Front End Coordinator (Current Employee), Mount Vernon, NY – August 21, 2014
Pros: working with some good people
Cons: no team workers
A typical day at TJ Maxx is very different some days it could be very busy other days its very hectic. I learned that you have to hold your mouth when it comes to some customers. My coworkers and I have become really close. The hardest part of the job is dealing with immature employees and dealing with issues with management. The most enjoyable moments – more... would be the laughs with my co-workers. – less
Coordinator/Supervisor (Current Employee), Bastrop, TX – August 19, 2014
A typical day at work is making sure customers are taken care of and associate concerns are met. I learned that some associates are hands on learners. By coaching them hands on it will help them learn the process faster and make sure procedures are done accurately. Management is great. If anyone has a concern or complaint management takes care of it – more... in a professional manner. My co-workers are a breath of fresh air. We are able to come into work and talk about our concerns and communicate with respect. The hardest part of the job is making sure associates are on the same page and aware of what is going on in the store. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing I can come into work and have the best team of workers I can depend on. – less
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Columbus, MS – August 19, 2014
I loved working at TJ Maxx, nothing negative to say about the people I worked with or the company, it was my first job and they gave me an oppurtunity to learn what I needed to know dealing with retail, they treated me equal and worked with my school hours.
Loss Prevention Supervisor (Former Employee), Norwell, MA – August 19, 2014
I loved working for the TJX Companies, INC. I learned so much from this job. This was my first supervisor position for Loss Prevention and I was responsible for my own store. Management was great and there was always a steady flow of communication.
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Farmington Hills, MI – August 14, 2014
Once I would punch in I would go straight to the register and start ringing up customers. It's nice to greet customers and them smile at you back. I got along great with my co-workers and never had any issues with the job.
Associate (Former Employee), Missoula, MT – August 13, 2014
Pros: small food items supplied in break room
I, and other associates, were treated with some disrespect from management and other employees. During the last few months of working there, I was scheduled to the fitting room, where I would count clothing items brought to me by a customer, and give them a ticket to go try their items on. When first starting this job, I was mainly a cashier and dealt – more... with many customers, achieving their satisfaction and loyalty to the company. The hardest part was my schedule; I was not given very many hours, and my schedule was erratic. The most enjoyable part was gaining friends and learning retail-related things. – less
A busy place to work where you can meet new people.
front-end associate (Current Employee), Vernon, CT – August 12, 2014
Pros: little physical labor
Cons: little appreciation
As a front-end employee you are the face of the company. In an increasingly competitive retail market your actions will decide whether a customer will become/remain a regular or choose from among countless competitors. Customer service is a constant factor; in the front of the store your behavior is being judged not only by your current customer but – more... also by those still waiting in line. Management tends to pick favorites, Although what their criteria is for choosing those favorites isn't solely based on work ethic. Even the hardest workers have difficulty striving for attention. Your co-workers are good hard working people who are also trying to make waves and stand out. The hardest part of the job is the lack of compensation and appreciation for a hard days work. Even those employees who are clearly giving an extra effort have a tendency to fall through the cracks during the review process; every achievement is down played and and every fault exaggerated. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with a wide variety of people. The customer base is so varied you never know how your next transaction may differ from the last. – less
