    Pros

    great clothes and good people!

    Cons

    The pay is low for this area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The bay area is very expensive to live. The pay rate does not balance for rent, food and shelter.

    Pros

    Great people, cheap products, and great training standards. I really love the people at TJ, and the willingness to help. The atmosphere is great and everyone usually has a great timer

    Cons

    Company ownership just changed, and many of the procedures are changing... Also, you must must must MUST sell TJX Rewards Credit Cards. Also, you have a checklist of things to go over each transaction

    Will you be using your tj card
    did you want to open one
          Just so you know, for ever 200 you spend you get a 10 dollar reward certificate
           No annual fees, or monthly charges
             All points accumulate and never expire, same with rewards
               It only takes 3 minutes to apply, and be approved
            With the mastercard, every 1000 dollars outside the store spent, earns a 10 dollar reward certificate
    did you want to enroll in the tj rewards acess program
    did you want to make a donation to ____ (if applicable)
    did you want to buy a gift card
    were you highly satisfied

    all of this is supposed to be said during a transaction, as well as promoting healthy and friendly conversation with the customers, and following a specific ringing sequence... when these are not followed, they drill you about it. of course, gift cards, rewards access, and asking if they were satisfied are not as crucial

    Pros

    Friendly People

    Good corporate amenities

    Cons

    Slightly below market salary and benefits
    Some areas easier to get promoted

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just take care of your "favorites". There are talented people being overlooked for the few promotions given out.

    I have been working at TJX Companies

    Pros

    With no true competition in the market, you really can't find better job security elsewhere. They remain true to their core values within every aspect of the corporation, making it easy to believe in and feel good about the work your doing/what you are selling.

    Cons

    True corporation, making it very difficult and time consuming for any changes to be fully implemented. Further, salaries reflect their off-price mentality...

    I have been working at TJX Companies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It is easy work to do, the warehouse is located right of RT 93. People are somewhat friendly. They do offer health insurance and all employees benefit from the employee discount at all of their stores.

    Cons

    Compensation is low. Most of their hire help comes from temp agencies. The temps basically get paid the same as the perm employees. Not too flexible when it comes to taking time off that you have earned.
    The warehouse is one of the dirtiest places I've worked taking in consideration that they handle edible goods, items for babies and clothing.
    There are no female managers at their warehouses.
