It Was Great When It All Began
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Hadley, MA – February 16, 2019
When I started working for TJ Maxx in 2008, it was a chance to get my foot in the door. I was ready to work any hours needed.
I started out in the dressing room, then advanced to markdowns & processing in the backroom.
Sometimes management would forget that I requested time off and call me into work. This upset me, as I felt I was being taken advantage of as a "go-to girl" when other associates call out.
My job commute was at least 30 minutes, so last March, I was a bit caught off guard when asked to report to work on very short notice. The manager who called me wouldn't take no for an answer, and refused to let me explain that I didn't want to rush. I almost got into an accident rushing out and punched in late.
commute, not enough hours
