  1. A good starting point for young professionals, but only the truly determined and driven will succeed.

    I have been working at TJ Maxx part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people, flexible schedules, and anyone can learn any part of the job. Not everyone is crosstrained, but if you request it, they deliver. Advance knowledge of stock - which changes often - and an additional employee discount on already-discounted merchandise. Sporadic opportunities to climb the corporate ladder.

    Cons

    It's really only a starting point for most people. If you want to be successful, you have to have drive and tenacity. I had the same job for five years. In that time, I watched a colleague get hired, learn every part of the store, and rise through the ranks until she went to another branch for further training. While inspiring, it's not for everyone.

    If you work in the fitting room, be ready for at least one person to let their kid pee on the fitting room floor and then not tell anyone.

    Also: Christmas is difficult. Just keep smiling and ask for help from your coworkers before you become desperate (they'll be busy, too, and will need the extra response time).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-familiarize your district managers with associate tasks. In my few years at TJ Maxx, our district manager imposed some unreasonable changes that not only made others' jobs harder, but made shopping more difficult for our customers.

    Pros

    I work part time and get at least 25-30hrs a week which is great, I wasn't treated as the "new girl". Mangers are very willing to work with your schedule. I love working here (:

    Cons

    Sometimes I would get scheduled to close and then open the very next day, which wasn't ideal.

    Pros

    TJ Maxx offers great employee discounts, and a strong community. Everyone there is your friend, and a lot of smiles will be shared.

    Cons

    TJ Maxx is very unsatisfying when it comes to employee satisfaction. I requested 4 weeks in advance that I have my school finals week off, and when they forgot to give it to me, I was told to "Find a way to deal with it." They had me working from 5:00PM-11:30PM Monday-Friday that week, hurting my study time.
    TJ Maxx also had a lot of hard work, but pays and will continue to pay the lowest salary possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more human to your employees.
