    I worked at TJX Companies

    Pros

    I am a huge fan of the TJX Companies, so when I got the opportunity to work there, it was fun. Helping out the customers find clothes or accessories or even cleaning up at night was a cool experience. They do care about their employees but they do make it huge deal with inside thieves. I guess I can see why.

    Cons

    The cons were definitely my coworkers. They were rude, stuck up, and acted like high school kids. They had their clicks as well as the management having their favorites. I was only there for a short amount time due to the managers' issues and I would never recommend someone to work at that location. Other stores, I would be happy to try out.

    I have been working at TJX Companies part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I was recently promoted from a Sales Associate at the Pasadena Marshalls to the Glendale Marshalls as a Coordinator. I love having more responsibility and having a variety of duties.

    Cons

    The Pasadena Marshalls failed to process my transfer in a timely manner. For the last two months my paycheck does not reflect my promotion. They said I was still in the Pasadena Marshall's system. Pasadena Marshalls said they have processed they transfer. But now I am not showing up in the system anywhere. For the last two weeks I did not receive a paycheck at all. Please help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I need someone at Corporate office to help me. I have been a loyal employee of 3 years.

    I have been working at TJX Companies full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Having come from the retail background, I find the DC atmosphere refreshing. Work a 4 day week, and if overtime is necessary, you are compensated for your time. I have been working for about 7 months and love it so far. There's a lot to learn, but the on boarding experience was positive and comprehensive. Benefits are good, nothing to complain about!

    Cons

    The DC works as a union environment, so some of the situations with associates can be challenging. Keep in mind, there is stress at any job, but nothing that is unmanageable. Otherwise, I have no complaints and generally enjoy my job!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    So far, management has been very helpful and seem to function with an open door policy. I feel that I can voice any concerns, and they will listen. I feel that management really appreciates the effort of the associates and the supervisors, and reward them accordingly. I couldn't ask for a more welcoming environment.
