Extremely competitive internally
Allocation Analyst (Current Employee) – Framingham, MA – May 3, 2018
Very competitive between employees within the company. Management sees "leadership" as the loudest voice in the room. Very fast paced, sink or swim mentality. If you're not an extremely outgoing person, it will be a very hard place to be successful. Even if your responsibilities are being met, if you are not constantly building relationships and "partnering" with management, you will be passed over for promotions. The Planning and Allocation department mostly hires directly out of college and promotes employees to manager long before they are ready to manage a team of people. If you're joining TJX with prior work experience, the "culture," which they are so proud of, is extremely difficult to acclimate to. Be ready for a lot of whispering and talking behind people's backs. You will also be transferred to other departments without any say or any warning and the only explanation will be "company needs." You could easily go from a good situation to a bad one without being able to prevent it.
