    I worked at TJ Maxx full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    My location had a great team. Easy scheduling for time off and a little extra discount on top of their great deals!

    Cons

    Starting at minimum wage makes it hard to increase your pay at a fast rate. They can only do % based increases once per year.

    I worked at TJ Maxx full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Although a retail management position, still able to have some work/life balance. Worked in multiple locations in NJ. Management teams in each store were great to work with. Always easy to switch schedules when needed. Stock room staff to process shipment to get ready for the floor. Stockroom staff would help run merchandise to floor if available.

    Cons

    Six days a week work weeks after Thanksgiving. Depending on the one day off a week, might be 9 or 10 days in a row.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    I have been working at TJ Maxx full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I have worked at two different locations, in different cities and they work great with school schedules!

    Cons

    It's retail. Sometimes the hours aren't going to be the best, unless you get a full time coordinator position in which you are guaranteed a set number of hours. But if you know what you're doing and can positively contribute to the growth of the business, you're more likely to get more hours.

    Pros

    Environment is positive and upbeat
    Hours are flexible
    Employees are recognized and rewarded for their efforts

    Cons

    It is annoying to have to push the TJ Maxx rewards credit card onto the customers
    Raises are not very good, 28 cents at the most
    Some of the policies of TJ Maxx are stupid, for example a mere 99 cent discount for damaged goods

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire associates with positive attitudes.
