    I worked at TJ Maxx part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great coworkers, fun place to work usually. Even though the discount is only 10%, the prices are cheap as it is so that's nice. And occasional 20% weekends.

    Cons

    Verbally abused by management for years, absolutely no room to move up in the company or even to move up to full time. Inconsistency between upper and lower management. Company hates it if you go to school and also want to work for TJ Maxx.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your associates with decency and respect. Stop talking about people behind their back (this was done about almost all associates, not just a few select.) Raise the pay - I was hired by a competitor for the same position for almost $3 more per hour!!!!!!!!!!

    I have been working at TJ Maxx part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Occasional Double Employee discount (20%) Recent raise for all minimum wage employees to $9 per hour Managers sometimes bring food for all employees in the break room Able to trade hours with other associates

    Cons

    Must request off THREE weeks in advance 4 hours a week given to many employees at my location. Refusal to give more hours yet still hiring more associates Employees are not notified of schedule changes Managers are condescending and sometimes rude Managers refuse to train lower level employees in other departments (after 4 months of being employed there and asking various times to be trained, I have been told continuously I will be trained in other departments "soon" without any follow up) If working till closing, all employees (after punching out) must stay an estimate of 10-15 minutes extra before being allowed to leave while the manager closes the store. Toy department is a constant mess and toys are found across the store, separated from their packaging Constantly pushing TJX credit card Never received 90 day review promised upon being hired

    Advice to Management

    Listen to and have equal respect for your younger employees. High school students have just as much to offer to a part time sales associate position as anyone else. Notify employees of schedule changes since schedules can't be viewed online. some employees only work once a week and can't check their schedule on a daily basis. Allow employees to grow and be trained for more than one position in fitting room, sales floor, jewelry, and cashier.

    I have been working at TJ Maxx part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most associates I work with are pretty friendly.

    Cons

    Where do I begin? - There's never any payroll, so there's never any hours - They don't appreciate you. - Doesn't matter how hard you work, if you're a backroom associate, it's VERY RARE that you'll become Full-Time. - (In the store that I work at, which is a high-volume store) they send way more merchandise that can go out. - They (management) expect you to do more than your job description requires
