Former Employee - Sales Associate in Elizabeth, NJ

I worked at TJX Companies part-time for less than a year

Pros

This was a great way for me to gain some experience in retail as I was 18 when I started and fresh out of high school. I gained some nice relations with the staff there. Everyone was friendly and around my age besides the managers.

Cons

My manager was beyond rude and a complete B**** ! I was cross trained to work the mens dept and always be on the register so everytime I would be called to a register my manager will always cause a prob with the other managers about me getting called to a register. I also hated the fact that I was only getting paid 7.25/hr and I was part time working full time hrs which beyond dumb.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to work on giving everyone a reasonable amount of hrs along with a better pay.

    Current Employee - Not Worth Mentioning, Does Not Fit Job Reality in Westborough, MA

    I have been working at TJX Companies full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Many good people to work with,
    But, this is the place to be,
    ...If you want to have no feelings of accomplishment
    ...If you are single and like to pick up the slack of people with kids
    ...If you like to work less than 40 hours as a salaried professional
    ...If you enjoy hiding behind process to do nothing and get paid for it
    ...If pointing fingers at others when things go wrong is your thing

    Cons

    Not a merit-based organization; little reward for true productivity
    IT Management infused with too many individuals more interested in their personal gain than solving problems and creating high-performing teams
    Huge and growing chasm between management and true contributors
    Very negative environment, IT management is blissfully ignorant of the discontent (or simply does not care)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is only a matter of time before the business quantifies how little IT service they now get to the costs they incur. Instead of one-size-fits-all process, use more intelligence in focusing on problems. End the matrix experiment, get back to cohesive teams that produce high-quality at less cost. Understand the true cost of all this outsourcing.... lower hourly rate and fixed managed service contracts do not equal reduced cost and better quality,
