    I have been working at Marshalls

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, normal pay for retail

    Cons

    Constant micromanaging and pressure to sell credit cards

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Customers don't want credit cards to save 10% when the interest rate goes up to 20%

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

    Pros

    The easiest pay ever. Working fitting room is so easy it's almost tiring, though. It's very boring. But working the sales floor is great. Didn't get register trained. Now I think I suspect why.

    Cons

    I suspect some quiet discrimination at the store I worked at. It's funny...the video we watched proudly states that marshalls supports diversity, yet there were so many non-white team members and not a single non-white manager. Also, one of the managers was a rude woman who never bothered to ask my name.
    I was seasonal, was sick in my second month of work with bronchitis. i missed more than a few days of work so it's understandable that they'd let me go. What I didn't understand was why they didn't have the balls to tell me to my face. Are they incapable of talking to me like a human being? Guess not. I saw they changed my schedule from the two shifts I still had that last week to no shifts at all. And then treated me like an idiot, even though I have a photo of the schedule they actually switched out. Truly childish and cowardly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why give advice? They don't really care.

    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.

    Pros

    Easy job that's about it, the main store manager is nice

    Cons

    They don't recycle anything, they throw Perfectly good stuff away if it doesn't sell instead of donating it to homeless or animal shelters, everybody talks crap about other employees, there are constant payroll problems and they cut hours a lot

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more professional

    I worked at Marshalls full-time (less than a 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
