Productive and fun work place
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Lynchburg, VAApril 2, 2014
Pros: weekly pay, flexible scheduling
Cons: short breaks, not enough hours, health care
Working at TJ Maxx consist of ringing on the registers, handling all the cash transactions such as returns and exchanges. Sales Associates also answer telephones, stock merchandise, run clothes ect. I am also a fitting room attendant. I meet and greet customers, count the merchandise that comes in and take out.I make sure that the clothes are hung correctly – more... on the hanging racks. My job consists on making sure all clothes are buttoned, zipped, tags and keyders are correctly in place. I also clean the fitting rooms from top to bottom, cleaning mirror, dusting, vacuuming, make sure all . I learned that customer service is very important when working in retail. If you have great customer service, that would help bring money to your company which will bring hours to the associate 's schedule..not only will the company make money, the employees as well. Our management consist of a store manager, assistant manager, C.E.C (Head Cashier), Sales associates, stockers, ect. My coworkers and I work as a team which makes the workplace enjoyable. The hardest part of my job would be unloading the truck. The most enjoyable part of the job is working on the registers and dealing with the public. – less

happy costumer
Customer Service (Former Employee), Purley, ENGApril 2, 2014
Pros: extra hours
Cons: it was a sunday
A typical day at work is starting with costumers wanting more items,different sizes, colours of products.
I had a lady she was looking for a dress from Dior and we had only one in the store but it looked like nobody purchased that dress so the dress was still in the store but nowhere to be found.The costumer she was a frequent shopaholic in our store. – more... Me and two other colleagues we were looking for the dress in the whole store which is on 2 levels.We where able to check with the management to find out if they have this special dress in other branches across London, and finally we have found the dress in the wrong department.
The costumer she was more than happy because now she can go to her sister wedding wearing the dress she loves.
The hardest part of the job was that we have to look for the dress for more than 4 hour but with a happy ending.
We definitely enjoyed ourselves wondering around the shop for a specific dress,we had fun. – less

Great starter job
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Torrington, CTApril 1, 2014
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: no health benefits for part timers
TJMaxx is a great place to get your feet wet in the work force while you work through college or towards advancing in retail. Coworkers are generally easy going and the hardest part of the job is repetitiveness of transactions and the most enjoyable part of the job is working with the public.

You dont want to work here
Cashier Sales Associate (Former Employee), Decatur, ALApril 1, 2014
The associates are mostly young. There is constant drama. If you are sick no one will take your shift most of the time resulting in you having to call out and it count against you. I learned alot, but there are VERY few chances for advancement. Making it a very dead end job.

Great Company, Badly managed store.
Home Goods Sales Associate/Cashier (Current Employee), Buford, GAMarch 31, 2014
Cons: a ton.
They rely on you to do so much, yet they never give you credit when you do a great job. Poorly managed store, fixtures are old and NEED to be replaced. Great co-workers, they are in the same boat as you so it's easy to talk to them. Hardest part of this job is to keep management happy, which is rare. Most enjoyable part of the job is when you actually – more... get recognized for something you did. Typical day includes unloading truck while putting new merchandise on the floor, while providing great customer service, while performing several other tasks. – less

Expect a Lot - Not appreciated
Store Manager (Former Employee), Pittsburgh , PAMarch 27, 2014
Pros: closed major holidays
Cons: no chance to advance
Dm comes in at end of shift and wants to walk the floor. No concern that you have been there since 7 am or that his or her day probably did not start until 8am. Meanwhile I have been up since 5am and have a family at home waiting for me. Very arrogant upper Management.

SALES ASSOCIATE (Current Employee), Anaheim Hills, CaMarch 27, 2014
My co-workers are amazing. We are just a big family! A typical day at work basically you clean a specific department and ring the customers that are waiting in line. The managers are the best. They are always there to listen if you have a question or a problem. The hardest part of the job is every now and then you get an upset customer, but the best – more... part are the customers that make the job more enjoyable. – less

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Beckton East LondonMarch 26, 2014
The day would start with meeting before opening the store. I would then check my work station and keep it tidy and re stock all carrier bags, sellotape, staples and pens were available at all other till points for when it gets busier, I would serve customers exchanging or refunding goods.I learned how to check all of the items coming back, from a security – more... point of you. My collegues where a great bunch of people and between us we worked well together to ensure smooth running of the store and great customer service. The hardest part of the job was never being able to leave at the time your shift ended for various reasons. The best part of the job was the customers and the diversity of people I had the pleasure of working with – less

cashier (Former Employee), Mobile, ALMarch 25, 2014
This particular job has a few cons. There are no benefits for the part-time workers. At times you will come in to work at different times everyday. Lastly, it lacks team work. However, the pros are excellent. The management is great when it comes to personal issues. The have work with me numerous times with my daughter and her health issues. The management – more... teams makes you feel like family and they care. I would work with them at any giving time. – less

LOVE WORKING WITH MAXXANISTAS
MERCHANDISE ASSOCIATE (Current Employee), GREENSBORO, NCMarch 25, 2014
Pros: 10% discounts, free layaways
Cons: short breaks
I love working at TJ MAXX...a typical day for me is working at the service desk assisting customers with purchases and returns. I have learned how to handle different areas of the store such as Jewelry, Layaway, as well as the Women's/Men's section of the store, They have taught me how to use Markdown equipment appropriately, and how to follow all loss – more... prevention and safety procedures. I have learned how to work as a team and how to rely on others for help if needed.

Management are really friendly and caring. They try to help the associates and work with them when presented with a problem.

My co-workers are definitely are different in every way, and we all help one another in order to make sure that everything runs smoothly.

The hardest part of my job is not being able to resist shopping, every time I come in I find something that I could wear or use.

The most enjoyable part of my job is shopping, I cannot resist it. There is a lot of things that I could use and would love to have, so I have no choice but to give in to the urge and buy it. – less
