Community Relations Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Framingham, MAOctober 20, 2017
Growing company, business is doing great and store associates are committed and hard working. Home office has a tough culture, often stuck in the old way of doing things.

Fun job for students
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  El Cajon, CAOctober 17, 2017
A typical day at work is working 4 -7 hours a day for about 3-4 days a week. If you work at 6am, you stock the shelves of products. You learn basic cashiering skills. Good place to start for first job.
Pros
Discounts, Make friends
Cons
hours

Good place for a first job
Customer Service Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Rolling Hills Estates, CAOctober 17, 2017
A typical work day consisted of you coming in clocking in then heading to the cash registers. If it wasn't a busy day you would clean and restock shelves. The hardest part was having to deal with high stress customers, typically a return. The management there seems to actually care if you show you're putting in effort and the workplace culture is fairly light hearted as it was mostly college and high school students.
Pros
Discounts on clothes

One of the best companies to work for, hands down.
Operations Manager (Current Employee) –  Inglewood, CAOctober 15, 2017
TJX is a well-balanced organization. The management team and the organization itself adopts a family oriented style of management which only increases the cohesiveness, not only between management but with senior management as well. The company is the leader of effective team building and possesses the tools to execute. The only obstacle that you will face is deviating from policy and procedure, as long as you align your vision for your store along with TJX vision you will do extremely well. The culture is probably the thing I most enjoyed, the atmosphere, the feeling of being heard not only from your Store Manager but Senior Management, truly, the open door policy is in practice here.
Pros
Work-Life Balance - People!
Cons
None

Promising Career potential, but very competitive
Analyst (Current Employee) –  Framingham, MAOctober 10, 2017
The career potential is unlimited at TJX, but hard work and job performance are not the only things considered. You are judged constantly from how much time you spend having friendly conversations (a must) to if you leave the office once or twice a week for lunch (not acceptable). Job performance can be off the chart incredible, but if your relationships within the office are not within the company norm you will never succeed. It is not what you know, but who. One can have an amazing career at TJX as long as you can play the game first and focus on driving business second.
Pros
Salary and Healthcare
Cons
Culture, company enviroment, extremely competive

Focused on the Customer
Cash Office Associate (Former Employee) –  Marysville, WAOctober 9, 2017
Decent work place for a retail store. In general they maintain a high standard of job culture and give lots of opportunity for advancement and training. Downside is the amount of time needed to push for that advancement and the difficulty for less extroverted personalities to get recognized. Quite a bit of the hierarchy is based on customer reviews and your ability to push the company credit card at the register. So non cashier staff and 'quieter' persons are often out of the running for recognition. To succeed you have to make yourself known and often be required to relocate for manager positions.
Pros
Long lunches and decent health benenfits for full time
Cons
Very little paid vacation and low pay scale.

Okay place to work if your looking for a hold over job
Dishwasher/Kitchen Staff (Current Employee) –  Marlborough, MAOctober 8, 2017
Generally speaking, working in the kitchen isn't all that bad if your looking for work in a pinch, but the pay is poor and so are the benefits. That fact that this is a fortune 500 company and they pay such low wages is ridiculous and downright wrong. The kitchen staff are pretty easygoing for the most part, but the IT associates can be rude and condescending at times (comes with the territory).
Pros
Pleasant, easygoing coworkers, healthy lunch food options, easy access from the freeway
Cons
Poor pay and benefits

no room for growth
Accounts Payable Clerk (Current Employee) –  Marlborough, MAOctober 5, 2017
It's a good entry level job. The job itself is very repetitive and gets boring very quickly. However, there is no room for growth. Management promotes based on favoritism.
Pros
Paid Time Off, Medical, Dental, Vision
Cons

Great discounts and fun place to work
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) –  New Castle, DEOctober 3, 2017
I enjoyed working for this company it was a great place to work at the time. It’s been a few years since I e worked there, and at the time it was perfect I feel I would of enjoyed it more if I weren’t pregnant. So that kind of held me back from doing my job to the best of my ability but I stuck it out until the end.

Management was bad. Hours always varied. The workload was too much for the pay rate. Learn great interpersonal skills. The most enjoyable part was the employees.

General Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVSeptember 29, 2017
It was a competitive work place because associates fight for the merchandise to be able to do the production. It is very stressful but it has good benefits.

Good job, poor management
IT Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Evansville, INSeptember 28, 2017
This is a place that offers good pay but the work isn't for everyone. The benefits are typical for a corporation with insurance, vacation, 401k, etc. Biggest complaint is some management isn't always consistent. Some managers makes you wonder how they even hold that position, while others prove that they belong. It can sometimes be cutthroat due to focus on mistakes rather than accomplishments. Be prepared to get through under the bus.
Pros
Pay, job security
Cons
