    I have been working at TJ Maxx part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    "There is a lot of team work. Coworkers are amazing. getting to meet people from all walks of life is really amazing."

    Cons

    "There is no consistency in terms of what one is supposed to do on a day -to- day basis . paying people minimum wage doesn't encourage employees at all. Discount sucks. Rarely recognize those employees giving there best."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Patience is key here. It's an okay place to learn how to deal with people.

  2.  

    Decent for a part time job but management needs to get on the same page and try to promote a better culture.

    I worked at TJ Maxx part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Part time, easy, flexible, mindless.

    Cons

    Boring, negative & condescending attitudes from co-workers and [some of] management, inconsistent enforcement of policies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please make sure you are consistent about not only informing employees of what the policies are but also enforcing them. Sometimes the smallest discrepancies completely change an employees opinion of a job/company. For Example, one manager tells an employee that the dress code is interpreted to mean one thing and then another manager yells at the same employee for wearing what the first manager said was acceptable. This causes the employee to start questioning management and their policies.
