    Pros

    Good products, cheap stuff, ok employee discounts, sometimes a fun work place, good amount of customers, and the best place is the fitting room!

    Cons

    They don't want to work around your school schedules, they don't pay much, the place is always a mess, and supervisors wants you to be 10 places at once.

    Pros

    Great for college students, first time jobs, or part-time work.

    Cons

    The communication within the stores, between management and staff.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to really mean what you say, if you really understand a situation then do just that. If something can't or can be done a certain way, be honest.

    Pros

    NONE other than My supervisor is cool.

    Cons

    NEVER take this position unless you want to be belittled and bullied all day long. The buyers are awful and have 0 respect. They will treat you like a slave and don't care about you or appreciate anything you do for them. On top of it all, you get paid no money. they say there is room for growth but unless you want to go through 3 interviews for the buyers program or be an admin you're out of luck. I really have nothing nice to say about this position.

    Advice to Management

    More pay. Buyers need to treat people with respect.

    I worked at TJX Companies as a contractor

    Pros

    Solid Training during the first few weeks.

    Cons

    Overall depending on the division you work for, they treat contractors with little to no respect even though you are working on the same level as full time employees and have the same responsibilities. It is not stable. I had to work under one supervisor, finally learned everything I was supposed to do to perform the job and then they moved me to a completely different division that I didn't interview for and had no experience in. I received less than a week of training, had to manage three different departments and their COC process which my supervisor said was a new department they were "trying out". Also, to top it off, when I switched divisions I had no computer, no access to a J drive and all these controls were necessary to perform the job. Instead half of my shifts were consisted of running back between two floors, using a training computer and no time to organize and have a desk. I would also be told to call the help desk to gain access to these controls and half the time they couldn't be properly installed on a training computer. I was given responsibility before I was set up and that is not efficient way to manage or do business. In addition, I would hear my supervisor talking to the GMM's of how they should let certain people go because they weren't catching up "quick". Depending on the division you worked in, you could have a great experience or a completely awful experience. In this role there also is little to no growth. Many MAs want to be buyers and from what I had witnessed does not happen.

    Advice to Management

    Be professional and not trash talk contractors in front of them. It is unbelievably unprofessional and offer better training if you want qualified individuals to work for your firm. Take into account other peoples learning styles and adapt. It will only help you and your business in the long run.

    Pros

    Competitive pay. Excellent benefits. Strong revenue and company future growth.

    Cons

    IT culture is dysfunctional. Totally separate from the business. Open door policy is a phrase that is said but not followed. No strategy. Poorly managed. Lots of infighting and territory grabbing.

    Pros

    Good employee discount at all store divisions.

    Cons

    below average compensation for the industry, very clique-ish community, poor communication of company strategy to employees.

    Advice to Management

    In the words of Jack Welch - "Share information relentlessly." Don't keep your employees in the dark wondering where the company is going.

    Pros

    Fast paced and energetic place to work. Loyal company. 20% off special weekends. Good hours. Decent pay. Friendly customer.

    Cons

    Not that great of a rate of pay. They are not great at recognizing talent by appreciation. Take a long time to train and to promote within.

    Advice to Management

    You need to recognize your employees better for their hard work. Give out a lot more reach cards and not just to the same people.
