    I have been working at TJX Companies

    Pros

    10% discount everyday as an employee and every now and then 20%. Holiday pay after a certain amount of time of working there.

    Cons

    No idea or way of tracking what's in the store so we have physically look for everything in store. Not a whole lot of associates work in one day so expect to do a lot yourself (at busier stores).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There has to be a way we can look on the register or carry some sort of handheld device to keep track of everything( merchandise). Have better headset for us to communicate with.

    I worked at TJX Companies full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Employee discount on merchandise
    Little need to exercise the intellect

    Cons

    Managers strong-armed and insulted employees in order to motivate them
    Managers took credit and doled out criticism
    Minimal pay for associates
    Unvaried shifts resulted in monotonous tasks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch your language in terms of profanity, comments to female employees, communication with non-native English speaking employees
    You can get more out of your employees by showing them respect

    Current Employee - Sales Associate/Cashier in Cincinnati, OH (US)

    I have been working at TJX Companies part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Coworkers, customers, & management were fantastic 99% of the time (at a great Marshalls branch in Cincinnati)

    Cons

    10% discount, strange. unnecessary rules, low potential for advancement or full time employment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more authentic in your interactions with customers and employees rather than using an obvious fake, over the top, robotic method in your communications. It is nice that you're trying to be friendly, but if it isn't genuine sounding then it's hard to build trust.

    Pros

    Loved it here. Worked with a great group of people and managers . Everyone always helped you with what you didn't know.

    Cons

    The only challenge I had was keeping up with customers during lunch time. There was not enough breaks and the pay raise came very slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
