Top heavy company with odd practices, policies and procedures.
Associate (Former Employee) –  British Columbia4 November 2017
Off price retail definitely isn’t for everyone. Management switched every 3-6 months. They hire “part time” staff but are grossly understaffed so the “part time” staff ends up working 35+ hours a week without receiving benefits or perks of full time employment.

Low pay. Heavy workload. Company only cares about $$$$$
Merxhandise coordinator (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON30 October 2017
Managers don't care about the staff. Keeps pushing to get a lot done in a short time. One person does the job of 5 ppl. Doesn't matter how much you do it's never enough to please management. No thanks or appreciation.
Oh.. You get $1.00 increase for a coordinator position. Which is like a supervisor role.
Pros
Meeting new people
Cons
Thankless job

Save yourself the trouble
CASHIER & SALES REPRESENATIVE (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC30 October 2017
The management switches from time to time. The schedule is flexible but inconsistent. As a part-timer, you could be working 5x/week because they are understaffed. You will have to serve clients who treat you horribly. As for being sick, you are not compensated as much as you should and you gain zero benefits. I do not recommend this job to anyone. You will be doing 3 things at the same time and most of the tasks are meant to be done by a manager.

If you can't handle stress and horrible clients. Best you avoid this place!
Pros
great relationship with staff
Cons
understaff, management is bad, schedule is inconsistent, not part-timer friendly, not sick friendly

Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON20 September 2017
morning start up meetings with area processing manager then shift start up meeting with the associates. I have learned to adapt to constant change in product nothing is ever the same. TJX has a great emphasis on culture and making sure all of there associates feel comfortable and appreciated everyday.

A fraudulent place to work
Planning Manager (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON28 July 2017
Overall you must understand that everything is about managing perception rather than the actual business at TJX. They preach a lot about diversity, teamwork and culture but rarely actually live it themselves. Turnover in the company is about 50 percent. There is little or no advancement opportunity unless you make friends with merchants. Anything or relative interest is handled out of the Boston office or consultants . Stay away from this place and understand it's only a great place to work as voted by the many many 1-2 year associates.
Pros
10% discount
Cons
Nepotism, favouritism, cliques, forced team building exercises

Productive and fun place to work with a table tennis table and a cafeteria with a variety of options.
Accounts Payable Analyst (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON6 July 2017
I enjoyed the fact that a typical day at work was fairly demanding but employees were always encouraged to take breaks or a quick walk if you felt your assignments were overwhelming.

Great workplace with amazing benefits such as table tennis, pool, foosball, an onsite gym and cafeteria
Business Planning Analyst (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON17 June 2017
A great place to work with amazing culture. But rarely any opportunity for growth. Job titles do not reflect level of work performed. If there were more opportunities there would be even lower turnover.

Surprisingly good
Winners Merivale - Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON7 May 2017
It's retail at the end of the day. Customers can be rough, hours can suck, but for the most part the management team goes far out of their way to ensure the employees are happy. Excellent team, knowledgeable overhead crew, and at the end of the day it isn't the worst place to work. Pay could always be better and hours could certainly be less hectic, but either way - it's a retail job, and we all know what we sign up for there.
Typical day includes meeting to prep everyone with the latest ideas and tactics, pushing for improvement as usual, and then being torn between the berating of rude customers and the joy of the good ones. Hardest part is definitely the repetition - too many things to pitch and say when at the end of the day 90% customers don't care. Best part is easily the coworkers - most pleasant company I've ever seen.
Pros
Nice people, decent hours per week, management
Cons
Early/late hours more often than not, pay is minimum, customers can be problematic, lot of scripts to pitch at cash
