    It is a very interesting place to work.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI worked in the back in shipping and receiving. The good thing about it was that I was in the back room unloading the truck, and I was called to the front for customer service, when needed. However, I did not have to deal with irate customers.

    ConsSome of the challenges were handling fragile products in a fast paste environment, and knowing where they go in the store.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe TJ Maxx I worked at in Fountain Valley, CA. needs better organization skills, on the behalf of management.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    good job not a career

    Shoe Salemen (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    Proscan't stop making friends when your work there's always someone to help you, or if you feel like you don't understand. There some there to help you. The job is good for someone who is unsure of him self but not for someone who can work at a fast past

    Consdon't want friend instead of co-workers, I've work around co-workers. but working people that just show out and just want a pay check. Isn't good. This shows that if you can do the work and don't which someone clown around. The job is for you

    Advice to Senior ManagementOKAY

    TJ Maxx is not a company I'd like to keep working for.

    Sales Associate (Current Employee)

    ProsTJ Maxx is good if you have a pet or like to go shopping at TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and Home Goods. It was easy to get hired and the discount is always nice. I wasn't happy doing the register so they moved me to the stockroom. They do care about their employees happiness.

    ConsNot a good job if you're single and wanting to improve your financial scene. Hours weekly are never the same. Wasn't thoroughly trained on the register. I was mislead when they mentioned to me about the way I was going to be trained on the register. Weird stock room hrs to work. And low pay to start

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo a better job of training people on the register who aren't comfortable right away.

    VERY temporary, NO room for advancement.

    Customer Service Associate (Current Employee)

    ProsWork is simple, basic retail environment.

    ConsMinimum wage (it takes a VERY long time to get any kind of raise); very few hours, many employees are sometimes rude and unfriendly; poorly managed; LOTS of favoritism among employees and managers, which leads to unnecessary raises and promotions; always issues with employees' schedules, zero opportunity for advancement and growth for the employees who actually take their jobs seriously; most employees are high school and college students who would rather have a social life and not come to work with a hangover the next day, and when people leave and hours become available, instead of letting current associates have the hours, they would rather hire MORE employees to an already over-staffed store.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    it sucks

    Cashier (Former Employee) Pleasant Hill, CA

    ProsThe only good thing about working here was that it didn't require any brain power and you just have to pretend you're a customer service robot.

    ConsThey are way to strict and have no acceptance for anything you may try to do that's different than they way you're supposed to do things.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
