More Pros and Cons

  1. "It's Retail"

    I have been working at HomeGoods part-time

    Pros

    Usually you meet a lot of nice people, they're flexible if they understand you have school and other obligations

    Cons

    Management changes often for some reason, other retail jobs offer 2-3 dollars more than place does, it depends on the manager but you don't always feel appreciated, management fails to train new employees properly, discount is close to nothing

    Advice to Management

    train thoroughly

    I have been working at HomeGoods part-time

    Pros

    -Employees are nice
    -10% discount at all TJX companies

    Cons

    -Management is a disaster. No communication between managers.
    -Can't seem to schedule you within your availability. I'm in school, and even with that I had a very open schedule, and so far I've been scheduled 2 back to back days that are outside of my availability. When I called my store to sort it out, I was yelled at by a manager for not being able to work
    -Some employees were trained. I was not, and was thrown onto the register my first day and the store was extremely busy. Keep in mind I was not trained on anything and had to learn as I go, which resulted in some upset customers.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with each other. It makes the environment a lot easier and more relaxed when everyone is on the same page. Make sure ALL employees have had the same training. Never throw someone on a register if they haven't been trained to use it. While I was able to learn somewhat quickly, not everyone can, and if done incorrectly, it can result in a loss of funds for the store.

    I worked at HomeGoods part-time

    Pros

    Flexible hours, different jobs within the store

    Cons

    Early shifts, impolite customers, poor leadership from management, no formal training, different tasks working counterproductively with each other. Each day posed similar problems, yet each day was treated as a new, unforeseen, difficulty

    Advice to Management

    Coordinate better to more effectively lead the team. Properly train all associates in their specific jobs so as to make all jobs work cohesively instead of disjointed

    Pros

    Great staff and pretty great management. Working with the HG team is really wonderful when everyone does their job.

    Cons

    the demand of work is a tad more expected than most part time. Mainly due to higher pay they expect a more determined group of staff.
