    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.
