    I worked at TJX Companies

    Pros

    This company provides continuing education for it's employees. They are also consistent in each store with company rules and regulations, the manager does not make the rules as they go.

    Cons

    The challenge is understaffed and some DSM's need to be more hands on in the stores.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to be more supportive.

    Former Employee - Loss Prevention Detective in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at TJX Companies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working Loss Prevention presented excellent opportunities to assume a leadership position and developed a great rapport with employees and the store management staff. My job responsibilities emphasized assess protection, and employee safety and awareness. The culture was relaxed but professional, and an open door policy was encouraged to each employee, thus providing a platform for great communication.

    Cons

    The only thing that I would consider a "con" was that some of our customer service policies were too laxed and unscrupulous customers were finding ways to circumvent the policies and take advantage of the store - which really bothered me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think that there are a lot of employees who actually care and who are not there just to make a paycheck. There were a lot of interesting ideas being proposed to combat shrinkage within the company, but few were ever seriously considered being implemented. I think as a company grows, so should some of its policies be revised to accommodate that growth.

    I have been working at TJX Companies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people I work with are quite lovely. Some of the regular customers are very nice people as well. Management works with your schedule which is very helpful in a college town.

    Cons

    Management is rarely on the same page, don't always keeps up with corporate guidelines which causes mass chaos before visits. Pay seems like it should be much higher for the amount of work you're given.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Paying more would help retain associates, as well and educating management further, and making sure that ALL new associates are properly trained.
