    I have been working at TJX Companies

    Pros

    10% discount everyday as an employee and every now and then 20%. Holiday pay after a certain amount of time of working there.

    Cons

    No idea or way of tracking what's in the store so we have physically look for everything in store. Not a whole lot of associates work in one day so expect to do a lot yourself (at busier stores).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There has to be a way we can look on the register or carry some sort of handheld device to keep track of everything( merchandise). Have better headset for us to communicate with.

    Former Employee - Buying Intern in Los Angeles, CA (US)

    I worked at TJX Companies as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Super friendly and helpful people. Its sometimes called the collaborative buying office for good reason. The work-life balance is amazing, there are summer social events, birthday celebrations at the end of each month, free goodies to take home, but most of all--the people are the nicest people you will meet. and very diverse too. i met people from all across the country. I LOVEEEEE TJX Companies. And as an intern, i got to video conference with the CEO. It is an incredible opportunity to have. The company culture is second to none.

    Cons

    I can't really say there are any cons. Its in the nice part of downtown LA. Depending on where you live, i guess traffic might be a problem. i have nothing but great things to say about the company.

    I worked at TJX Companies full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Employee discount on merchandise
    Little need to exercise the intellect

    Cons

    Managers strong-armed and insulted employees in order to motivate them
    Managers took credit and doled out criticism
    Minimal pay for associates
    Unvaried shifts resulted in monotonous tasks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch your language in terms of profanity, comments to female employees, communication with non-native English speaking employees
    You can get more out of your employees by showing them respect
