    I have been working at TJ Maxx full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Can move up relatively quick, decent benefits, and opportunities to grow. I have always heard a lot of horror stories about working in retail, and this is not one of those companies. Plus there are so many incentive programs it's almost unbelievable how much more money you can make per month with the drawings they do for the people that do their job well.

    Cons

    I have noticed that there seem to be a lot of training issues. This is a job where a lot of people come and a lot of people go which makes it difficult to grow as a team.

    Former Employee - Cashier/Sales Associate

    I worked at TJ Maxx

    Pros

    I made enough money to make car payments and pay for gas while I was completing my bachelors degree. Some of my managers were kind and generally nice people to be around. I've heard about worse places to work.

    The company seems to be doing well and I appreciate their overall rules for procedures and work time and their values when it comes to lgbt and other minorities.

    Cons

    Even though I worked very hard and was serious about my job for six years, I never felt like my managers took me seriously. I got very little recognition for when I went above and beyond. I feel like older people sometimes got more recognition for simply doing their job.

    People get hired and quit very frequently. This includes managers, so you constantly have to readjust to your job. Some of those managers and associates are very difficult to deal with... Just remember it's all temporary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to remember that your employees are human beings too. Try to recognize the ones that are working hard. I had a couple great managers who talked to me about my life and actually cared about me and my family. I appreciated that. Some managers are sociopaths, so there is no way to give them advice for improvement.
