC. Unprofessional Supervisors that yell, threaten and sometimes cuss at their employee. Employees (that are friends with their supervisors) that gets all the holidays off and more time off without any disciplinary actions. We are told it is not a production job and we are not paid production BUT we have to get "our numbers" are we are subjected to ridicule. Forget about trying to talk to HR they never have time to see you are hear your complaints. There are no other jobs are I would have left three threats ago!!!

  25. They only promote based on favoritism; not skill, not experience, nor seniority. This is a VERY unprofessional company to work for. An ASM from store "A" was promoted to SM of store "B" after being with the company for 2 weeks, instead of store "B's" ASM who has 6 years experience! Not to mention they had ASM of store "B" TRAIN the new SM!!! That is like a slap in the face! I am disgusted with the way this company is run!

    1. The same in my store. The manager was training a new employee to be a lead after 2 wks of working there and then snatched it back after the employee had to get off work two hours after the shift ended. Manager was MAD because my co-worker wouldn't continue to work past the determined shift so Joe/Wendy are looking for any reason to fire her. Seems her spunk has left her. Wish I could stand up for her. Sad.

  26. This company is a joke to work for! After being hired last year as one of the Assistant Managers. I found out I was expecting about 2 1/2 months in. Of course that wasn't intentional but nonetheless it happened. My manager then found out she needed to go on medical leave for what was supposed to be 8 weeks which meant that she was leaving me in charge of the store, scheduling, christmas and inventory evne though the other Assistant Manager had been there for 4 years. Now, I am not complaining that I was left in charge (because I have managed stores ten times the size) however when I repeatedly asked whether I would be compensated for stepping into the Manager role, I was told yes by my DM. HAHAHAHA was that ever a joke. When push came to shove and the 8 week medical leave had turned into just over 4 months, the DM said that there would be no retroactive pay. I pleaded my case to the DM to no avail....she did nothing. By that point, I had worked longer in the Store Manager role than assistant but that meant nothing. We were doing well in sales, Inventory went amazing with awesome shrink #'s, best store morale and the DM even said it hadn't looked better but that meant nothing!!!! She gave me my annual review and said although they couldn't compensate me for being manager that she was going to give me a one time increase as well as the measly annual increase....all of which added up to just over 30 cents/hour difference!! Thanks alot TCP!!
    That isn't even the best of it!! Six weeks after having my son, the DM phoned me and asked whether I would be open to working a couple short shifts a week to cover off the store because the Store Manager was taking another medical leave (completely unrelated to the first!) I value the employees I worked with and felt for them so I agreed. I knew the other Assistant Manager was doing alot of work and wanted to help. So for almost 3 months I worked 12 hours a week and didn't even get a thank you from the store manager when she came back. This brings me to now....
    I was about to come back from maternity leave and being that my husband also works retail, I phoned the DM and asked her if I could work out a more consistent schedule to correlate with my husband's. In a word I was told no! I wasn't asking for weekend's off or no nights....I was asking to work every sunday, monday and work two saturdays a month (Managers only get one weekend off a month though which is what I was told!) Even though i brought up how much I had done for the company, they didn't care! I called the store manager a couple of days later to talk to her and explain my frustrations and she basically said the same thing. When I came in on saturday to talk to the manager, she was conveniently off (I wonder if it was her weekend off?) and left her a note about the day I was coming back. On monday she finally phoned me and said that she was confused because I had quit when I was talking to her on the phone. I repeatedly told her that no I didn't....I would actually have to say the words, I quit and I didn't. She took it upon herself to phone the DM, tell her I quit and processed the paperwork. I then called the DM....of course she now has forgotten all that I did with no compensation and basically said, ya what to me on the phone. She said that I was hostile and I asked her, wouldn't you be if you were unknowlingly terminated??? Anyway, I caution anyone that shops there and or works there....don't anymore. I am sure there are some amazing people that work for the company...but lets not be fooled those are the part timers that put in blood, sweat and tears and get nothing in return! I did just officially resign as I felt I had no other choice. After much fighting I was re-instated and when I received my schedule I only had 30 hours (which is fine but in the whole time I worked there, I always worked 40 hrs/wk) I feel as though I was constructively dismissed which the company will pay for!!!!!

