    There are minimal advancement opportunities.

    Allow all interested employees a fair opportunity to advance.

    As a seasonal employee my experience was limited but I enjoyed the team I worked with as well as the company itself.

    Pros

    good coworkers, flexible hours, easy to request time off, good opportunities for raises/promotions

    Cons

    Shifts could be boring at times, some rude customers, closing the store was never fun

    Advice to Management

    I think management could be a little more understanding when it comes to selling the TJX Rewards Cards. I know you are supposed to ask every single customer, but most of them blow you off no matter how well you try and present it. And some customers are just straight up rude about it. I would push to sell them all the time and I was lucky to get one every shift. Just because an employee isn't getting a lot of them doesn't mean they aren't trying.

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

    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 Management

    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.

  7. ok if you need a job

    Pros

    schedule is kind of flexable.

    Cons

    low pay, horrible raises, even with a great review. They will get you to "drink the koolade" to get you to accept a job, but the promises end there

    Advice to Management

    Need to listen to store management.

  8. It was a good first job for me. It's dependable, stable and all that jazz

    Pros

    Higher than minimum wage, hires quickly, can learn several parts of the store.

    Cons

    Sometimes your manager can place your worth as an employee based on how many credit applications you got from customers that day. Also, promotions can be difficult if you're younger. Also, the discount is very low.

    Advice to Management

    The store manager was great, she was friendly and involved. They have a lot of managers, so there's always one or two there and they're pretty useful.

    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.
