    Pros

    sometimes friendly co workers?

    Cons

    coordinators insult you, managers dont manage, no hours, favorites, little pay, hours arent flexible, full time isnt an option, no benefits, no where to move up.

    Advice to Management

    hours are a big problem, schedule the hours evenly so there are no complaints of having 20 hours one week and 10 the next

    Pros

    If you love being able to walk a lot this is the job ! I've lost a good amount of weight from this and I'm proud ! But overall you learn a lot about this job and it's merchandise as well . Lots of unique nic nacs especially the home department !

    Cons

    A lot of the times all this company cares about is getting credit credit .. and credit . Also security for tjmax is terrible . Lots of theft that goes unseen . Also registers need a little bit of a upgrade ! To be more convenient for the customers.

    Advice to Management

    The managers at tjmax are alright I guess well most of them . I've had bad experiences with a few and all of them weren't my fault . I mean you got one that yells over the littlest things possible and does not know how to communicate with associates at all . Also known as verbal abuse . Sometimes I feel like I have to be a customer to get some respect from this place .

    I have been working at TJ Maxx part-time

    Pros

    A lot of the people are nice. Love the atmosphere of working in the store because there are so many nice things.

    Cons

    I'm in agreement with a previous review that some employees have a snarky attitude. If you work in dressing room, it is grueling, and they don't provide back-up (if it is really busy).

    Advice to Management

    Should do a better job of training. I felt my training was not that great.

    Pros

    We have favoritism in the store, Nothing is getting done about it. We lose a lot of good people because of some of the managers we have or had. I don't want my name bought up.

    Cons

    some one needs to talk to the managers there. Some people see what is going on. few people said something to talk to the managers or HR.

    Advice to Management

    Please don't be favoritism to people you work with. It's not far for other people that work there. we should be treat all the same.

    Pros

    can be chill sometimes. you build friendships and connections with your coworkers.

    Cons

    horrible pay. short break and sometimes they forget to send you. never schedule enough cashiers. cut hours way too much/ never have a set schedule. customers are a pain and managers are not helpful when it comes to dealing with them. also, if youre a cashier they don't offer you training on the floor. as a cashier you do the most work in the store and things are constantly changing.

    Advice to Management

    stop hiring people who are lazy and offer better training for your employees so that the ones that actually work dont have to stay an hour after closing to help others with their departments.

    Pros

    Repeat customers and co-workers are good people.

    Cons

    Management was consistent and it was confusing to the employees. Not enough praise for good work. Pressure to get TJ credit cards every time you were a cashier or worked in the Jewelry department.

    Advice to Management

    Be more positive with employers and have managers work together as a unit.
