Cashier/Sales Associate/Floor/Stock/Fitting Room (Former Employee), Hoffman Estates, IL – October 19, 2014
I did enjoy this job for the time that I was employed there. It was decent with hours/pay while going to college as well. In the almost year that I was employed there, I had zero advancement in any of the areas and was typically placed in the same spot every time I had worked.
Merchandise Associate (Former Employee), Saginaw, MI – October 17, 2014
Pros: great co-workers, dress code
Cons: poor management, poor hours
It was hard to be an employee with a company that doesn't seem to care that you have a set availability. The typical day for me started early and was only a four hour shift. Being a single working mom on trying to provide for your child on a cruddy minimum wage job is hard enough, but when they only schedule you three days a week, four hours at a time, – more... it's not worth it. Management was okay most of the time. Out of the four managers, the head manager was the only one I ever felt was unapproachable. He looked down on all of the associates. The co-workers were the best (and only good) part of working at TJ Maxx. The hardest part of the job was getting enough hours for it to be worth going to. I quit because they were cutting hours again and I couldn't work any less. The most enjoyable part was getting to interact with the customers(most of the time). – less
Sale Associate/Cashier (Former Employee), Boston, MA – October 17, 2014
Cons: short breaks, no benefits
A typical day at work could have consisted of anything. No one really had just one specific task there, everyone did everything at one point or the other. For example if one had a shift from 7AM- 2PM, it could start out by restocking the front and fixing and damaged displays. By late morning such as around 10 am one could be working the Men's and kids' – more... section, and finish off the remainder of the day doing Women's or cashiering. Coworkers didn't interact unless told to do so due to a team effort on certain projects. Hardest part of the job was not having a stable schedule, and unfair treatment. Easiest part of the job was working in the fitting room. – less

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Chelmsford, MA – October 15, 2014
I did everything there, from customer service , cashier, layaway cleaning, and restocking. It was a fun job, a lot of communication and team work. The hardest part of the job was having to deal with customers that are stubborn.
Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee), Tuscaloosa, AL – October 14, 2014
Pros: flexible work schedule, flexible work attire
Cons: no/little benefits
As a customer service representative, I learned many useful skills, such as cash accountability and good customer service skills as well as performing merchandise exchange and refunds. My coworkers were helpful and the management pushed me to succeed at my job. The hardest part of the job was calming down irate customers. The most enjoyable part of – more... the job was learning all the new skills of being a customer service representative. – less

Pros: managment is great!
Cons: have to work a lot of nights and weekends
T.J. Maxx is a good place to work for a part time job. They work well working around your schedule. I worked the cash register. I also inventoried and stocked the racks with new merchandise This job got a me more familiar with customer service because I was always helping customers with their purchases along with helping them find items.
Sales Associate/Customer Service (Former Employee), Rockwall, TX – October 7, 2014
I liked the job at TJ Maxx. All I would do was stay in the fittingroom and the people were really nice and they would help out a lot and I would help others as well. I learned a lot by helping customers.
