Have been working with TJX Winners for 8months now and the management, department coordinators/managers, colleagues are super cool and fun. first retail experience of mine and I love working with them. Everyone from the manager to an associate is really kind and helpful.

Cliquey

Winners is a good place to start but not to stay. I worked there for nearly two years and the management was not fair at all. Days I was sick and had to go home I got in trouble for. They are very picky with who they give hours to. Hours are constantly limited as they are always hiring every new season. Good to work at if you are in school and need something small. Not great if you actually want a career.

Pros

Casual dress

Cons

No hours

Management caused a rift between employees and employers.

Working here is the same as any other minimum wage job, back-breaking labour for horrid pay, with managers who seem accepting but when needed for anything act as though you are the biggest inconvenience to them. We discussed our wages and found out that the older employees were making next to nothing and when confronted management got upset and grabbed screenshots claiming we broke the Code of Conduct, when in fact they had.

L’esclavage des temps modernes

Les employés à temps partiel sont très mal traités. La plupart des directeurs adjoints sont jeunes et stupides. Ils ne connaissent rien ils s’amusent à l’arrière du magasin et de temps ils sortent pour se pavaner dans le magasin. Les employés travaillent durement. Les coordonnateurs pensent qu’ils sont quelque chose et souvent c’est des anciens associés et ce sont de véritables micro manager. Je me demande où sont les contrôleurs de ces magasins ? Le turnover dans ces magasins est une preuve suffisante.

Pros

Temps temps des trucs à manger chocolat

Cons

Pas d’assurance pour les temps partiel

Friendly staff and nice management

It was nice place to work. Management was ok and coworkers mostly very nice to work with. Unfortunately, got an injury and had to quit. I hope I will get second chance.

Toxic environment and a horrible place to work.

If you like to work in a very toxic environment, then knock yourself out. If you enjoy having your career growth stifled by incompetent bosses with inflated egos, then it's the right place for you. Just remember to have an exit plan because you might need it immediately after you join them.

Another Awful Retail Job...

This company is awful. They lie to your face about career opportunities. If you want to be an invisible cog in the TJX machine then you should work here. TJX is filled with terrible managers who clearly hate their jobs and have no respect for employees. I am sick and tired of these typical retail corporations acting like their jobs are at the top of the barrel. If your are having mental health problems then I would not recommend working here.

Cons

Rude managers, rude customers, retail work

Stress free environment

It’s a very good place to work part time. Depending on the store, the other team members are very nice, collaborative and inclusive for all diverse individuals.

Overall a caring company , fast paced and but not much life work balance

Stressful high pressure work environment. Company talks about life/ work balance but in reality, that’s not true especially if you try to hit all the goals and meet all deadlines.Benefits are generous.

It was good

I would say it was a fair place to work. The management was good and enjoyable, and the work itself was very self-explanatory and what one could expect from a retail job.

Pros

Good managemant
Was this review helpful?

You're just a number to them.

Just like any big chain, you don't REALLY matter to them. It was fairly laidback, the best part was coworkers who (mostly) respected each other. Middle management can be abysmal, like most big corps, but I got lucky at the start with decent managers who have sadly moved on. I will be leaving the company soon as the shift in management has made our work environment more stressful by a ten-fold.

Unhealthy Management

Typical shallow management with no real insight on how to manage people effectively while also maintaining workplace morale. Managers are often shifted around store frequently and never get to know a team. Management is made up of very miserable individuals throughout their locations.

Pros

Easy to land a job here.

Cons

Toxic management makes experience unbearable.

Good luck getting a raise or a promotion.

Worked there for 3 years. Never saw anyone get promoted or a raise, myself included. Expectation to do a bit of every role, making it hard to specialize and do what you want to do.

Pros

Flexible hours, good student job

Cons

Little advancement and below-average pay even for retail. Work a grocery store instead.

Good Starter Job

• The job is fast-paced, which is great ( if you thrive in fast-paced settings ) • Coworkers are fantastic.• Pay is unliveable.• No benefits are given until you’ve worked a certain amount of hours - if you’re not a full-time associate, this is almost impossible. • Usually given one/two shifts a week that are no longer than four hours.• Unless you are management or a coordinator, there is no income stability. With no income stability and being paid close to minimum wage, you’re screwed for living expenses.• The turnover rate is quite high due to income instability, rate of pay, and lack of hours.The company shows no value or appreciation for their employees which is so, so unfortunate because it’s the little guys who make the company what it is; it’s just very disheartening. If you’re just stepping into the workforce, it’s a decent place to get some experience, but long term, it is not practical or realistic for anyone who wants consistency. An individual cannot financially support themselves and pay their responsibilities on a wage that sits at or a bit above poverty line. As a multi-billion dollar company, you should be providing your employees a liveable wage, along with essential medical benefits, and consistent scheduled hours. Oh, and the discount is 10% - doesn’t even cover the taxes.This is just ridiculous.

Pros

Coworkers / Fast Paced

Cons

Unliveable Wages / Lack of Hours / Overworked and Undervalued

Could improve

Too much work mobbing goes on. Management is decent but they don't see or hear how the mobbers influence the workers. Impossible to report it because targets get worse treatment if they say anything. Favoritism is obvious.

Pros

Discount Bonus

Cons

Random schedule Favored workers get away with almost anything

Fun workplace

Really good management. They want you to do good, help with your schedule. Environment is not toxic, everyone helps each other. Worst part is getting same time of shifts.

Pros

Free food, bonus

Cons

Same type of shufts

Great short-term job

It was fun at the beggining, but after a while it gets too repetitive since there is no place for evolution inside the company. The coworkers are amazing, it made work so much manageable.

Pros

Coworkers

Cons

pas d'avancement dans l'entreprise
