Good retail company, but very behind the times in technologies.

I worked at TJX Companies full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

The company is wonderfully successful.

Cons

A lot of legacy systems and applications make working in IT a challenge. Not flexible on hours or work environments... very much a 9-5, must be in the office, etc.

    Pros

    Very good company that cares about the community and will give back during hard times. Most positions are minimum wage but loss prevention does pay significantly better. The company is expanding and is working diligently to grow into a 40 billion per year company. Excellent internal promotion possibilities on the store side if your willing to devote yourself.

    Cons

    This company is all about saving money so don't expect to be offered a competitive salary. You have to fight for any pay raises and the yearly raises are a joke. You can get promoted but don't expect them to give you what they would give an external candidate. This company loves external candidates and many times won't even hold interviews or post open positions if they can find a good external candidate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You talk constantly about internal development and complete IDP's yearly but rarely give a promotion to an internal candidate. If you will offer an external candidate 45,000 but will only offer an internal candidate an max 15% raise, don't be surprised when they get upset. The least you can do is upgrade from a technology standpoint, it's sad.

    I have been working at TJX Companies part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    No real pro's, they keep everyone part time, I presume so not to pay benefits etc. At least in my store the management is friendly and allows you to work with autonomy rather than micromanaging. Ver large company, so fairly corporate and staff discount at all tjx companies, TJ Maxx, Homegoods and Marshalls (although discount amount is minimal)

    Cons

    lowest salary is minimum wage. Hard work in a fast paced environment with very little customer thanks due to the discount environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the staff more in terms of pay and progression, high turn over due to the low pay means that the doors keep revolving and you lose the worthwhile members of staff because their value is missed. Management do not communicate opportunities to the staff. Also signing customers up to TJX credit should result in the staff getting a financial reward, this is the case in most other businesses offering the same service.
