    Pros

    Employee discount was awesome to have, they even have special weekend when the employee discount was higher than normal.

    Cons

    Management. (at least at the store I worked at. )
    Would request days off well in advance and still be scheduled.

    Pros

    Good if you're in high school or college. Hours a flexible and they work with you with time off and vacations for certain periods of time.

    Cons

    No room for promotion. Company guidelines always different based on whichever location you are working for.

    Advice to Management

    Standard Rules and Procedures need to be overlooked and implemented at ALL locations.

    Pros

    Location of the store was popular, so time always flew by when working. There are incentives for doing a good job, like monthly gift card drawings. Great company to learn different aspects of retail.

    Cons

    No benefits if you're part-time. Difficult to move to full time due to budget. Only managers, key holders, and coordinators have full time.

    Advice to Management

    Retail stores are always busy, but it's important to help develop and groom your employees to be future leaders.

    Pros

    I've worked for 3 different stores within TJX; Marshalls, Home Goods, and TJ Maxx. They were all great places to work. The people were always friendly (including the managers) and they made sure you were ok/well taken care of (incentives, brakes, etc) ... It's more of an after high school/college job though.

    Cons

    When working anywhere in retail, it's tragic when it comes to closing. Depending on how bad the store got at the end of the day (mess), you never really knew what time you were going to get out.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to recognize workers for their great work and effort. - You signed up to be a manager, so don't end up taking your frustrations out on the workers.

    Pros

    - Really great environment for highschoolers and college students to work.
    - Flexible hours and scheduling.
    - Fairly easy work.
    - Ability to switch positions throughout the store.
    - Managers and Coordinators work on the floor with the associates.
    - Friendly atmosphere and company.

    Cons

    - Bonuses are a little lackluster.
    - Morale is largely dependent on store manager (good or bad depending on stress levels).
    - Certain company goals are simply unattainable.
    - Corporate policy is consistently reiterated day after day.
    - At times, management gives little notice to good work.

    Advice to Management

    - Continue to work alongside associates during normal operations.
    - Find a way to effectively congratulate associates on a job well done. Sometimes a simple "thank you" is much more effective that being given a REACH card.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and great shopping opportunities

    Cons

    The pay is very low with little opportunity for advancement. You will work every position in the store because they refuse to hire enough staff.
