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

Very fast pace job
Coordinator (Former Employee) –  MontrĂ©al, QC1 May 2017
The company is doing well which brings a form of job security. The store environment is also fun as they always have new products. The company however expects a lot and is not forgiving.

The company is quick to manage people out. Mangers have a high turnover and this culture permeates at different levels.
Pros
Seeing the new product
Cons
Very fast pace. Nothing is ever good enough.

What I've Learned
Customer Service - Ticketing Agent (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON26 April 2017
Not everyone likes new people coming into a job. Favourites have already been established, your fellow employees expect you do as they say even if the Supervisor/Manager told you otherwise.

Factory job
Stock Clerk (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON27 March 2017
Did not enjoy this at. Horrible working conditions, as there was no A/C in a metal factory full of thousands of people causing it to be incredibly hot during the summer. Overall it was a learning experience that detoured me from ever pursuing a factory job.
