    I worked at T.K. Maxx part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I loved working here. I last worked her for the Xmas season 2016. But had previously worked here in 1998-2002.
    Great atmosphere, you don't feel awkward or stupid if you make a mistake as all the colleages work together as a team and help each other. The customers are all lovely mostly more well off people. The management are so approachable and fair. All. In all a great place to work. Lunch and breaks are fair too.

    Cons

    Short hour contracts. Not enough time for tidying the store after closing

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing cos it's all good

    Pros

    I work at a new store, so met fellow colleagues whilst training at another store, helped get store ready for opening. Fellow colleagues are friendly and we have a laugh, was taken on, on a 16 contract but so far have done longer hours each week.
    Management are fun to work with and store looks amazing.

    Some fellow colleagues need to work harder.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. Amazing team