  27. The Children's Place in Elk Grove, California is absolutely horrible. Jamie the store manager has some nerve acting like she actually gets things done but doesn't. I just wish we could get total different management. Oh and Correen the Regional Store manager aka Jamie her best friend let's her get away with everything.I bet you she gets paid for hours she don't really work but of course Correen is there to cover for her. If I were over the company I would like to know if I was being ripped of paying for hours that are not even being worked. I mean they have good associates but the store manager is a joke.

  29. These stories make me laugh. I thought my store (southern park mall boardman ohio #814) was the only one with horrible management. I guess its company wide for the childrens place. Kim fron #814 is very rude and disrespectful to not only customers but employees as well. If u ask me she doesnt seem like "store management material" the mall just put in a new store "crazy 8" and i think im taking my business there even though they are a little more expensive their manager is so much nicer and friendlier.

They are always on their cellphones or in the backroom, no one is ever around to help me put outfits together for my boys. So i traveled out to southern park mall and was also treated like crap there, so i started going out to grove city outlet store in pa but for some reason the outlet is more expensive, wtf! Shouldnt they be cheaper?! Really not happy with the service this company offers, i will be shopping at justice old navy gymboree and crazy 8 from now on, i didnt even mention how badly my online order was messed up! Very unprofessional!

  31. I use to work for TCP, but was fed up after a while. This company wants things done in a hurry. Then they should come do it. Its all about conversion now. It was stressful having only a manager and an associate closing Saturday and Sunday. Yeah ok you can't customer service everyone and ring up at the same time. Its not fair they want the store clean 100 % and by out by close 9:30 yeah ok. The President or the CEO should come to any TCP and work as an associate to see what they go thru. You want things done give more hours. You want conversion to be higher Give More Hours. Then customers will be converted. Can't say they don't have money when they have stores remodeled or open new ones. What a freaking joke. Hire people to work after the store closes to clean. Glad I don't work for the companies no more. Connecticut stores need more hours. And FYI Donna Rivera from the Buckland store has a nasty attitude. And Fairfield store 1703 like to make a lot of mistakes do a lot of price overrides and like to send their customers to other stores to do returns. Total crap!!!!

Working on getting my daughter out of their before I hurt somebody. Could file harassment charges.It will happen one day, because they don't care about the company.

  33. I called the store at Coquitlam, BC in Canada and asked to speak to the assistant manager because she is a friend of mine. I call the store quite frequently because my sister has a 5-month old baby girl so I call to speak to my friend who is part of the management team in that store to help me look for certain things for me to purchase. The girl who answered the phone is named "Carolina" and she knows who I am and is apparently annoyed at my frequent phone calls and one day she told me off when I had asked to speak with my friend, the assistant manager. She was extremely rude and said, "Can you stop calling the store? She (my friend) is working right now and she doesn't have time to take personal calls." I had asked if she was busy and she replied that she was. So I had asked her to leave a message for me and ask my friend to call me back. She quickly strikes me down and rudely replies, "NO!" So I just had a huge WTF moment right there. Regardless of my relationship with an employee of a store and my frequent phone calls, is this how a paying customer is to be treated? I urge you to look into this store's employees, Children's Place. Again, I called to make attempt to purchase something specific I wanted a friend to look for and I was told off by an employee. This store is the one in Coquitlam, BC in Canada.

