Decent part-time job with above average pay when you cap out at payscalae

Crew Member (Former Employee) Ventura, CA

ProsBest reasons to work at TJ's is flexible hours, and decent pay for what you do great Part time job for students and people who want to work with little responsibility-other than showing up, cashiering and stocking. Easy going place to work.

ConsThe full-timers are manager's who for the most part are uneducated and got promoted based on doing being friends with the Captain or first mate. No formal training program for them it's a sink or swim baptism by fire management program.

Advice to Senior ManagementFormalize a management training program-

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Pros: Great pay and great benefits. The training, at least when I started, was better than any I received at other retail jobs.… Cons: You most likely will get injured.
