    Former Employee - Cash Office Associate in Yonkers, NY (US)

    I worked at TJX Companies part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    As a retail employee, diligence was recognized by most managers and was compensated by flexible schedules and giving responsibility, which added to one's skill set.

    Cons

    Additional responsibilities are not compensated. There are a lot of empty promises made by managers and district managers. When promotions are actually given, pay is barely increased. Opportunity to move from retail to corporate is rare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to corporate management would be to stop looking down on your retail workers. Corporate employees often visit stores without acknowledging the retail employees or speaking to them on what can be done to improve the stores. Many employees in my particular district were young, educated individuals with fresh ideas regarding marketing and merchandising. Instead, the corporate offices are full of older males with stale, out of date ideas and trends.
