    Pros

    Free gift cards, fun days to encourage the stores employees, flexible work schedule

    Cons

    Quotas to get credit cards, customers who think they are shopping at a high end department store, employees that do not care

    Advice to Management

    Have more fun days and contests to make getting credit cards more profitable and rewarding for the employees working to get them

    Pros

    Friendly staff, young and old, fast paced, meet new customers everyday, and easy job for retail.

    Cons

    They aleays want to push their rewards card on every single customer, whicchbis really a redit card. And i feel bad, and its annoying to some. And i felt as though i wasnt taken into consideration into moving up in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Pick the right people to move in the company, staff dependable people and not just anyone who will call out when it comes to holidays and parties.

    Benefits are okay, pay is decent depending on your role, and management seems to be on top of their game.

    Pros

    The location that I was working at was within walking distance from my home, if I had to take the bus I would not have accepted a min wage position simply because they only give decent (20+) hours a week during the holidays.

    Cons

    If you're not a high school student, trust me you can do better. I am a 28year old college graduate with 8 years of retail experience and wasn't compensated accordingly.

    Advice to Management

    Make the job and the wages, and hours worth my time, and stop being so cliquey.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, especially for someone who loves retail and meeting new people all the time. It is also great when you have a manager who loves seeing their team succeed.

    Cons

    Lack of hours is always the issue. On a weekly schedule it is sometimes hard to make more than twenty hours....working part time.

    Pros

    The company values all employees. The people, the processes, the benefits, the treasure hunt - I love it all. The special discount days are a bonus also.

    Cons

    I cannot think of one thing that I do not like about working here. My experience has been wonderful so far :)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Keep valuing every employee and invest in them. Store managers should be more involved in succession planning.

    Pros

    TJX has a maternity policy, that is a pro. The policy itself needs improvement. I am a corporate associate and have experienced maternity leave at TJX. The description below is reflective of existing 2015 family leaves policies.

    Cons

    TJX's Maternity policy is complicated and could be more comprehensive. There are no official paternity or adoption leave policies.
    The Federal Medical Leave Act protects your job for 12 weeks following the birth of your child. This does not mean it is paid. TJX's maternity leave policy is contingent on enrollment in short term disability. After a year of service you are eligible for paid maternity leave through short term disability. Short term disability provides partially paid leave for 6-8 weeks. 8 weeks for cesarian delivery and 6 weeks for vaginal birth. Short term disability covers 100% of pay for 4 weeks and 60% of pay for weeks 5-8. Accrued sick time hours may be used during the medical leave portion of maternity leave (that first 6-8 weeks) to cover the 40% gap.
    For the second portion of maternity leave (4-6 additional weeks under FMLA protection) only accrued vacation hours may be used to supplement pay. Depending on the time of year and length of service with the company, an associate may have anywhere from 0-4 weeks vacation hours accrued. It's typical for an associate to have at least 2 weeks unpaid during the 12 weeks of FMLA maternity leave.

    Advice to Management

    The lengthy policy explanation demonstrates why it needs to be streamlined- it's too complicated and confusing. It would be great if it was a simple as- 12 weeks full pay!
