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

    Pros

    I think the community is the only reason to want to stay the people are truly amazing. Only other pro is you get 10% off everything

    Cons

    There are a lot management is a huge issue most don’t know what exactly they are doing and they push you to get cards but with no real reward

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to rethink some of the jobs because I was hired as a sales associate and now I have been taught how to do pretty much everything in the store because they don’t have enough people. That’s a problem you get a job to do a specific task. Also have a good incentive so people will want to get the tjx card. Another thing is give part time employees actual benefits because how I see it we do the same work somebody working full time does don’t we deserve something too?
