    I have been working at Marshalls full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Able to be creative, schedule flexibility, growth potential, and motivational programs. Very fast paced environment with never a dull moment.

    Cons

    Lots of internal audits, never enough payroll for the workload assigned. Very disorganized inventory system, so you never know what you are getting, and never know what other locations might have.

    Advice to Management

    Cut back on some of the audits and programs, so we have time to actually do our jobs. A little more autonomy when it comes to merchandising for our clientele could increase sales.

    I have been working at Marshalls full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you are a coordinator your hours are consistent. There is always opportunity to advance if you're willing to transfer.

    Cons

    Most stores are understaffed so the majority of your time will be spent in other departments in your department will suffer even though I'm a supervisor I feel as I'm just a regular associate I don't feel respected if anything doesn't get done in your department you will get blamed

    Advice to Management

    Stafford Stewart according to your business if you know you have a lot of business you need more people don't try to run the store with three people and then expect it to be perfect at night

    I worked at Marshalls part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fast paced work environment so time passed quickly. Taking days off wasn't a problem as long as you filled out a form two weeks ahead of time.

    Cons

    Their training is lacking in some areas so quite a few things would be learned by doing it wrong and then being corrected, for example: putting away returned items, which items needed security tags, what a TJX rewards card is, etc.

    I worked at Marshalls part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Can work as many hours as one wants but not more than 29 hours in a week.

    Cons

    They need to give people more hours and benefits.

    Advice to Management

    More full time employees, do not cut every one hours at 29, employees need benefits.

    Pros

    Fast pace environment; friendly employees; room to grow

    Cons

    It is retail after all; sometimes the customers are rude

    Advice to Management

    Don't make us use all of our vacation that we earn in the same year we earn it. We should be able to accrue it to a max of 5 weeks.
