    I worked at TJX Companies as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Super friendly and helpful people. Its sometimes called the collaborative buying office for good reason. The work-life balance is amazing, there are summer social events, birthday celebrations at the end of each month, free goodies to take home, but most of all--the people are the nicest people you will meet. and very diverse too. i met people from all across the country. I LOVEEEEE TJX Companies. And as an intern, i got to video conference with the CEO. It is an incredible opportunity to have. The company culture is second to none.

    Cons

    I can't really say there are any cons. Its in the nice part of downtown LA. Depending on where you live, i guess traffic might be a problem. i have nothing but great things to say about the company.

    I worked at TJX Companies

    Pros

    Loved it here. Worked with a great group of people and managers . Everyone always helped you with what you didn't know.

    Cons

    The only challenge I had was keeping up with customers during lunch time. There was not enough breaks and the pay raise came very slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do something about your pay .

    I worked at TJX Companies

    Pros

    Long tenured associates, fair culture progressing in terms of software management in some areas but cling to old ways

    Cons

    Slow to adopt technology or to make decisions, lack of focus inhibits progress......."If its not broken don't fix it" will make it unappealing to millennial workforce

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adopt change and embrace millennial spirit

    I worked at TJX Companies part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Everyone at the Greenbrier Chesapeake store is very friendly and they work hard to ensure that you understand your tasks early on.

    Cons

    Push too much for TJX Credit Cards (though I know that it's just traveling down from upper-management) but a break would be nice every once and while.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give employees a break regarding the TJX Rewards cards and give more incentives to those who regularly meet their goals.

    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.
