    I have been working at TJX Companies

    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 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
