Store Manager (Current Employee), Tyler, TX – September 5, 2012
Cons: no advancement oppurtunities
The customers are a joy as we get to be apart of a special time in their lives. The upper management does not treat store managers well and you are unable to advance past store manager if you do not have district manager experiance.

Pros: good compensation
Cons: they appreciate you until they don't
Motherhood Maternity is an excellent place to work for a strong individual looking to advance in the retail business. The stress can get a little high if sales are down or you do not have the right team working for you.
Store Manager (Former Employee), Stockton, CA – August 10, 2012
Pros: great staff, playful and full of happy moments
Cons: understaffed, small store and hard return policy
As an Store Manager for Motherhood Maternity, I learned that being a manger was about trust and dedication. I loved my job daily with my employees and customers. I felt the District Manager was not very helpful in my training or success. I would have loved to stay with Motherhood Maternity, as I am a mom, it made work something I loved and enjoyed in – more... one place. – less
Business that was goal oriented and a chance to be yourself.
Store Manager (Former Employee), Tamuning, GU – July 18, 2012
Pros: interacting with people, learning new things everyday
Working at Motherhood Maternity was an experience that will be with me always. Being the Store manager definitely had its challenges, however, the challenges were never to difficult to overcome. Favorite part of the day is meeting new people, establishing a relationship with them, and having them become frequent clients of the store. My staff, like – more... myself, was well rounded and outgoing. We really enjoyed what we were doing which made each work day fun and successful. Unfortunately, the company decided to close the store because of how far the Guam store is from all other locations. – less
Sale Associate (Former Employee), Flowood, MS – July 6, 2012
Pros: meeting new people
Cons: the pay and customers attitudes
I love meeting new people and it was always a good day there were some bad and irritated days and some wonderful days. My co-workers thy were good to get a long with and also the managers. The hardest part was working by yourself and doing the totes before a deadline.
Cashier (Current Employee), Lee's Summit, MO – June 30, 2012
Pros: getting to help people, comfortable enviroment.
I love working at Motherhood. The people are friendly and I love helping people. It's great. The problem is, the manager I have doesn't have a whole lot of patience with me. I had only been working for about 2 weeks when I was told that I wasn't strong enough to hold the store on my own and got my hours cut to next to nothing. I personally don't think – more... I was given enough of a chance to prove myself. – less
Sales Representative (Former Employee), Cheektowaga, NY – June 9, 2012
Pros: fun, small store and gives staff responsibility
Cons: pay, part-time, small staff
Working for Motherhood Maternity was very enlightening to me. Especially because I was very young. I learned a lot about a pregnant woman's needs, wants and desires. My manager was very polite and always easy to talk to. There was only 4 employee's in the store, including the manager. The hardest part about the job for me was working alone at night. – more... I was young and scared easily. The most enjoyable part was getting to know the customers and seeing them pre and post baby. – less
Part-Time Sales Associate (Former Employee), Wauwatosa, WI – June 3, 2012
Working at Motherhood Maternity was an experience i was pretty familiar with. I had prior experience pertaining to customers. A typical day at work for me was very smooth. This leased business was specifically for women who were expecting. They would come in and hope to find new clothes that would make them feel comfortable as well as sexy at the same – more... time. As i would begin my shift, I would open the store and register if I was scheduled to open the store in the morning. I learned a lot of things about women and how much their body changes while pregnant. The management was ok, but personally, I thought there was favoritism. a co-worker of mine i believe had another job, and was going to school while also working at motherhood. It would seem that she would get more hours than i when we both were working part time, and while I only had that job, with no other priorities. But, I didn't complain. I always roll with it. The hardest part of the job was remembering specific sizes and the bra measuring would always get me confused. But the most enjoyable part of the job while working at Motherhood, was the customers I sent out that door with a smile on their face when they feel they've made the right choice. – less
Sales Associate and Cashier (Former Employee), Florence, KY – April 25, 2012
Had a good time working for this company. I really enjoyed meeting all the customers and assisting them. The only issue I had with the job was severe under staffing during the busiest times of the day and the busiest seasons.
