    Pros

    If you have management that doesn't talk crap about their employees you'll have a decent time working at marshalls

    Cons

    You find yourself being degraded by some customers because they have bad returns, management where I worked walked all over their employees and talked behind everyone back which resulted in some of their best employees to walk out on them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please listen to your employees, and please stop acting like high school girls gossiping

    Pros

    great life/work balance as far as hours go. Most of the upper management is nice and respectful.

    Cons

    the company is very legal, everything that is done or rolled out is based on either being sued for something or will we be sued for something. they like to cover their butts.
    don't try to stop shoplifters, you will get fired!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    your loosing good managers due to your policies on shoplifting.

    I worked at Marshalls

    Pros

    From my short sentence being there I presumed that it was relatively easy to obtain a leadership position if you showed that you worked hard and proved to the management team that you were capable of doing so. It just might take a couple of years to get there. They allowed you to have some flexibility to your schedule but you had to have a deliberate excuse to not be there; as to be in school, for instance. Employees were very professional and had sincere personalities. Would work with them again.

    Cons

    Not enough employees worked at the facility so we were always short of staff. Had to learn some training on my own through a binder on my spare time, if any.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more employees.

    I worked at Marshalls full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule management very supportive

    Cons

    Corporate dictates a lot of "cubical ideas" when if they spent a month in the stores they would see they are unrealistic and with expectations to get all freight to floor, chief excellent customer service and don't forget to push customers to fill out credit card applications

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate management needs to go into the stores and work it for a month and remember what it feels like and have them drive customer service and get customers to sign up for TJX credit card on top of pushing all of the freight out of the back room.. They have very unrealistic expectations

    Pros

    You can gain retail experience. You can work in various departmemts

    Cons

    I don't like that employees have to do OTHER. Jobs like ringing On THE register. Retail should be unionized

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs. To VISIT THEIR STORES ON A REGULAR BASES AND SEE FIRST HAND WHAT THEIR EMPLOYEES EXPERIENCE. AND SPEND ALL DAY THERE

    I worked at Marshalls part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people were great to work with. I was okay with minimum wage which was 7.50 a hour and it was easy to work your way up.

    Cons

    The store didn't have a lot of customers so I was left bored and standing for hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management was good.

    Pros

    The employees overall are friendly, usually the customers are too. There's always going to be that occasional rude person.

    Cons

    There's a lot of theft, and they put a lot of pressure to get you to sign customers up for TJX credit cards. Not enough hours except for the fall season leading up to Christmas

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ease off on push for the credit card. Not a lot of bonuses
