    Pros

    Manager was the best and made you feel like family. I had awesome coworkers and they work around your schedule. Very family oriented and understanding if you had to call in because your child was sick.

    Cons

    Pay is minimum wage starting off. High turnover because of this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe up the pay rate to make it worth sticking around. It's hard enough these days to make ends meet.

    I worked at TJ Maxx part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It wasn't a stressful job. Coworkers were nice and friendly and we sometimes hung out outside of work. Low pay, but when you're in high school it's something you can add to your piggy bank. Good merchandise discounts.

    Cons

    Not a fan of routine work. Not a job I used as leverage for future work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more approachable

    I worked at TJ Maxx

    Pros

    I took this job hoping to get experience to advance further. In 3 years, not one coordinator in the district was promoted.

    Cons

    they don't work with you, they push you. They'd rather yell at you. On the positive, the manager got fired a few months after I left. Schedules changed and nobody told you. Check your schedule on Sunday and it's different by Tuesday.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    teach people. Instead of yelling that we aren't getting enough credit apps, how about you give us some pointers on how to get more? I had customers yelling at me that they don't want the credit card, but I had to ask multiple times. As a coordinator I HAD to open more accounts NO MATTER WHAT.

    Pros

    I like the other workers and most of the managers.

    Cons

    Customers can be rude, the work deserves more pay. Often times it just feels like I'm constantly cleaning up after others, not assisting in sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Holiday bonuses, larger raises maybe.

    Pros

    like the workers the company really knows how to get you going

    Cons

    the credit cards omg really they make you sell the card which the apr is stupid its all most am forcing you to buy a house they don't hardly train you if they do its one day the hrs are kinda crazy if you want to move up its pretty hard to do

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop being so micromanagement and if the customers don't want the card then stop forcing us to sell the thing and we should let them know the truth about the card not just sugar coated it people have hard time making ends meet make the customer feel at home when they shop

    Pros

    i worked for tj maxx for 10 yrs everything was good and then i was told to resign or get fired over something stupid

    Cons

    lazy associates and arrogant district managers. alot of back stabbing. you cannot trust anyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take care of people that work hard and dont listen to everyone and make judgements. District managers think they can treat people like dirt. listen to all sides of a story before you make a judgement. what goes around comes around remember karma.
