    Pros

    The atmosphere is fast paced and fun. The company makes it easy to learn the best ways to accomplish your job. They don't like their employees to stall. In fact TJ Maxx actively coaches you on all the different departments and different positions within the company.

    Cons

    The hours are not really full-time. If you're hired at full-time, be lucky to get 30 hours a week. Also, forget about the overtime.

    Advice to Management

    District management should learn that scare tactics just hinders the efforts the local management is making.

    Pros

    flexible schedule and discounts for associates. Also, all the benefits like insurance profit sharing 401k.

    Cons

    Working in retail the daily plan always changes and the pay isn't all that great.

    Advice to Management

    when you have talent in your associates, let them show and prove they can do thejob at hand and acknowledge them for it.

    Pros

    I worked in jewelry for the majority of my time there and it's a really great place to interact with customers. I really enjoyed helping them find what they were looking for.

    If you are a hard worker it doesn't go unnoticed and will often get your name put in a drawing to win gift cards.

    They often bought food for special occasions like Christmas and Halloween.

    Cons

    Overall a pretty horrible working experience. The hours and pay were horrible, plus it never seemed as if my manager were listening to my request for days off or for fewer hours. I was taking 18 hours of school work and they were wanting to work me 32 plus hours a week. It just was too much. The stores are huge and closing was a nightmare. I wouldn't leave for 2 hours sometimes after the store would close. A LOT of walking and being on your feet plus constantly picking up after lazy customer. They are really hard on you about selling rewards cards and will stay on you if you don't.

    Advice to Management

    Start cleaning at least an hour before store closes so you can leave sooner.

    Strive to sell rewards cards and managers will love you!

  7. TJX is a very good company that really cares about their employees. Not the best LP program but overall a great company.

    Pros

    Chance to move up if you are determined. Once you leave work you are truly out of work.

    Cons

    Monotonous, bad employees are only there because they have been there for ever. Lack of full time positions, terrible business practices (selling extremely high APR credit cards to the elderly who don't understand the consequences of using them)

    Advice to Management

    Care about your job

  9. Best job ever.

    Pros

    Great company benefits, inclusive work environment, flexible schedule. Hard work is recognized & rewarded. Promotions opportunities for the ambitious. Fast paced environment makes the day go quickly. Team atmosphere.

    Cons

    Call outs and lazy workers are tolerated. Frustrating to those who truly work hard. Makes you wonder what management is so afraid of--why do they accept this behavior?

    Advice to Management

    Get some backbone, get rid of the no-shows and don't cares.
