    Good hours, easy job, managment nightmare.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at TJX Companies

    Pros

    The hours are flexible so you can get time off to go to school. The job is also really easy to do and they hire almost anyone even if you have little work experince.

    Cons

    Management is horrible and they take zero action. When you go to them with problems they told myself and my other coworkers to suck it up and to keep our heads down. The work environment is also very unprofessional. On a personal note I was told by managment I'm not allowed to use the men's bathroom even though I am an asexual nonbinary trans person. I've also had employees spread rumors and speculate about my sexual orientation and preferred pronouns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managment needs to step up and hold employees accountable for their actions. Employees have continously been late, not doing their job, wasting company time, saying hurtful racist/sexist/transphobic things and no one has faced any form of reprocussions.

    Pros

    The employee discount was nice, provided me with lots of customer service experience.

    Cons

    There's really no real room to move up the ladder unless you're willing to spend years and years working there. One of my coworkers had been working the same position for over 8 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure the people you hire are actually people friendly.

    Pros

    The coworkers are very nice, very hardworking.

    Cons

    Everything.....the District Managers always criticize...nothing good to say, a lot of power trips with the upper brass!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people, they are talented individuals. The District Managers have a hidden agenda, they don't always have your best interest at heart, too bad they don't play fair.

    Hire REAL managers instead of just temporary ones that only want to be buyers.

    Good Management, hour flexibility, stability is never a worry.

    Cons

    Raises are small, Multiple responsabilities that aren't truly compensated. Younger hard working associates doesn't have much reward

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation in raises for associates that go above and beyond and not only the ones you can promote but also the part time associates that bend over backwards for the company.
