ASM, Operations (Former Employee) – Undisclosed – August 17, 2016
Leadership says one thing and does another. Values associates opinions over facts. Demands excellence. Complete hypocrites. Do not work for this company if you value yourself and your abilities as they will only put you down while "trying to develop you." they are afraid of lawsuits and allow those of ethnicities and religious beliefs 'outside the white, Christian person, to run everything.'
watch your back...no one is your friend and no one can be trusted, no one.
Sales Associate helps strengthen good communication skills
Sales associate (Former Employee) – Quincy, MA – August 13, 2016
I have been a sales associate at Tjmaxx for about 3-4 years, and It was a great decision to make for my first job. It was very straight forward, my managers were very kind to me, and I made friends with my co workers very quickly. It allowed me to dress with my own personal style while still conforming to dress codes, and allowed me to use strengthen my communication skills with several people throughout the years. It's always rewarding when you're not only representing well for your company, but leaving a good name for yourself when you leave - in which I did. I had customers compliment me numerous times, and that's what kept me going.
Great managers, lots of interaction with customers, can make new friends easily, surrounded by new merchandise, will always learn something new the longer you work there, can be the easiest job the longer you stay
busy work days can be stressful, lots of walking, pay is mediocre
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Midlothian, VA – July 30, 2016
I usually check out customers, put back items and assist in the dressing room. I learned how to deal with people of all nationalities and temperaments. Management can be demanding and strict, but my bosses were rewarding of my efforts. My co-workers are amicable and mostly easy to work with. The hardest part of the job was meeting the quota for credit apps for the day, but the most enjoyable part was when I manage to help customers when they have an issue with something. Sometimes that involves helping customers who don't speak English.

Sales associate, Cashier, Coordinator (Current Employee) – Cambridge, MA – July 19, 2016
A day at work is pretty basic not much excitement to it, but on the positive side it keeps you busy as well as it keeps you motivated to challenge yourself. You learn a little more about customer service each and every day as well as learning a little more about how you as a sales associate can benefit from working at this company and how you can use the things you have learned to better the company. Management is full of great, hardworking people it's just sometimes in the mix of doing their job as a manager they forget to better communicate with the employees, that ties in to the hardest part of the job when there isn't a good source of communication the job can't be done correctly but then there is also dealing with challenges with customers and the things that they need. Overall, the most enjoyable part of the job is helping customers, giving them a positive lasting impression, learning and acquiring some key values through the company by expanding your interest in different departments and becoming flexible and useful in more than just one aspect of the store.
Discount, sometimes we are given better snacks outside of the mall
Energy Management Admin (Current Employee) – Marlborough, MA – July 18, 2016
No incentive to stay due to lack of growth within the department. High volume call center with a very old way of dealing with issues. So far behind a sustainable competitive advantage dealing with HVAC issues was unproductive in many cases. Management picked favorites and unfortunately left me with an unpleasant experience from such a successful company.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Rockaway turnpike ny – July 16, 2016
Cons. Break time, hours, favoritism, working closing time, low pay, overworked, micromanaging coordinators, bad work schedule, crafty managers, few co workers who try to act like managers by been bossy. The only reason to work in this company is paycheck every week but at one point you have to wonder if the little pay is worth it.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Michigan – July 8, 2016
If you're looking for a work/life balance, well, you'll get it, because they offer you maybe 10-20 hours of work per week. Minimum wage. They never had enough people working, so you're running around like a chicken with it's head cut off trying to do everything. The people they do hire are mostly high schoolers or those in their early twenties who generally don't have much work ethic and don't bother showing up to work. The #1 goal is to sell the credit cards, and if you do, you get rewarded generously. No, not really, that was sarcasm. You get a JEAN DAY! or maybe a WATER BOTTLE! or a CANDY BAR! This really motivates the workers. The credit card is a joke, with something close to 30% APR interest per year. Shameful. Now on to the management. One of the managers was probably quite literally one of the worst people I've ever met in my life. She was UNBELIEVABLY rude to workers and, at times, customers. Funnily enough, during meetings she would lecture us about respect, kindness, etc, yet somehow, it flew over her head that she lacked all of these traits herself. I only worked here two summers between college, and boy, oh boy, was I happy that that would be it. This is not a professional career, and you will never get anywhere in this company that's actually worthwhile. Best of luck to you all.
