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

Pros

-Management has been trying to help me move up in the company
-Fun putting out all the new merchandise
-Don't have super late or early hours (I usually work at 9:30AM
-Some great people and managers
-Customers are nice for the most part
-A lot easier than working at a larger store and less stressful

Cons

-I was hired on to become a coordinator. This was over 7 months ago and they still keep beating around it. Now they can't because there are no full-time positions open. Be aware that they love to have people as part-time.
-Low pay
-Non-consistent hours. Some people only are getting one or two days a week.

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

    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.

    Current Employee - Lead Loss Prevention Detective in Dallas, TX

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

    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.
