    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.

    Pros

    -Meeting new people
    -Easy to learn
    - Fast pace environment, always something to do

    Cons

    -Pay is terrible
    -Manager watching behind you everyday
    -Manager gives a lot of pressure on promoting cards. If you can't get credit cards, they keep on asking and forces you to somehow come up with a way

    Advice to Management

    Understand it's hard to promote credit cards when regular shoppers already have, and new shoppers don't care in the economy. Don't always breath down employee's neck.
