    Excellent experience, excellent people.

    Summer Intern (Former Employee) Framingham, MA

    ProsWhile TJX's Merchandise Training Program is well-known, the company also provides great internship experiences in other functions of the company (IT, Marketing, eCommerce, etc.).

    I had a fantastic experience during the summer after my junior year; my department was filled with passionate people who were very welcoming and always willing to help out. Everyone is energetic, well-dressed, professional, and friendly. I learned a lot about marketing and it is a particularly useful experience for people interested in the retail industry. I would certainly return to this company given the opportunity.

    ConsHonestly, there are not many cons to report back on. Just that the internship ended and now I have to go through the application process again to try to get back in the company!
