    I have been working at TJX Companies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Full time workers earn benefits.

    Cons

    Company is confused. One hand they promote work and life balance. It does not exist. Especially, within the store environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Associate surveys for your management team. The company can learn a lot from hearing the truth. Look at the rate of promotion within the ASM which are the future leaders since the Store managers are very much older and are running the business like it is still 1900's. Look at your leaders, see if their core values are aligned with the company. Don't ignore the signs. Follow the trail , face it and make the right call.

    Former Employee - Merchandise Assistant in Framingham, MA

    I worked at TJX Companies full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    A way to get into the company. You can wear jeans. Coworkers are friendly willing to help. Good place to work. Bosses were friendly and care about the employees. Good benefits. You must take an hour lunch and you work 9 to 5.

    Cons

    You need to be super duper organized. Tons of e-mails and e-mailing. If you can learn tricks for Microsoft outlook to organize your e-mails you should. Lots of data entry. Repetitive. You are at the computer alot. The position is a lot of work and not worth it for what it pays. Everyone wants to be a buyer. Try another route if you can

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A lot of Merchandise Assistants need to work 2 jobs. I feel this unacceptable at a 30 billion dollar company. The CEO should find away to make sure these hardworking individuals are paid enough so they dont need to work two jobs. Training could be improved. Where and who you train with makes a big difference. Computer programs are outdated need to be updated improved and streamlined.

    20% every three to four months

    Advancement isn't to good

    Brewster: try to keep all your employees tame. Many think of themselves as bosses even the young ones! The system isn't very strict way to easy.

    Pros

    Everyone at the Greenbrier Chesapeake store is very friendly and they work hard to ensure that you understand your tasks early on.

    Cons

    Push too much for TJX Credit Cards (though I know that it's just traveling down from upper-management) but a break would be nice every once and while.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give employees a break regarding the TJX Rewards cards and give more incentives to those who regularly meet their goals.
