Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at TJ Maxx full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Plenty of freedom with merchandising, no planograms to follow!

Cons

Pay does not match experience or workload.

Advice to Management

Contests promote favoritism, we constantly have repeat winners. Often other associates who perform at a higher level are overlooked because they choose not to run to a manager saying "Look what I did!" but go about their business doing the right thing simply because it's their job. Look for other means to inspire and acknowledge associates.

    Advice to Management

    Re train your management, new protocol for how many assistant managers there can be

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at TJ Maxx part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Managers treated associates like human beings

    Very accepting when it came to appearance (dreads, 2 inch plugs, facial piercings, different colored hair, etc.[I even got away with wearing patches of bands on my dress shirts])

    Wear whatever you wanted, for the most part. It of course had to be work-appropriate.

    Definite raise especially if you play the "game."

    Cons

    TJX Rewards Card.. I personally felt terrible asking people if they would like to be enslaved by TJ.

    gossip for days

    Advice to Management

    The managers at this particular location are hopefully still the same awesome managers, if they are gone, major loss. TJX cards are a burden, and it is not benefiting the associate whatsoever, just you and everyone else higher.
