    Pros

    Its pretty laid back for a company.

    Cons

    Senior management makes up the rules as they go. No constant communication, development, or feedback on your performance.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate the overall expectations and follow-up. As a Region, or District ensure that everyone is on the same page as far as company policy and guidelines. Don't make up the rules as you go.

    Pros

    I love the customers and enjoy some of my coworkers, but that's about all

    Cons

    The hours are the biggest problem I have you sometimes get as few as 10 hrs per week. There is hardly any room for advancement

    Advice to Management

    Give people at least 20 hrs a week if you expect them to stick around. You want have employee loyalty if they can't pay their bills

    Pros

    The location that I was working at was within walking distance from my home, if I had to take the bus I would not have accepted a min wage position simply because they only give decent (20+) hours a week during the holidays.

    Cons

    If you're not a high school student, trust me you can do better. I am a 28year old college graduate with 8 years of retail experience and wasn't compensated accordingly.

    Advice to Management

    Make the job and the wages, and hours worth my time, and stop being so cliquey.

    Pros

    TJX has a maternity policy, that is a pro. The policy itself needs improvement. I am a corporate associate and have experienced maternity leave at TJX. The description below is reflective of existing 2015 family leaves policies.

    Cons

    TJX's Maternity policy is complicated and could be more comprehensive. There are no official paternity or adoption leave policies.
    The Federal Medical Leave Act protects your job for 12 weeks following the birth of your child. This does not mean it is paid. TJX's maternity leave policy is contingent on enrollment in short term disability. After a year of service you are eligible for paid maternity leave through short term disability. Short term disability provides partially paid leave for 6-8 weeks. 8 weeks for cesarian delivery and 6 weeks for vaginal birth. Short term disability covers 100% of pay for 4 weeks and 60% of pay for weeks 5-8. Accrued sick time hours may be used during the medical leave portion of maternity leave (that first 6-8 weeks) to cover the 40% gap.
    For the second portion of maternity leave (4-6 additional weeks under FMLA protection) only accrued vacation hours may be used to supplement pay. Depending on the time of year and length of service with the company, an associate may have anywhere from 0-4 weeks vacation hours accrued. It's typical for an associate to have at least 2 weeks unpaid during the 12 weeks of FMLA maternity leave.

    Advice to Management

    The lengthy policy explanation demonstrates why it needs to be streamlined- it's too complicated and confusing. It would be great if it was a simple as- 12 weeks full pay!

    the store is all teenagers who play on their phones and management doesn't care, they just sit in their office and eat

    Advice to Management

    value your good employees instead of favoring the teens who don't care if they work or not