  34. Today I went to children's place to return seven pairs of shorts that are too small for my daughter. The sales associate/cashier was very polite. However, my return was declined. I did not have the receipt but did not think this would be a problem. I was given a slip and told I could call the number for an explanation. It was useless as the woman on the other end of the phone said she did not know the reason for the decline. I asked what could I do and at first she said nothing. Then I was told that I could return the items in 180 days. Imagine that. I asked to speak to her supervisor. Her response to me was that her phone system doesn't work like that and the supervisor would have to call me back within 48 hours. I asked for cooperate number and she said she didn't have it to give me. What is the purpose of the return center if they cannot provide the information needed by the customers. I hung up with her. I called back and explained the situation to another representative. She asked if I would like a copy of my return history and said she would forward one immediately.
    Upon returning home I looked up the corporate number and called it. A lady answered the phone and proceeded to take my information. While doing so I began to mysteriously experience lots of static on the phone and could no longer hear her. I called right back and was put on hold for over a half an hour when I had gotten through immediately the first call. I am figuring out my next step as I type, wait for a call from the supervisor and a copy of my returns. The Children's Place can't possibly think it is ok to treat their customers in such a negative way and without a proper explanation.

  38. I am completely THROUGH with the Children's Place. I will never shop there again. I liked buying from them particularly because the pants had the adjustable waist band inside and my son grows exponentially. I bought over $100.00 worth of merchandise a few weeks ago and received $40.00 in City Place Cash to redeem starting on the 10th of this month. I place an order for over $400.00 and have it rush shipped. I get an email a few days later saying that they cancelled the order... HOWEVER, if you look at my bank account you can see the pending transaction. I call them to find out what the problem is and they "don't know" and have to call another Department to find out. After waiting for over 15 minutes on hold the lady comes back on to tell me that I should be receiving an email with an explanation. When I didn't hear back I called and asked them if they would be sending me new coupon codes for the city cash that I used. The lady puts me on hold again..this time only about five minutes, comes back on and says that it will be sent via email. I wanted to get the clothes for my son so I reentered the order. I figured by the time I waited around for them to give me the BOGUS reason as to why they had cancelled the initial order all the clothes I wanted to get for my son would be sold out. I go through the trouble of reentering everything all over again... enter the codes that they emailed me and only ONE of them works. I want to call back but at this point I'm tired of wasting my time on hold with a company that has NO CUSTOMER SERVICE and cancels orders with no explanation.

  40. Children's Place has the worse customer service! Whatever happened to "pleasing the customers". Just was on the phone for 45 minutes trying to get credit for a shipping charge! "JoyfullyHis" posting on September 12 is spot on about the absolutely inadequate customer service!

    Children's Place, I hope you take the time to read this!

    1. I just experienced the same exact thing. they fought me tooth and nail on reversing a $15 express shipping charge because "it was not their fault that ups had a delay" so now that becomes my problem? What ever happened to common sense? I thought it was going to be a simple call not an ordeal. it also doesn't help that both employees I spoke to had poor attitudes. I cant do business with a company that is unreasonable and/or does not value my business.

  41. It's unfair how some of these managers get away with anything. The asm in Trumbull CT Whitney took off on a weekend that she was suppose to be working. Dec 13, 14 , and 15. She had myself, some other employees and the leads cover for her by lying to the DM. I have tried to contact HR but no luck, no phone number and no email. This company has some dishonest employees and its uncalled for. And now they have a new lead Sereantea who is nasty towards me and the other employees,but not to the ASM. This company should be careful who they hire. Also I don't state who I am for privacy concern,

  42. My wife just called me crying frantically. She was just cursed out by the store's manager in Highland Village, Houston TX. For no reason. Just flat out- cursed out! She wouldn't give a name when my wife asked to complain to corporate. She said she was the manager. This behavior should not be tolerated under no circumstances and she should be FIRED. You can best believe we will NEVER shop at your stores or affiliated stores again...

