    Pros

    Only a 10% discount offered to employees

    Cons

    The company hires a large amount of college grads because the turnover is so high. In the beginning of training, they make it seem like everyone wants you to succeed, but the day you come out of training there is no room for error in any way and everyone's attitude changes. The culture is extremely catty, cliquey, and fake. Managers play favorites and that is the only way to get promoted. The job does not pay high enough for the amount of work put in and there is NO work life balance for anyone without kids. Only about 20% of the grads hired for this position end up staying past a year. Management makes you feel completely incompetent for any mistake, and HR is loyal to the managers opinions.

    Pros

    10% discount everyday as an employee and every now and then 20%. Holiday pay after a certain amount of time of working there.

    Cons

    No idea or way of tracking what's in the store so we have physically look for everything in store. Not a whole lot of associates work in one day so expect to do a lot yourself (at busier stores).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There has to be a way we can look on the register or carry some sort of handheld device to keep track of everything( merchandise). Have better headset for us to communicate with.

    I have been working at TJX Companies full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Having come from the retail background, I find the DC atmosphere refreshing. Work a 4 day week, and if overtime is necessary, you are compensated for your time. I have been working for about 7 months and love it so far. There's a lot to learn, but the on boarding experience was positive and comprehensive. Benefits are good, nothing to complain about!

    Cons

    The DC works as a union environment, so some of the situations with associates can be challenging. Keep in mind, there is stress at any job, but nothing that is unmanageable. Otherwise, I have no complaints and generally enjoy my job!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    So far, management has been very helpful and seem to function with an open door policy. I feel that I can voice any concerns, and they will listen. I feel that management really appreciates the effort of the associates and the supervisors, and reward them accordingly. I couldn't ask for a more welcoming environment.
