    They want hires who are desperate to easily control.

    Pros

    None anymore. The few good things they did away with.

    Cons

    Nepotism, there is no full time unless you're salaried upper management, you will get skipped over to advance to coordinator, the ONLY advancement in the company apparently, despite good worker reviews, pathetic raises to match their bare-minimum wage, work place bullying, disorganized, employee drama, management drama, ineffective managers that shouldn't be there. If the air conditioners fail in April, they will get them fixed the last week of September - just before cranking the heat up to 80 degrees indoors while it's 64 degrees outside & only October.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's time to clean house before your workers unionize.

    I have been working at TJX Companies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working Monday thru Friday 9- 5 was great. The discount was always a good thing!

    Cons

    Very hard to get to the corporate level from the stores. Not alot of promoting from within. Job openings in the office are not made available to the store associates. The training that is given is not the greatest. Kind of hung out to dry. Too many chiefs in the Corp. Office. Managers, Managers of, AVP's, SAVP's ....... Too much back stabbing in the offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    remove a few layers of management.... might help. Not much of a chance to grow

    I have been working at TJX Companies

    Pros

    With no true competition in the market, you really can't find better job security elsewhere. They remain true to their core values within every aspect of the corporation, making it easy to believe in and feel good about the work your doing/what you are selling.

    Cons

    True corporation, making it very difficult and time consuming for any changes to be fully implemented. Further, salaries reflect their off-price mentality...

    Former Employee - Merchandise Assistant in Framingham, MA (US)

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

    Pros

    Working close with the potential product. Seeing new product. Working in a fashion atmosphere.

    Cons

    Disorganized. First month of training my supervisor didn't know who would be training me, at what time, or on what. Bounced around with so many different people didn't even know what I was learning. My buyers as well as other buyers talk down to their assistants disrespectfully all the time. If there is a miscommunication (even in your first week while you're learning) your buyers will not talk to you about it to help you improve, they go straight to your supervisor. Your supervisors are not helpful unless you act at certain times of the day. If you ask too late in the day they say you should have asked earlier. You get in trouble for everything that you did and didn't do. I have several friends who work there that would say the same and all of them have gone home crying multiple times.
    Unreasonable deadlines. Receiving all your work at 4:30 on a Friday and expected to get it done.
    Fake. Most people who are merchandise assistants want to be buyers. Everyone is out to get each other and will tell on you for EVERYTHING. Do not make friends here and be careful what you say to anyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell your buyers to treat their assistants with respect. When everyone in the building has respect for each other then everything always runs a lot more smoothly.

    Former Employee - Warehouse Associate/Receiver in Evansville, IN (US)

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

    Pros

    The $300/week. And if you pick the receiving position, you are full time immediately but not in the union yet. Better than the other seasonal positions in my opinion.

    Cons

    You must be in shape and reach your quota for the week. Understanding SCAN software and basic warehouse areas is kind of stressfull. In a month you should be close to learning it all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it easier for receivers to understand where to send the inventory. Areas dont make alot of sense. I.E. LUDSR, LUDAR, etc.
