I worked at TJX Companies full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Good employees, great products, good locations, good benefits. Supportive of diversity in the workplace. Decent formalized training for new managers.

Cons

limited payroll allocated to tasks and projects, high employee turnover, long hours, heavy workloads, no investment made in training or development within the stores. Stores get really trashed and they are hard to recover properly in a given day. Discount isn't really very generous at 10%. No bonus structure or sales incentives to beat goals. Merchandise is on allocation, no ability to place or modify orders at the store level. Some divisiveness between manager peers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Mirror the values the company says it has. Don't be political or be indifferent to some employees, be more open to back and forth conversations and feedback

    I have been working at TJX Companies part-time (less than a 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.
