cashier (Current Employee), San Jose, CAJuly 1, 2014
customer service, helping customers find what they are looking for, ringing up customers on the cash register, working the sales floor, and working in the fitting room. This was a very good experience for me, i have learned a lot like having a good fashion sense and paying more attention to the customers rather than my coworkers.Management didnt really – more... give completely direct orders, they basically just told us that they wanted us to get it cleaned and organized but they never said in a specific order. co-workers were very helpful when it came to needing help in a specific department. Hardest part of my job was trying to help an angry customer because its important that every customer leaves the store happy. The most enjoyable part of my job is getting compliments from the customers. – less

Working at TJ Maxx is like any other typical retail job, providing customer service to a wide variety of people, stocking the shelves with new merchandise and having a general clean and tidy up-keep of the store. I learned a lot about working in general from this job, it was my first real job and i developed a lot of patience. I generally love the people – more... i work with and going to work is fun, and it has been a great learning experience – less

Life at T.J. Maxx
Department Coordinator (Current Employee), Sherman Oaks, Ca.June 29, 2014
Pros: flexibility
Cons: pay
A typical day of work for me consist of excellent customer service, followed by quick and effective problem solving all while merchandising the department. Form there I'll have a few brakes and a lunch. After lunch the merchandising and customer service are the main focus. The conclusion of my day involves my daily clean up and turnover procedures and – more... then I'm done. The days here are externally fast and there are many highs and lows. I would have to say the best part of my day would be helping customers. I get a real satisfaction from helping others.The hardest part of my day would have to be not getting everything done at the end of my day. I pride myself on finishing what I start. And here there is so much work that I'm never truly done and that's gets under my skin a bit. But I've learned to get over it and myself. Management here is great and very understanding. Sometimes the can be on totally different pages but the always seem to come together when it matters. Management seems to have a real connection with the rest of the personal in the building. This makes for a friendly family like environment with all the pros and cons. We also have a very diverse work force from literally all walks of life. This benefits every employee in the building learn and understand different cultures, age groups, and just people in general. but this can lead to many misunderstandings and different perspectives. Overall I would have to say this a great place to work if you love people, hard work, and fast days. Avoid this job if your are easily stressed or overwhelmed, just okay customer service, and a poor communicator. There is a lot to learn in these type of jobs, I've learned a lot about myself and people in general. – less

Sales Associate (Current Employee), Tustin, CAJune 27, 2014
Pros: nice environment and incentives
Cons: difficult customers
I usually work at the front desk and i help to check out customers or help them with the questions that they may have. I learned how to multitask effectively and how to deal with different situations or circumstances. The management was great. They provided time for them to talk to me and guided me when i needed guidance. My co-workers were nice and – more... enjoyable. The hardest part of the job was to try and have customers sign up for the credit card and the pressure that was applied to me to get more credit cards. The most enjoyable part of this job was that i gained so much customer service experience. I think that this will definitely help me later in life concerning careers and day-to-day life. – less

Pros: management randomly would by food and dinners based on the progress of the store

A typical day at work consisted of cleaning and organizing the store according to the assigned department give to each individual.

I learned how to deal with chaotic situations and various groups of people

My co-workers were very outgoing and friendly for the most part

Hardest – more... part of the job was the technology in the store that sometimes didn't accommodate the most busiest days.

SALES ASSOCIATE (Current Employee), Memphis, TNJune 23, 2014
There is always something to do. I have learned that it is better to learn how to do everything and become cross trained, you have a better chance of getting more hours. My co-workers are the best. The hardest part of the job is managing long lines on your own. the most enjoyable part is the sweet customers.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), York, PAJune 23, 2014
I would always start out my day by finding any customers who needed help, help them, then go find the Manager on Duty to tell me what I was to do for that day. I learned to communicate with customers in an appropriate manner. My managers were extremely helpful and knew how to deal with each situation and would teach all of us how to deal with it as – more... well. My co-workers were also very helpful and knowledgeable of the merchandise and promotions. The hardest part of the job was dealing with certain customers. The most enjoyable part of the job was having people come back and request that I were to help them. – less
