    Pros

    Nothing great. You could work a wide variety of hours and deal with a wide range of customer attitudes. Employee discount.

    Cons

    Low paying job, entry level retail. Not a lot of room for advancement and it usually required you to make a substantial move.

    Pros

    Flexible hours with easy rob requirements. You can have 4-5 hours shifts or 8 or up to 10 hour shifts

    Cons

    Managers weren't good. All 3 of them pushed way to hard for credit card openings. Always rotating between positions and having no say in where you work that day.

    Advice to Management

    Keep workers working the same area consistently so they can mow that area better. Don't push credit cards sooo much that it makes coming to work depressing

    Pros

    Flexible hours, decent pay, good management, easy job, great job for a High Schooler.

    Customers can be overbearing at times, not really any other cons aside from some shift change every now and again.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing!

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

    Pros

    Flexible hours which fits my school schedule. The company is opening new locations.

    Cons

    Too much work assigned to associates. Demand on associates is too high. Can be stressful dealing with managers and customers. Rare opportunity for upward mobility. Associates have only 10% discount(too small). Too much dependence on managers to groom and promote associates, so most managers don't promote associates even if they are qualified or deserve it.

    Advice to Management

    -Most part-time associates are in school and would love to work professionally for the company for salaries.Vacant positions should be advertised in-store and on a website for associates to know first before the public.
    -If associates move from sales representative to corporate positions, it will boost morale and people will be more committed.

    I worked at TJ Maxx full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get a 10% discount on every day of the week and they do 20% weekends every few months. If you're full time, you get full benefits after a year of being full time I.e. Health, dental and eye insurance, life insurance, 401K, and holiday pay. They do luncheons in rewards for meeting credit app goals and charity goals too.

    Cons

    A lot of hard work for very little reward. There's no commission. You have a very hard time having a life outside of work due to the crazy scheduling they do since you have to have open availability as a full timer. And when you try to leave for another job, they try to make you feel like you have more opportunities to advance you but you never will.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your associates. A lot of us work so very hard and it isn't good enough but the slackers get away with everything.
