    Cons

    little growth for Merchandise Assistants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring assistants out of of college because in a year or two they will want more. TJX is unwilling to give them that.

    I worked at TJX Companies part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    As an entry level sales associate, you are expected to get a minimum wage, since most retail clothing stores are like this anyway. The benefits are u will be able to gain few customer service experiences and techniques but most of the time you just repeat everything you've already know. And plus if you actually like shopping at price deducted retail stores like marshalls or tjmax, working there would be a huge plus because you get employees discount and sometimes when u reach a certain sales goal you get more discounts.

    Cons

    Sometimes the employees and supervisors there can be very unfriendly, depends on which area u work in. You are expected to get at least a tjx card every week or every day you have shifts. And lots of works for a minimum wage job. You would be at the cash register for let's say four hours and then they tell you to go fix a department and then they would call you back at the cash register again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The store managers are nice and friendly enough but some of their supervisors who's in charge of sales associates can be very unfriendly and sarcastic.

    I worked at TJX Companies part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This is a fun store to work at and the associates and customers are generally friendly. There is a lot of variety in the work you have to do, and it is very fast-paced. I enjoyed working at this store.

    Cons

    The company asks a lot of associates. It is almost impossible to live up to all their expectations. There are not enough people to keep the sales floor looking as good as it should. Work is not evenly distributed among the coordinators. Some departments have a lot more activity than others. There are often not enough cashiers available to assist at checkout.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is too tight on the payroll budget, and many of the processing/work time goals are unreasonable. They are obviously based on 'perfect world' scenarios, which is not reality.
