Company Culture

Company is not management friendly

Challenging Work

High pace work environment with a low home to work balance

Suggestions for improvement

  • Stop cutting costs on training programs for hourly associates and management. Outside training allows associates to meet up with others and share ideas.

What I like about the company

They offer great things for hourly associates such as a food pantry to help those in need of a meal or snack.

What I dislike about the company

Take care of all employees weither they are hourly associates or management. Treat everyone with same respect.

The following perks were offered to me

Employee discounts is offered

Company Culture

A lot of people who spoke & understood little english.

Support from management

No one ever shows you how to complete projects.

Teamwork

Ha ha.

Internal Communication

90% negative communication

Attitude towards older colleagues

Saw them try to force a 60 year old to quit. After 13 years with the company.

Career Development

Very little in store promotions. Was told nobody ever got a. 50 cent raise.

Overall compensation for your work

They couldn't pay me enough to work there again.

Environmental Friendliness

Never saw or heard anything to do with the environment.

Work-Life Balance

Seemed not to care about life outside of work.

Company Image

I was very unhappy here.

Job Security

If you don't finish a project in the unreasonable time they set, you are threatened with demotion.

Challenging Work

Huge workload. Unrealistic time constraints. Little encouragement.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would hire people who care about more than their bonuses.

What I like about the company

Co workers were the best. Great people who were all struggling to do the job of 5 people. That is the only thing I loved. The people I worked with.

What I dislike about the company

The unrealistic mandatory goals. The lack of good team managers. The managers were rarely seen lending a hand with their team. They were always in the back offices. I worked retail all of my life & this company was by far the worst I ever worked for. I had several employees & 1 manager who absolutely agreed with this assessment. They throw employees & managers alike, to the wolves, with no training, no handbook on how to do what they expect. My manager would say 'This MUST be done in 30 minutes'. But declined to show me how it could be done. Saying, 'I already did my time in the trenches'. Also, when I dropped a glass vase at the register, because I was developing a very serious carpal tunnel problem, a manager blocked my exit, sayingI could not leave until the line of customers was gone. Even though I stated that the pain in my hands was making it hard to grasp items to ring up. The manager told me, 'Yea, my hands hurt too. But you cannot leave until all the customers have been rung up'. This is unacceptable behavior from management. I ended up having 3 surgeries for carpal tunnel syndrome.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Make pay more competitive and encourage less gossip in the work place.

What I like about the company

I was allowed to be creative with displays and I got to choose the department I worked in so I was interested in my work.

What I dislike about the company

The managers never communicated so one manager would ask you to do something and another would get angry you weren't doing what you were supposed to. In addition, the managers talked bad about one another and other coworkers.

What I like about the company

The company is helpful and welcoming. The job is simple. The pay is above minimum wage.

There are parts of the store that have not been cleaned since the opening over a decade ago. Most likely not a nation-wide problem, but the only problem I have with the company.

Company Culture

Enjoyed time at TJMAXX, but it wasn’t a long time fit.

Teamwork

Had a great partner

Freedom to work independently

Didn’t have a direct daily supervisor.

Internal Communication

Most communication was district level.

Work-Life Balance

Challenging Work

Didn’t have tools to be overly successful.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Give the LP team better equipment in order to help save the company money.

What I like about the company

Fosters an inclusive atmosphere for all employees. Great employee discount. Hours and pay compares well with competitors.

What I dislike about the company

Did not support hands on apprehensions. This is actually more dangerous to the security team. Also doesn’t help them be very successful.
