    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 have been working at TJX Companies part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Coworkers, customers, & management were fantastic 99% of the time (at a great Marshalls branch in Cincinnati)

    Cons

    10% discount, strange. unnecessary rules, low potential for advancement or full time employment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more authentic in your interactions with customers and employees rather than using an obvious fake, over the top, robotic method in your communications. It is nice that you're trying to be friendly, but if it isn't genuine sounding then it's hard to build trust.

    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 have been working at TJX Companies (less than an year)

    Pros

    Interesting environment you'll be cross trained so you could work in all areas of the store.they are very patient when training new employees. Employees and some mangers are very welcoming to new and old workers. Store Manager is a little intimidating but he gets the job. great first retail experience.

    Cons

    very unorganized,no respect for time, schedules always a mess.always hiring but never seem to have enough employees.constantly over payroll. Layway space is too small so customers things are constantly misplace.laway line is too long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need new system for layaway. Make sure there at less two people in each department. Need fix the over payroll issue. If mangers see something on the ground and it right infront of them please pick it up. Not ask the employee to pick it up that all I ask.(dont walk pass it !) fix the schedule and respect everyone's time.

    Pros

    Full time workers earn benefits.

    Cons

    Company is confused. One hand they promote work and life balance. It does not exist. Especially, within the store environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Associate surveys for your management team. The company can learn a lot from hearing the truth. Look at the rate of promotion within the ASM which are the future leaders since the Store managers are very much older and are running the business like it is still 1900's. Look at your leaders, see if their core values are aligned with the company. Don't ignore the signs. Follow the trail , face it and make the right call.
