    Pros

    staff are like family. you never feel left out

    Cons

    they sometimes overwork you

    Advice to Management

    pay better attention to your staff. stop spreading one person so thin that they feel like they're about to break. Just because someone gets a department done fast, or you feel like they'll be able to handle it doesnt mean you should reduce their hours. Increase the contracted hours of the staff that have been working in tkmaxx for over a certain period of time, instead of keeping us on the same contract for over two years and then giving new staff a higher contract than us from the beginning.
