    I worked at TJX Companies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at both a Marshall's and a HomeGoods store during my time with TJX. In hindsight I had a much more enjoyable work experience at Marshall's than I enjoyed at HomeGoods. Marshall's had a very positive work environment that I was happy to be a part of most days and employee morale was kept quite high. I can not say the same for HomeGoods unfortunately.

    Cons

    Obviously not every HomeGoods experience will be like mine, but I found a surprising lack of sympathy from HomeGoods management over my time there. They are hyper focused on sales and making cuts that they overlook the people they're managing.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on employee morale. In retail it is important to keep your front line happy because it reflects on everyone.

    Pros

    There were some nice people on the floor. Some of them are supportive and are willing to help.

    Cons

    Incentives make people mean to each other. Because there’s a grading system, associates will sometimes cheat others to get the favorable work so that they get the incentives. This creates a bad work environment and bad relationships among associates. Management also do not provide necessary tools to do the job. They are so tight on budget that some associates resort to buying their own equipment. Management also likes promising advancements to people but don’t deliver. Happened to several folks and it definitely created mistrust and disappointment.

    Advice to Management

    Live up to your word.
    Don’t promise promotion and not give it.
    Create a better incentive system that doesn’t influence bad work ethics and cukture to the associates.

    I worked at TJX Companies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    10%discount, travel, some responsibility, store visits

    Cons

    Managers does not care about developing its employees. If someone is behind, they treat him bad until he quits. They should be more selective in the way they choose its employees if they are going to treat them like that when they do not perform as wanted

    Advice to Management

    Develop your employees and engage diversity. Not every employee performs at the exact same pace.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, focus on strong customer service. Encouraged employee development by stressing a TJX card reward program for employees. Great coworkers.

    Cons

    The management at this particular branch was all over the place. I felt the work environment was disorganized and hectic.

    Advice to Management

    The managers at this particular branch could have been more cohesive. I was told to do one thing by one manager, another by another manager.
