    As a sales associate you work on a store floor, and that can get very boring and promotions can be a slow process.

    Advice to Management

    Nobody wants to sign up for a credit card so lets focus more on customers instead of credit cards -Every TJX employee ever

    Pros

    Best team, discount, access to new and cheap stuff, breaks in each shift, friendliness of management and associates, and many more.

    I have been working at TJ Maxx full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great pay including a bonus plan. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Not enough staffing in some of the stores due to lack of payroll. It seems difficult to grow your career to the next level of management.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to understand that not all stores are the same. Lower volume stores cannot run exactly the same as stores that have a larger management team and higher payroll budgets.
