    I have been working at TJ Maxx full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I am thankful I have a job. Have seen a lot of managers come and go and employees some are missed others not so much .Tjmaxx is closed thanksgiving, After 20 years you get 5 weeks vacation.

    Cons

    management is so busy worried about credit card apps, unions coming in,and keeping the pay of employees down,
    Yes we know that your bonuses are made on the store stats.And if you do not make your numbers you will be shipped off to an under performing store where yes you will only receive your salary.Company values are $ not employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    store manager something is broken.May god save us all if u become a DM. You are rude, the way you treat the staff is disgraceful.

    I worked at TJ Maxx part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get to meet a lot of new people. From customers to actual Associates.

    Cons

    There were a lot of negatives working there. Managers are horrible and some coordinators think that they are managers when they aren't. My store manager didn't want to do any motivation for his associates. They are always on you about credits even though you ask and the customer doesn't want one the managers still get mad and tell you basically that they can get one and you can't so step it up. Its sad because i used to really enjoy coming into work when us associates were being thanked for doing our job and helping the company out but as time went on and a few managers left the job just went down hill. Also ive heard the same from other associates i worked with that transferred to another store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pushing TJX credit when every associate is trying their hardest to sell the card. also thank your associates with motivation not saying with food or anything like that but a thank you will be more appreciated than name calling and being criticized for everything that an associated does.

    Pros

    A 10% discount is a "pro."

    Cons

    You only get a raise every year. Yes you've read correctly, every year. If you are granted a raise it can be anywhere from $0.05-0.25. That's it and that's all. No room to "work your way up."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick better management.

    I worked at TJ Maxx full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Can't think of one! Great music! Prices maybe? Newness with merchandise daily.

    Cons

    District Manager needs to build relationships with every manager! My experience with this company DM never built a relationship with me and showed favoritism with other managers. Believe and back your managers when you put them in a difficult store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move your DM's around! Shouldn't stay in the same area for years. Back your managers, build relationships with all managers!

    Pros

    There itsnt really much pros, it's like you just have to deal with what ever you go through at this job.

    Cons

    Dealing with returns from customers, customers attitudes, trying to keep the store clean but keep getting called to the register because they don't have enough people on the schedule

    Typical, low-paying clothing and housewares retail job.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at TJ Maxx

    Pros

    A decent employee discount and other staff members were often friendly and pleasant to work with. Working there also means you may get first dibs on new merchandise or markdowns.

    Cons

    Terrible, ever-changing schedule; rude customers; constantly having to clean up a perpetually disorganized store; underpaid for effort. This is not a job for anyone who has a real work ethic and cares about what they do - your efforts will go unappreciated by managers and customers alike.

    Former Employee - Backroom Associate in Wilkes-Barre, PA

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

    Pros

    Its not difficult or stressful

    Cons

    The challenges that I had working there is for example, one week they will give me 25 hours and the next two weeks only 8 hours for the entire week sometimes it was as worst as only 4 hours in the entire week. My availability was always "Anytime" and I was trained for couple departments and knew how to do everything besides registers. Another thing is that I applied to be at the front registers and I was pushed to backroom that included me coming all the time at 6 am....I was promised several times that I was going to be getting trained at the registers and after a year of working there faithfully with no call offs I stopped asking. My store had no problem ordering pizza and subs every other week but when I will ask why I am only getting 4 hours in one week I was told that the funds are not there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When Someone applies for a job for part time you should be able to give them at least 25 hours a week, when people apply in the expectations that they will be working full time and you dont even give them 30 hours, then you should expect that your most faithful worker will have enough one day and quit like I did. I will never go to the stop to shop either, thats how upset I am.

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

    Pros

    This was my first job, and this was the first company that I applied to that responded to me. They are likely to hire inexperienced workers and give them experience to take with them. Working here gave me something to put on my resume.

    Cons

    In exchange for hiring inexperienced workers, the company pays barely above minimum wage for a store associate position and frequently does not raise the pay of the trained workers who have earned higher pay than they actually receive. In addition to this, the managers have little respect for their employees' well-being; the main focus is on the amount of money the managers make and the company makes. As an employee who actually did my job well, I received too little credit and too much stress for the amount of money I was working and the position I worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with more respect and you might not have a turn over rate as high as you do.
