    Former Employee - Summer Intern in Framingham, MA

    I worked at TJX Companies

    Pros

    Tight-nit team. Heavily focused on work, but they like to have fun every once in a while. Provided an opportunity for me to tackle projects that I was unfamiliar with and had a strong support network at my disposal.

    Cons

    I was only there for a few weeks during the summer, so I did not get a full experience of working there, but it is difficult to see myself working in the Corporate Finance dept of TJX for the rest of my life

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Again, I was not there long enough to get a firm grasp of the management hierarchy, but everything seemed to be running smoothly during the summer.

    I have been working at TJX Companies full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Genuine concern for employees of all levels, a culture of mentoring and empowering, not negativity and termination, A career not a job.

    Cons

    Hiring management from outside without correctly vetting or insuring TJX culture is a good fit for the new hire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course with culture pulse, do not allow other companies culture contaminate ours.

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

    Pros

    I love the people I work with. I also feel like there is room to grow within the company.

    Cons

    The pay is the only negative thing about working for marshalls. If you are single and live on your own you could never make it in this position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think you should keep encouraging management to promote within the company. It makes employees want to turn a job into a career!

    Pros

    the discount even though it's only 10%

    Cons

    You work for nothing. Part time don't get benefits. They would tell you that you going to move up but you don't all talk in this company

    You get a first look at all the new merchandise coming in. You get an employee discount.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Pittston, PA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Pittston, PA

    I worked at TJX Companies full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Good, helpful coworkers (for the most part)
    - Always a new challenge to tackle

    Cons

    - Management would frequently tell you one thing but then reprimand you for it later, despite it being what they asked for down to the detail.

    - I made the mistake of mentioning I heard rumors I was going to be deployed overseas with my Army unit sometime in the future (about 7 months) to one of my coworkers. Pretty soon afterwards, managements attitude toward me changed.

    All of a sudden one evening, I was pulled in to the office and told I was being let go because I wasn't finishing the training goals in time. This was in spite of the fact that I volunteered to take the tests sooner than mandated in order to accomplish what they wanted.

    It is my firm belief that they let me go due to the fact I could possibly be deployed. Which, by the way, is illegal. Had I had a bit more proof of this taking place, I would have taken it much higher up the food chain and sought answers, perhaps legally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Former Employee - Sales and Cash Office Associate
    Former Employee - Sales and Cash Office Associate

    I worked at TJX Companies part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Majority of coworkers and managers worked together well. It was a very fast paced, quick thinking environment. Training was sufficient given the workload of coordinators and managers. The store I was at was quite flexible and really worked with me to keep me on as an employee during school.

    Cons

    Some exercises were not very productive, very pushy of credit cards. It was frustrating at times due to the over abundant announcements for something that no one on the lower level was rewarded with. Customers tended to get frustrated for the same reasons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Approach training a little more positively, compensation was definitely not high during my tenure but understandable given the industry. Happy workers can make a significant difference and better attitudes need to come from the top down.
