Frontline Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 3 September 2016
Working at Homesense gives you many opportunities, such as transferring to any Winners, Homesense or Marshalls if you need to move and you will not lose your current pay. The staff and management at my location was awesome!
Loss Prevention Investigator (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 22 August 2016
A typical day at TJX would be me getting signed in by the manager. then i would start reviewing footage of previous fraudulent returns or any theft activities from our external incident reports.i then would do a huddle with all associates and start using the cameras to search for any unprohibited activities. i would make lawful arrests with the 5 elements for either fraud or theft. i would report to police in any region that i am working.
Management taught me many other tricks to the trade in order to move up.
Everyone i worked with had a positive attitude and had a ver good knowledge of all policies and laws
the most enjoyable part of the job is that you feel like a part of a family where everyone looks out for you
Winners Store Associate (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 12 August 2016
Winners is a great place to work! Great for students that just need a part-time job and for people who love fashion and big brands. Working at Winners has it's benefits there's a lot of incentive programs for the associates to keep you motivated!
Working with TJX Canada has been an interesting experience.
During my time with TJX Canada, I have met the CEO of the company and he visited a bunch of stores nationwide seeing if the stores were doing well and if all of the employees were being treated well. Before the time for his visit, our store was made to look superb, top to bottom, by our store manager. Had everything been done properly from the get-go, we wouldn't have needed to change a bunch of things and a lot more associates' daily shifts would have been more efficient.
With that being said, managers at a Marshalls, Winners or Homesense expect a lot from their associates. They basically work you to the bone and if you're working on the floor and not in a designated spot. For example, the dressing room or working a cash register, you're expected to do way less than other people in the warehouse or on the sales floor. Managers have gotten mad at associates for not completing their designated jobs for the day which I found to be a little over the top.
There were a lot of fundraisers and lunchroom parties which was nice. Every summer there is a picnic with prizes to be won and same with the Christmas party, there were always great prizes to be won.
Dock Lay-up Associate (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 3 July 2016
Hardworking needs a lot of focusing, tiring long hours in standing position. Good work environment and most importantly helpful co-workers. Learnt about merchandising and sorting goods accordingly. Hate to make long queue for card scanning for the lunch break and on/off duty timings.
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 24 June 2016
Day started with a short meeting with day task. Well communicated to employees with some light talk. Hardest part was to close the order in the end of the shift. Which was centralized and achieve the daily task.
Allocation Analyst (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 31 May 2016
Not a good environment for people who are not comfortable with excessive gossip. Management was simply good at playing office politics, and keeping up with the gossip (I saw this in most Planning Managers, which led the example to Allocation Planners and team). Talent isn't a main driver in career advancement unfortunately. Female managers were easily threatened by new female talent. The strongest quality within TJXCanada is the president and his team of upper management, who are excellent industry leaders.
Salary and Benefits are equal to industry standard
General Laborer (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 26 May 2016
It was a great opportunity to work at TJX, as it helped me grow individually. It's a good place to work at to practice teamwork skills and individual skills. It changed my perception of work. I started to take it really seriously. It's a good place to work as a summer job as a student. Working here taught me to stay in school and to chase my dreams. The employees are really helpful. They really know how to make it a fun place to work for everyone.
Team Leader (Former Employee) – London – 24 May 2016
Maximum 20 hours contracts, if you refuse overtime they won't be asking anymore. If someone calls sick they don't remplace and it is the struggle on the shop floor. Overall good experience as they gave me the opportunity to become a team leader.
