Pros

Best reasons to work at TJ's is flexible hours, and decent pay for what you do great Part time job for students and people who want to work with little responsibility-other than showing up, cashiering and stocking. Easy going place to work.

Cons

The full-timers are manager's who for the most part are uneducated and got promoted based on doing being friends with the Captain or first mate. No formal training program for them it's a sink or swim baptism by fire management program. They shoul be more elective recruiting college grads who have taken courses in leadership, management, and human resources. They fail epically in that area

Advice to Management

Formalize a management training program-

    Pros

    Decent pay. Health care, too. Hours are alright, they're at least willing to work around your school schedule... some times.

    Cons

    Didn't let me take time off to get surgery. Management doesn't communicate well, and favoritism is all you can rely on to be treated decently.

    Advice to Management

    Allow time off so that people can get the medical procedures they need. Don't let full-timers use abusive language towards part-timers.
