Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee), Hamilton, ON – October 8, 2014
Pros: friendly people
Cons: long hours
Working at Marshall's was my first job as a student, and it was an eye opener. My co workers were very friendly and so were the management staff. I've learned to be punctual and work in a busy environment. The hardest part of my job was learning the skills needed for each section in the store in a short notice, but it was also the most enjoyable part – more... due my excellent social skills and multitasking skils – less

I did enjoy this job for the time that I was employed there. It was decent with hours/pay while going to college as well. In the almost year that I was employed there, I had zero advancement in any of the areas and was typically placed in the same spot every time I had worked.
Merchandise Associate (Former Employee), Saginaw, MI – October 17, 2014
Pros: great co-workers, dress code
Cons: poor management, poor hours
It was hard to be an employee with a company that doesn't seem to care that you have a set availability. The typical day for me started early and was only a four hour shift. Being a single working mom on trying to provide for your child on a cruddy minimum wage job is hard enough, but when they only schedule you three days a week, four hours at a time, – more... it's not worth it. Management was okay most of the time. Out of the four managers, the head manager was the only one I ever felt was unapproachable. He looked down on all of the associates. The co-workers were the best (and only good) part of working at TJ Maxx. The hardest part of the job was getting enough hours for it to be worth going to. I quit because they were cutting hours again and I couldn't work any less. The most enjoyable part was getting to interact with the customers(most of the time). – less
Sale Associate/Cashier (Former Employee), Boston, MA – October 17, 2014
Cons: short breaks, no benefits
A typical day at work could have consisted of anything. No one really had just one specific task there, everyone did everything at one point or the other. For example if one had a shift from 7AM- 2PM, it could start out by restocking the front and fixing and damaged displays. By late morning such as around 10 am one could be working the Men's and kids' – more... section, and finish off the remainder of the day doing Women's or cashiering. Coworkers didn't interact unless told to do so due to a team effort on certain projects. Hardest part of the job was not having a stable schedule, and unfair treatment. Easiest part of the job was working in the fitting room. – less

I did everything there, from customer service , cashier, layaway cleaning, and restocking. It was a fun job, a lot of communication and team work. The hardest part of the job was having to deal with customers that are stubborn.
