    Pros

    Great culture, values and standards. Great company to move up and advance in, if you work hard.

    Cons

    Heavy in workplace politics, if one person doesn’t like you it’ll be hard to advance.

    I have been working at TJX Canada full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Flexible schedule - Good deal on merchandise if you like shopping

    Cons

    - Prices and discounts can be vary from store to store which confuses customers and then bring to angry customers. - Very small employee's discount - Way too many angry customers and fraudulents which is depressing to see it everyday - Too many turnovers for sales associates. It's hard to get promoted to other positions because you're can't keep someone to replace your position. You're kind of ended up training... new associate all the time. - Misleading. This one is for me personally and I'm very disappointed.

    I worked at TJX Canada

    Pros

    As a Merchandising Assistant there was a lot of ownership of your business: you contacted your vendors, you analyzed reporting (if you wanted to) and you wrote all of your won POs

    Cons

    The Merchandising Assistant/Operations role is not a true pipeline to becoming a buyer it is more administrative than anything. To become a buyer you have to get into the PASE program and it is very competitive. I have watched people where were MAs for 4/5 years get repeatedly rejected for the program. How can someone who has successfully worked for you for 5 years not be qualified to move up? Then they would... recruit for the PASE program 22 years olds fresh out of school with business degrees. Those who chose to leave (after not getting into PASE) were often able to get Assistant Buyer roles at other companies and get on the buying career track because of the amount/quality of experience they had as MAs at TJX

    Advice to Management

    Create a true pipeline for those who want to become buyers and consider renaming "Merchandising Assistant/Operation" - it isn't an adequate representation of the role and it isn't competitive in the marketplace

    Relaxed culture. Brand new home office. Great work life balance.

    I have been working at TJX Canada full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people are very nice and helpful. If you make any mistakes everyone is usually all on board to help and have the patience to make you a better employee. The office is really nice. You learn a lot about the retail business and everything behind the scenes which is always interesting. Great work life balance, they really do care about balancing your personal and professional lives.

    Cons

    It's a very, very corporate culture. Sometimes it feels that people who are liked best are the ones that will move up in the company rather than those who are actually better at the job or even better technically skilled. It can feel like your development is being hindered by things as small as not smiling enough, even when you're doing great work.

    Advice to Management

    Don't pick favourites based on who sucks up more and listen to your associates concerns. You should be supporting and encouraging your internal talent!

    Current Employee - Customer Service Coordinator in Ottawa, ON

    I have been working at TJX Canada full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Work/Life balance is pretty good for retail. You make more then minimum wage for retail. Time off is easy to get.

    Cons

    Vacation is paid out twice a year even if your full time. Not paid for time off. Little amount of flex days or sick days.

    Advice to Management

    For full time employees you should be offering accumulated vacation time to be used by dec 31. If you don’t use it you lose or get paid out for the remaining time you have. More paid sick days or flex time. 2 days a year is not enough.
