    Pros

    Really nice and welcoming co-workers, and a great focus on work-life balance! As an intern you get a lot of great experience and are really treated like part of the team, which is unique for such a big company.

    Cons

    Honestly not much to complain about, it's a great company to work for!

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for all the great experience and opportunities!

    I have been working at TJX Companies part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I would say a pro is the people that are within the company they are truly great people.

    Cons

    Got to be honest there are a lot more cons than pros there is no benefits for part time workers, management is pretty awful and overall the pay isn’t that great either

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to educate members of management on better techniques to teach and support associates and promote a healthy working environment. I would also suggest offering additional benefits for part time workers it’s not like we don’t do the exact same work everyone else does

    I have been working at TJX Companies part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The employees and the management team I work with have grown phenomenally in the past year. We went from a frantic, stressful environment, to a completely organized and highly efficient machine in a short amount of time.

    Cons

    Stressful amounts of merchandise to work with can be overwhelming. Occasional unpleasant customers can put a damper on the day, but it is few and far between.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push efficiency through team work, strong scheduling, and employees willing to commit to the work.

    I worked at TJX Companies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Great President, Job Security (not in IT), Many months of casual dress, On-premise Day Care (in Framingham), Complimentary shuttle service between buildings and to and from train stations, Top Notch Cafeterias and gyms

    Cons

    Low turnover allows less than competent individuals to progress up the ladder, Less than perfect salary and/or vacation time, Nepotism at its finest in IT! Stressed atmosphere in IT but not in other divisions.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to IT management is to appreciate your groups and only promote qualified associates. STOP paying contractors so much more than associates; associates have the company's best interest at heart and really care what works, what doesn't and how the company continues.
