Sales Associate/Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Stockyards – 9 December 2018
I work for just over a month in that time I has associates humiliate me in public, management not take it seriously. and then in the end lied to by management and told I will not be needed after one more week of work. to which I resigned before end of date. Everything I read about this company seemed amazing. I was very excited to start and be apart of a company that I thought held the same morals as I do. So when things started happening I was surprised and now extremely disappointed in how this company deals with conflict and how it treats its employees. If your a teenage with no understanding of your rights "to be treated with respect and dignity in the work place" then this is the job for you. Maybe that's why I don't see a lot of older people working at this company. If you stand up for yourself they will find a way to weed you out.
you get 4 hour shifts
a lot of the employees are rude and have no regard for basic treatment under the human rights code, Management is poor as they dont even care enough to ask employees if they're ok, Nor do they do necessary followup, And you get all this for minimum wage, and only 10% discount in store WOW not even the taxes.
Planning Manager (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 29 November 2018
Overall a terrible experience at TJX Canada. The company talks a real good game about being dynamic, exciting, progressive etc. In the interview process they hit all the marks.
In reality this company is full of it. The turnover is about 50% within the company as people eventually figure out how backward the company really is. You have systems dating back to the 80’s making work completely redundant and boring. Do you like trending ladder plans (Calculating performance with massive printed reports pencil, calculator and paper??? )
Most managers are unengaged and lack any experience. Very top down management mostly parachuted in from the US. Ever changing direction an fiddling with results. Nepotism, gossiping, favouritism are rampant. Zero bonus for non mgt employees
Stay the away from this place. You will regret spending any part of your careeer here
Associate (Former Employee) – Fort St. John, BC – 25 November 2018
they fired me over not being able to afford a doctors note for having a knee injury. they don't care about their staff and would rather have a person who doesn't do anything then one that does. head office doesn't do anything and unless you are full time staff you don't get more then four hours a day. store managers yelled at me in front of customers because i couldn't afford a 80 dollar doctors note.
some nice co-workers, customer interactions
management wont stand beside you and will fire you for little things.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 25 November 2018
Working at Winners in the Avalon Mall was truly the worst experience of my life!!! I am still in disbelief of the way things are run at that location! If you are not a suck up don't bother to apply! If you get sick and have to go off work for any amount of time they don't even call to see how you are doing! If you can't do anything for them they don't care about you anymore. So much for their core values which by the way are only on paper...they do not live by those values!!! The Joy Project is a joke ...the only ones to get their name put on that list is someone who puts water in the fridge for the staff. Thats the only "Joy" they experience!!! Most management and coordinators have very little respect for part time workers which is why the turn over is so high. The majority of staff leave shortly after orientation if they last that long all! My advise is to stay away! McDonalds is a better option!!!
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Moncton Area, NB – 20 November 2018
I got this job while I was in school and it was great because of the flexible hours. You get 45 min breaks which is also great. Most of the staff are very nice and hard workers.
On the other hand I worked there for a good while and I wasn't trained in anything but dressing rooms and cash. The pay is unliveable. They do not value seniority or hard work. One can fully expect that other newer associates will be trained in higher positions with higher pay.
If you get injured most likely you will lose your job or your job will be in question.
The management is questionable. Two of the managers are great. They are loving and actually care about you, but there is one manager that will yell at you for just doing your job depending on her mood.
Its a very stressful environment with no real chance in moving forward in anything.
Overall it wouldn't be a bad place to work if they fixed these things.
Executive Assistant, SVP GMM - Merchandising (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 14 November 2018
After 10 years with this company, it was a great experience. Lots of advancement opportunity. Culture can't be beaten! The home office facilities are amazing! They really do invest in their associates.
General Labourer (Former Employee) – 55 west drive. – 30 October 2018
Always arrive the warehouse 15 minutes early. Department meeting. Stretch. Get our papers and wait at our door or start working. I worked in receiving department so I would be pulling skids out of trucks. Organising boxes by P.O and styles. Sending them to the right departments. Required to do 3000 boxes a day. Learned how to use their system. Operated a pump truck everyday. Learned tips and tricks with moving/holding boxes.
Management was great. Seemed very organised with many department heads and supervisors. It was very easy to call in sick and not have to worry. There were rules and policies. A proper orientation and training.
I hated this places workplace culture. It felt like I was a farm animal in a barn moving from one place to the next. Especially during the time shifts change. Work ethic was terrible. All the senior employees would just do the bare minimum. Setting very bad examples for new employees to do things right. Especially when you're getting bad mouthed by a senior employee for "working too hard"
The hardest part of the job was turning my brain off just to mentally get through the day. Working with people that hated their job eventually made me hate it too. Also, if you enjoy working in a non-conditioned environment were you sweat, dry off, sweat again. Coming home a sticky smelly mess then this is the job for you.
The most enjoyable part of the job was getting paid and going home.
Good management. Opportunities for growth and transfer.
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 28 October 2018
Skids would be lined up for my line, with more than 1 order on them. Price tags would be put on every item, and attached to the order is what box number the item and quantity would have to be placed inside. All boxes were on a rotating carousel for each store. There was a separate part on the carousel for stores that required non-freezables (shampoos, hand creams, etc)
associate (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 21 October 2018
Just my opinion based on my experience from one store. If I knew what I know now, I would work someplace else.
* A typical day usually means the store is under staffed. And, don't be surprised if your shifts are cut short. Or, send home when you show up for your shift.
* I leant worksmart. The company has excellent training videos,work guidelines, and best practices for employees. Unfortunately, management at store level doesn't seem to believe in it.
* Management "?" Purposely alter policies to fit personal agendas. Favoritism, or worst, tribalism and alternative truth.
* Workplace culture "?" A place encourages you to report on your co-workers, friends and supervisors. I guess it could be an effective tool against internal thieves. Unfortunately, some people take it too far.
* The hardest part of the job is that you are NOT evaluated and compensated based on your job performance or demonstrated abilities.
* The most enjoyable part of the job is the moment you get to clock out.
Frankly speaking, stay away. That's probably the best decision you have made for your career.

Floor Associate (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 26 September 2018
Managers were kind so were mist coworkers as a girl I definitely felt isolated by the other girls seeing as jealousy over took them and made them angry with me out of jealousy. Flexible hours and schedule managers really care about you,
