Pros: easy work, prizes for working hard, balanced environment
Cons: pay is minimum wage, hours fluctuate
Marshalls was a nice place to work at. The most enjoyable experience was connecting with the people. Also, at the location where I worked the management team was phenomenal! From the Store Manager to the Assistant Managers, they all worked well in developing their team. They made you feel like they cared about you beyond just showing up to work and – more... doing your job duties. That made the experience memorable.
Depending if you are on the floor or behind the cash wrap, your duties vary. It is customer service driven, but you won't feel the pressure to upsell and hound people to make purchases. This is where one can relax, but pushing customers to sign up for the TJX rewards card is a top priority. But even in that, there are so many benefits as your store increases its conversion and does well, they send prizes for the employees. I used to win stuff all of the time. From movie tickets, to mugs, t-shirts, etc..
I would recommend working here if you've never had a job before. It's very simple and they are very flexible with your schedule. For school, church, etc... just letting them know in advance they work around your schedule well. Also, if you are a hard worker you will get more hours. – less
