I worked at TJX Companies

Pros

If you don't have any big ambitions, and really just want to coast on the status quo, this is the place for you. The company is stable and rewards conformists who keep quiet. A good manager makes all the difference in one's level of satisfaction.

Cons

The pervasive attitude is that the business model is "so unique" that one cannot possibly comprehend it without starting at the bottom. HR actively avoids recruiting anyone with graduate degrees. Way too much work is expected for far too little reward. Off-price retailer = off-price salaries.A good manager makes all the difference in one's level of satisfaction; unfortunately, good managers are very difficult to find in this company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Throw out the farce called Open Door policy; it's a joke and you know it. Enforce the code of conduct at all levels.

    I have been working at TJX Companies

    Job security. I do not believe the company has reported any losses.

    Cons

    It is kinda difficult to get promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The automatic scheduling system, Kronos is a complete joke. Perfume shrink is out of control, we need lock boxes distrusted to every store. The district manager for the St. Louis, Branson, Springfield and Joplin area doesn't seem to listen to our concerns. My store was having some trouble and he came down to hear our concerns and nothing was ever done. We have had several associates call him and inform him of certain situations that should not be happening and he kinda laughs it off.
