Exceptional Workplace in MN...not so much in Indiana and Illinois
Cashier/Women's Associate (Former Employee), Calumet City, IL – April 14, 2014
Pros: great management in minnesota, advancement opportunities, learn new skills
Cons: minimal hours
I loved working for TJMaxx in St. Paul, MN. I actually looked forward to going to work. My managers kept me busy(which I love) and always gave me an opportunity to learn new things. I definitely recommend working or shopping at TJMaxx in St. Paul, Midway shopping center. However, I came across an unfortunate situation and had to relocate to Indiana. – more... I did not like working for Marshall's in Illinois. Everything was so unorganized, management and supervisors weren't any help. I found myself out of place and was receiving minimal hours. All around TJX is still a great company. We can't let one bad apple spoil anything. I love TJX still and would go back, given the opportunity. – less

Then promoted again to head cashier (Former Employee), Wilton, N.Y – April 14, 2014
Pros: friendly envirornment, stay busy. a lot of responsibility.
Cons: short breaks, long hours, minimum wage.
A typical work day- arrive early, punch in on time, my area was the front of the store meaning in charge of opening registers scheduled other employees breaks kept the change count took all in coming and out going calls head cashier. sometimes I was always on register or I wasn't on the register at all because I had to greet customer. what I learned – more... while working at Tj Maxx was much better people skills, dealing with different situations in better ways, when getting promoted to head cashier I had a lot of responsibilities that I had to learn them so I was able to do the job. my co workers were easy to work with. Hardest part of the job would of been the fact that I learned just about every job that is provided at Tj Maxx, for example I began in the shoe department, then was moved around to the different areas of the store like mens, kids, and toys, to juniors/ womens then promoted to the jewelry counter/ all accessories section, then promoted again to head cashier. The most enjoyable part about my job was that I was able to do any job because I had experience and learned the responsibilities that come with the other areas in the store. – less
Worked throughout high school and transferred with company to Florida.
Sales Person (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PA – April 13, 2014
Working at TJMaxx was great as a teenager because you could get discounts on clothes. I learned about business, accounting, and sales. Management and co-workers were great. Hardest part of job was dealing with certain customers. Most enjoyable part was working in the cash office and balancing the drawers for the day.
Give assistant help to customers (Former Employee), Tifton, GA – April 12, 2014
Pros: 10 to 20 % discount
Cons: not enough hours
Too many people hired and not enough hours to work. Other then that I enjoyed working for TJX. A typical four hours would consist of either making sure that all the clothes were in their correct area to keeping the dressing room clean and secured. Co-workers were fun to work with. Management some were ok some were not. Nothing was hard about the job. – more... I enjoyed helping people but together an outfit. – less
a easy job to hold you over until you find a better job
Men's clothing coordinator (Current Employee), New York, NY – April 10, 2014
Pros: cool management
Cons: low pay, not enuff hrs
I can honestly say I learned a lot while working at tjmaxx. Most definintly a good retail job start. other than that the pay is low. if you prove better than average than they work you like a slave while only rewarding with a green piece of paper that is thrown in a envelope with 100 other people to hopefully win a towel with tjmaxx embroided on it.
Front End Coordinator At TJX Companies (Former Employee), Moorestown NJ – April 8, 2014
great for someone starting out work for the first time. A typical day would be constantly being on your feet. You learn how to provide customer service as their is a large flow of customers. You deal a lot with customers one on one. Compensation is not the best.
Very fast pace and enjoyable work place. i love being in retail
Sales Associate/Customer Service (Current Employee), Forked River, NJ – April 8, 2014
A typical day at work is usually a busy day at work. I am most of the time running around trying to get a lot of things done and picked up on why whole shift. I learned how to deal with customers problems in a professional manner. My co-workers are nice to work with, there are different personality's which keeps it fresh every time I go into a shift – more... because I see different and new faces. There isn't really a hard part of this job. I just go in and do what I have to do, I don't find retail too hard. The most enjoyable part about this job is being able to work with other people and interact with customers. – less
