    I have been working at T.K. Maxx part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great pay at £8.15 ph as an experienced associate. If you work hard for them they will reward you and they appreciate your hard work. Can move up through the company pretty quickly, Looking at assistant manager in 5 years if worked for! Staff morale can be very good most of the time. Very family oriented and will support working mums.

    Cons

    Long days, hard work. Customer can be pretty rude and no appreciation. Flexible working required unless you have a really good excuse/reason.

    Advice to Management

    Recognise when your staff have done a good job. Don’t be to much of a jobsworth!

    I worked at T.K. Maxx part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great atmosphere if you enjoy hard work, getting offered extra hours, decent pay for retail, good management, good teamwork culture.

    Cons

    Finding out your roster only 1 week in advance (sometimes 1 day), last minute changes to roster (without prior notice), offering 8 hour contracts. Stretched thin with hours. A lot of people on the Rising Stars program with not a lot of actual progression.

    I have been working at T.K. Maxx part-time

    Pros

    Incredibly friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Comprehensive in training, always willing to help. Good pay for the work and the nice bonus of immediate discount in store. From other staff members, it has a great system for working up the ladder if that is your interest.

    Cons

    Occasionally running late at the end of the day ensuring the store is tidy. It is a busier period, though, with it nearing Christmas.

    Pros

    The pay at tk maxx is pretty good and the managers at most of the stores i have worked at treat the associates well.

    One of the main downsides of working there is having to constantly pick up clothes that have been dropped on the floor.

    Be patient with new associates and remember to respect each associate that works there in order to gain respect yourself.