  43. I went to the store in Ft. Smith Ar. I was bent over looking at a shirt and a lady almost ran me over I said oh I'm sorry, excuse me, she just looked at me and kept on going never saying a word. I assumed this was just a rude customer. I was with my daughter and we we both were buying clothes, my daughter found some shoes she wanted to get for my grandson and she asked two of the employees that were stocking if they had any more of the shoes in the back in the size she needed. One of the ladies went to the back and looked and was very helpful, she said they should be getting another shipment in soon but told us we could order them online. She said when you check out the girl at the register will give you a coupon and you can use it when you place your online order. we walked to the register and who was ringing us up but the terribly rude woman. She never said anything to us such as did you find everything ok or even acknowledging us other to ring our items up. As we were leaving I asked the employee did you happen to put a coupon in the bag and she very hatefully said for what. I proceeded to tell her about the other lady telling us we would could a coupon when we checked out so she could use it online. She then proceeded to hand the coupon to my daughter, practically throwing it at her. I will never go in there again if this employee is working, we are the customers and they are getting our money, so act civilized to your customers. What does it hurt to show a little courtesy? But as I am looking at other post on here it seems like the Children's Place has a lot of rude employees. Sounds like something needs to be done before they go out of business because of there rude employees actions.

  44. St. Catharines, Ontario store: Extremely rude manager, treated me as an insignificant customer - in front of other customers and the associate that was helping me. Sales associate tried to be helpful and manager also treated her rudely. Will never return, will take my business to the competition!

  45. Ok, so I guess I’ll air out here before taking it to facebook and all else. My Son just had a Birthday this weekend and with it came lots a nice gifts including lots of cloth from my Mother In-law. She is a “Children’s Place Diamond shopper” and she lives an hour away. Some of the cloth did not fit him and no I had no receipt, but all I wanted was store credit so I could find him things that fit. They took my license and ran it for authorization which than came back as denied for return…to which I said “I didn’t realize we know have to be authorize to return things for store credit.” The woman said “I’m sorry this has nothing to do with us it’s a new system that either accepts or not denies returns.” Again I said “what?” So she than tells me you can call the number on the denial receipt to inquire about the issue. So than I did, and they say “sorry, your return was denied because you don’t have a receipt.” To which I said “So you’re telling me that your company is contracted by the “Children’s Place” to do their dirty work in denying their own customers proper returns as per the statement on the back of receipts that follow return policies?” She than says “Sorry you might want to contact their corporate offices.” To which I than said “I sure will.” I hate corporations that come up with sneaky ways to screw their own customer over, but in the same token they set themselves up for law suits for not following underlined policies that they had their law team write up, if they are not going to follow their own underlined returned policies, we as customers can also take things to a lawyer that is willing to put up a nice fight to get a nice corporate cut. This all happened in Las Cruces, NM.

  48. I am a frequent customer of your Green Bay, WI store. I love your products and the girls in the store have always been really nice and helpful!!! My last two visits to your store have been a nightmare!!! Both times the problem came from the stores new manager Dana!!! Dana is rude to employees and customers. When I was shopping she never came to ask me if I needed anything or if she could help me, I was in the store for quite some time. Then when I went to check out she was rude acted like it was a huge inconvenience to have to wait on me!!! The second time I over heard her talking to another employee about another employee saying how she didn't like Miranda and was going to give her a hard time, and try to get her to quit!!! Dana is very unprofessional!!!! I usually shop your store at least once to twice a week and spend a $100+ dollars a week in your store for my daughter and nieces. Since the two instances I have not been back to your store. I want to shop your store but I shouldn't have to worry about getting a hard time or having to listen to an unprofessional Manager slander an employee!!!!

  49. I worked at Tcp SEDC and it's not a nice place to work for. They treat the associates like they are slaves and made it where you couldn't move up in the buildings. All y'all associates have no clue on what it's like to work in the big place.

They would have what they called round table meetings where the associates could speak about what going on or any request and they would always denie your request and be rude about it.

    2. Supervisors get hired off the street and don't know anything about the place and treat others like they are still in jail. You get no holiday bonuses (be lucky they get holiday pay or ot pay). Sorry to say but if you ask me it plain stupid to buy your childrens close online. If you do buy online the costumerservice is terrible.
