Pros: Timely breaks, time goes by quick, you can shop while you work.
Cons: No health benefits for part time workers.
T.J. Maxx was a fun place to work at for my first job. It is a lot of walking, bending over, squatting and some lifting is required. Unless you are a manager, you are doing different things all the time.
One day you'll be on the floor fixing displays and picking up clothes, the next you'll be on the fitting room duty or at the jewelry section. Being at the register is an everyday thing, they will call you to the register when the line gets long and they need help bringing it down.
The managers I worked with were very nice and understanding, they were not intimidating and they made sure you got your break in a timely manner. It is fast paced so time goes by quick. You won't even feel a 4-hour shift pass you by.
