    Pros

    Great people, cheap products, and great training standards. I really love the people at TJ, and the willingness to help. The atmosphere is great and everyone usually has a great timer

    Cons

    Company ownership just changed, and many of the procedures are changing... Also, you must must must MUST sell TJX Rewards Credit Cards. Also, you have a checklist of things to go over each transaction

    Will you be using your tj card
    did you want to open one
          Just so you know, for ever 200 you spend you get a 10 dollar reward certificate
           No annual fees, or monthly charges
             All points accumulate and never expire, same with rewards
               It only takes 3 minutes to apply, and be approved
            With the mastercard, every 1000 dollars outside the store spent, earns a 10 dollar reward certificate
    did you want to enroll in the tj rewards acess program
    did you want to make a donation to ____ (if applicable)
    did you want to buy a gift card
    were you highly satisfied

    all of this is supposed to be said during a transaction, as well as promoting healthy and friendly conversation with the customers, and following a specific ringing sequence... when these are not followed, they drill you about it. of course, gift cards, rewards access, and asking if they were satisfied are not as crucial

    Don't just take care of your "favorites". There are talented people being overlooked for the few promotions given out.

    Pros

    Working Monday thru Friday 9- 5 was great. The discount was always a good thing!

    Cons

    Very hard to get to the corporate level from the stores. Not alot of promoting from within. Job openings in the office are not made available to the store associates. The training that is given is not the greatest. Kind of hung out to dry. Too many chiefs in the Corp. Office. Managers, Managers of, AVP's, SAVP's ....... Too much back stabbing in the offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    remove a few layers of management.... might help. Not much of a chance to grow

    Pros

    None anymore. The few good things they did away with.

    Cons

    Nepotism, there is no full time unless you're salaried upper management, you will get skipped over to advance to coordinator, the ONLY advancement in the company apparently, despite good worker reviews, pathetic raises to match their bare-minimum wage, work place bullying, disorganized, employee drama, management drama, ineffective managers that shouldn't be there. If the air conditioners fail in April, they will get them fixed the last week of September - just before cranking the heat up to 80 degrees indoors while it's 64 degrees outside & only October.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's time to clean house before your workers unionize.

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

    Pros

    Working close with the potential product. Seeing new product. Working in a fashion atmosphere.

    Cons

    Disorganized. First month of training my supervisor didn't know who would be training me, at what time, or on what. Bounced around with so many different people didn't even know what I was learning. My buyers as well as other buyers talk down to their assistants disrespectfully all the time. If there is a miscommunication (even in your first week while you're learning) your buyers will not talk to you about it to help you improve, they go straight to your supervisor. Your supervisors are not helpful unless you act at certain times of the day. If you ask too late in the day they say you should have asked earlier. You get in trouble for everything that you did and didn't do. I have several friends who work there that would say the same and all of them have gone home crying multiple times.
    Unreasonable deadlines. Receiving all your work at 4:30 on a Friday and expected to get it done.
    Fake. Most people who are merchandise assistants want to be buyers. Everyone is out to get each other and will tell on you for EVERYTHING. Do not make friends here and be careful what you say to anyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell your buyers to treat their assistants with respect. When everyone in the building has respect for each other then everything always runs a lot more smoothly.
