I worked at TJ Maxx part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

You get first pick of all new merchandise before it hits the sales floor, co-workers are super cool and don't mind picking up your shift and switching days when needed, always met interesting customers, you get to shop as you work (sometimes), and there is room for promotion. You have a variety of older and younger co-workers and they become like family

Cons

Standing on your feet all day, dealing with rude customers and customers who put the money on the counter instead of your hand, cannot have your cellphone on you (like in high school), and the associate discount is only 10%(tax).

    I worked at TJ Maxx full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good growth potential due to expansion.
    Excellent sales gains

    Cons

    When CEO Meyrowitz began preaching accountability 2 years ago many upper management took that to continually look for the negative and write people up for that.
    They send you to many seminars on how to speak to and treat associates but then upper management does not use that teaching themselves when working with middle management. The company praises its "open door policy" but it does not extend above the District manager levellevel.

    Advice to Management

    Get positive! Look for the positive more frequently.
    Customer service will improve through adding payroll hours. Company has been cutting payroll for the last 13 years yet expects more.
