    Pros

    I loved the people I got to work with. I enjoyed most of management. The 20% discount was nice, made me shop there more and spend most of my paycheck sometimes haha.

    Cons

    Absolutely hated having to push the "TJX rewards card". I was required to get 3 "no"s per transaction. I felt like I was badgering the customers and I caught slack when I didn't ask. Its a credit card, don't let "rewards" fool you. We were told to offer 20% off to anyone who applied but then it was changed to only those who were approved. It was just frustrating because most of the people who were applying only for the discount weren't going to get approved.

    Advice to Management

    Do not make the cashiers force the credit card down the customer's throat, it makes them and us uncomfortable.

  8. the pay wouldn't be terrible if you could get more than 10 hours per week

    Pros

    Depending on your store, management can be great or horrible. The scheduling/availability flexibility is pretty good to sales associates. Most of customers at my store are pretty much "regulars" & are all great. Many I know by name and are a pleasure to assist. One of my favorite things is helping customers find what they want/need, so being on the floor is always great!

    Cons

    Raises have not been great... I have exceeded expectations in all categories and have received minimal annual raises. Less than $3 in nearly 8 years. Also there are no real positions/areas to grow in the store (at least my location )

    Advice to Management

    Better raises would be motivating. Considering we have now raised the minimum wage for starting Tjmaxx employees, it is disconcerning to me to know brand new people who have no knowledge can be making almost as much as me right off the bat.
