Fine at time to work at, wage an hour went up a bit while working there
Cashier/Fitting Room (Former Employee), Egg Harbor Township, NJ – May 18, 2013
Doing cashier was OK but some days I would have liked to get more help back in the fitting room when it was very busy. Either low on employee could have played part, not sure. Store would get messy right after straightening up esp. in the clothes and underwear sections.
Cashier (Former Employee), Bronx, NY – May 17, 2013
Pros: wonderful work environment
Cons: constant short-staffed work days
Go to work with prepared for a fast paced day in sales. They taught me to work the cash register, pick up clothes and other things in the designated areas. Management was some of the finest I've seen. Friendly, but constructive in criticism. A perfect meld of what a manager should be. The hardest part of the job was the short-staffed days that happened – more... a plethora of days. For the fast pace in the store, a larger number of employees should definitely have been compromised. I loved the people though, A wonderful work experience. – less
Pros: having a good lunch is healthy when it's free or just find a queit place to relax your mind.

Greeting people is an experince each day.It has it's ups and downs but I made the best of whatever situation occurred. Iam a outgoing,problem solver, easy going person but I take my job seriously and speak my mind when necessary. Overall I enjoy what I do.
Hard working , dependable, friendly, customers are your business out look

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Exton, PA – May 15, 2013
The management was one of the best parts of the job. They were always willing to take time out of their day to help with something you didn't understand. They kept an open door policy so if we ever needed to talk they were more than willing to listen.
sales associate (Former Employee), staten island, ny – May 14, 2013
Pros: free lunches
Cons: pay wasn't so good
The hardest part about working in tj maxx was closing at night and the fact that you are not allowed to leave the store if the whole sales floor is not clean regardless of what time your schedule states. sometimes you wouldnt get to go home till an hour and a half past your scheduled time.
great place to work, fun working with other detectives.
Loss Prevention Manager (Former Employee), Tallahassee, FL – May 14, 2013
Cons: meeting new people
My day would consist of being productive and better today than I was yesterday. I have learned a great deal of experience when dealing with loss-prevention in how to develope a team of detectives and to develope each individual into a productive source for my company, being in management allowed me to better understand what it takes to get the job done – more... in a productive manner without many errors in the developement of my empployee's. The most challenging with developing a productive source would be the individual not performing his or her job and I train each individula with the highest level of servive and they don't pay attention to detail it's hard for me as a manager to except just average when I am providing the individual with the best training possible. – less
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Orlando, FL – May 13, 2013
Pros: holiday lunches, free meals depending on how many credits sold
Cons: youre broke
Minimum wage with about 25 cent raises once a year. People I work with have been with the company for 4 years and over and dont even make $9. If youre front end expect to be drilled to open TJX credit cards so the company meets their goal for the week. Our LP in Orlando is horrific and I cant count how many times we've been hit with women running out – more... the store with 7 Michael Kors purses which will come out of your hours. They need to keep a certain amount of people staffed REGARDLESS meaning while half the employees are getting about 10-14 hours maximum a week they will still hire five new people. My coworkers are the only ones that put a smile on my face because we all get along well as a family unit. However expect messy retail at its BESSSST for chump change that will remain such until you leave. High turnover rate. – less
Floor Associate (Former Employee), Saint Petersburg, FL – May 9, 2013
there was never a typical day at work, because every day was different. people coming in with problems about clothing and returns, to helping people find an outfit for a high school reunion. i learned how to interact with the customers on a more personal level, and how to help them the quickest but most efficient way possible while handling everyday – more... duties (keeping floor and racks clean, running go back racks from dressing room, etc.). – less
