    I worked at TJX Companies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great team! I loved the employees. Growth is possible to any extent, but as for most places its all in who you know.

    Cons

    Upper management was the problem. Needs better cross-training process and spend more time with new employees rather than throw them out there with the wolves. They didn't show true compassion for there employees, they wanted hard work with little reward. I worked there for quite sometime, at first it was great I was promoted twice in one year, and then once I was transferred to a new store I was stuck in the same position for two years. I didn't ever get much of a raise either, more work for a very small increase.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show your employees you really care. Do not talk about your team behind their back set an example you are management. Ensure your employees like to come to work and are comfortable because in the end that can and will affect customer service.

    Pros

    Co-workers are great, and the schedules are very flexible! Easy job

    Cons

    Management is terrible. They are rude and think they rule everything! Managers here tend to be very bossy, but they never seem to do anything themselves

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about your employees, and don't be so overbearing!! It gets way out of hand

    My Merchandising Internship experience wasn't too great.

    Former Employee - Merchandising Intern in Framingham, MA (US)

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

    Pros

    The company overall sustains a really great working environment. People are friendly, work-life balance is great, cafeteria food is amazing. I was happy with the people and other interns I met at work.

    Cons

    Personally, I did not have a great experience with my manager. I struggled with learning my tasks in the beginning and was criticized much too often. I felt that I wasn't respected as an intern and often times felt very intimidated and discouraged before coming into work. But that's just my personal experience.
    I also felt that the internship program didn't do a great job ensuring that interns had everything they needed to succeed in the program. That being said, I wasn't given a proper working space or a personal computer. It made it difficult for me to adapt to my job as quickly as other interns because I didn't feel like a legitimate part of the team.

    Another downside was that the company seemed very homogeneous. I did not see a lot of diversity.

    The internship is largely an introductory program to the entry-level allocation analyst position at the company. I don't think it was fit for me but I would recommend it to people who enjoy working with numbers and sitting in front of a computer from 9-5.

    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.
