None to report for this position.

Cons

You work 50 hours a week and get paid for 40hrs. During the Christmas Holiday Season, you work 60 hours a week and only get paid for 40hrs. You work 14 straight days before end of year inventory, but only get paid for five days.

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

    Pros

    willing to promote and mostly friendly people

    Cons

    no hours, not enough pay, any time there was an issue no one cared to fix it, lazy workers, hardly any english spoken, left to your own to figure things out

    Advice to Management

    better training, growth and treat everyone equal and promote the right people, hold mgrs accountable, dont let them sit at the end of the counter to do nothing but bark orders at the already hard working people.

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

    Pros

    I have been so pleased with TJ Maxx, the employees are amazing. Most places have cliques that make it very difficult to enjoy your work unless you are part of the clique. Management will work with you if you need time off. It's exciting to see new merchandise coming off the trucks. The store changes so often that it breaks up the monotony that you'd find in most jobs.

    Cons

    Promotions don't seem to be very easy to come by. Sometimes its difficult to get things done because there aren't enough people scheduled when large trucks come in. It's not unusual to have a truck come in and only 2 people scheduled in the backroom including the BRC. That means the rest of the employees have to spend less time on what they should be working on and help out to get the product ready to go out on the floor.

    Advice to Management

    Consider the employees who have put some time into an education when filling positions for coordinators. Some of us employees have put a lot of time into an education and are working as regular associates in the store instead of being considered for a promotion. This is quite frustrating when we are there in hopes of climbing the ladder within the company and instead of getting promotions, we are seeing people that have considerably less training or education being promoted instead.
