Senior Allocation Specialist (Current Employee), Framingham, MA – August 3, 2014
Pros: never the same day
Cons: constantly changing teams
What I love most about my job as a Senior Allocation Specialist at TJX is that there is no "typical day at work." Each day brings new opportunities and challenges. One day I might be planning the opening mix for the Christmas assortments and the next day I could be comp shopping candles. I have learned to work "in the gray" and to be flexible and to – more... adapt to different personalities, different work styles and how those differences can make a strong team. The hardest part of the job is sometimes not knowing what is coming next. It may seem like a perfectly quiet day and the to-do list is very short and then all of a sudden, there are 10 projects that need immediate attention. In the 7 1/2 years at TJX, I have learned to expect the unexpected and to be able to prioritize and work quickly. The most enjoyable part of the job is any time I can spend researching new products. I love to comp shop in the market, get new ideas and bring them back to the buying teams. I especially love when the buyers react positively to the samples and I can work with them to try and source those products for future seasons. – less

Sales Associate (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZ – July 31, 2014
Cons: short breaks and short hours.
I process a cart of show boxes and a cart full of luggage. I have not learned anything special other than the basic functions of my daily routines. The managers are really friendly, however it may seem like the managers do not care about what you need since I came to them with concerns of mine and nothing has improved. The co-workers are really friendly – more... and helpful. The most enjoyable part of the job is the interaction with the co-workers and customers. – less

I love working at the Maxx the first few months I was there. the people are great to work with and the managers are okay if they like you. they however are not big on training, if they like you in one spot you will be stuck there. And they dont really promote because they are only allowed so many people to be full time positions.
However i really do – more... enjoy working with the customers and my coworkers are great! I made friends pretty fast because everyone is pretty easy to get along with. – less
