    Pros

    - Great for first job - People Are Friendly - Great Pay for Minors -Flexible Hours -Great for busy people -Discounts on all items

    Cons

    - Managers can forget about days that you claim you cannot work - Shortage of associates due to people just not showing up or not finding somebody to fill in the spot

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more understanding when people are not available on certain days because people have more priorities then just work.

    Pros

    I truly enjoyed my time with the company. Great co-workers, management, and customers allowed me to learn a lot of information. The company was willing to accommodate its employees especially when it came to schedule changes.

    Cons

    I didn't really see any downsides while working at Marshalls. I would say the benefits of a TJX card may want to be revamped, but in terms of the daily operations of the company I felt everything was done fairly effectively.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage employees to move up in the ranks and provide more opportunities for employees to interact with customers in creative ways outside of simply TJX card benefits.

    Pros

    Arranged garments according to departments and handed out tickets. Tracked garments and handled ticket inventory. Pulled out return merchandise from the service desk and broought it into the fitting room. Paging various departments to get their garments, shoes, jewelry brought in by the customers.

    Cons

    Working 8 hour shifts and getting late lunches almost at 2:00 p.m since there was no one to cover and ending up getting a write-up from management since the store policy was to take lunch before the 5th hour of work. Removing paper from the restroom off the big roller. .

    Advice to Management

    None whatsoever!!

    Pros

    It's a really good start for someone who wants to pursue a career in retail. The hiring manager is great.

    Cons

    I personally feel they don't pay their employees enough. They hold you accountable for a lot of managerial mistakes and encouraged you to get all customers to sign up for their rewards credit card which not everyone wants. If you don't ask for people to sign up for rewards or gift cards you get written up. Many coordinators rarely work and take credit for what the cashiers do.

    Pros

    Not much. Cool employees. Mostly cool managers. Very flexible will work around other jobs, school, or whatever else.

    Cons

    terrible pay. Very late nights after closing to clean up, hardly ever get out before an 1:30 after closing. Rude customers (I guess this is all retail). Very little to no training at all. A lot of condescending employees and managers. Very little room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Train better. More opportunity for growth.
