    Pros

    If you're looking to work on a fun team of hardworking women, this is the place for you. It's a fun, girly environment with good energy- though this depends on the team you're placed on. Free housing is a MAJOR plus.

    Cons

    Set 3-5 year track in planning before becoming a buyer, homogenous work environment, occasionally catty, judgmental environment. (Felt very sorority-like)

    Advice to Management

    Different career tracks catered to individual strengths, more creative freedom.

    I worked at TJX Companies part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great work environment and the managers are remarkably helpful and friendly.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the working hours are highly up to the discretion of the manager so there is no guaranteed hourly schedule. But of course this is the nature of a part-time job so this could be a factor that could limit your availability to grow your resume or pursue a degree or other internship/job opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend establishing a somewhat stable weekly work hour schedule for employees that have passed their on the job probationary period rather than having them constantly worrying if they will be called in for work or not. This could lead to a much more productive and stable workgroup and could benefit the company in the long run.
