Fine place to work especially if you're only starting in retail. Don't get deceived by the hourly wage though as you'll probably be on 12 hour contracts for a while. Usually get more hours but you'll be lucky to get 20-25 hrs a week. Was doing stockroom most of the time, things had to be done fast rather than properly. Sometimes unreasonable processing times. Sometimes called in 6 days a week for 4 hours every afternoon, thought that was very inconvenient. Management in the store I worked was fine. Enjoyed working with fellow employees. Ok experience overall.
Pros
Good hourly wage, good craic amongst employees, management was ok
Cons
Working against the time, inconvenient rosters, 12 hour contracts

I felt very unwelcome and uncomfortable.
I received no support at the start of my job and felt as if I wasn’t welcome in the company. The managers were rude and had a lot of horrible comments.

My personal experience was very little opportunities for internal progression. My Personal Development Plan appeared to be more busy work than actual progression to the next role. Company prefers to recruit externally due to many staff members looking to progress and prevent disruptions among staff.

L'emploi était sur et agréable. L'équipe était sympatique et les managers compréhensifs. Des avantages intéressants et une bonne atmosphere de travail dans l'ensemble. Point négatif principal serait le travail incessant dans un magasin de tres grande taille, mais chacun son truc, ca ne derange pas certains, moi oui.
Pros
Salaire, avantages, adaptabilité
Cons
Beaucoup de travail et petite équipe pour grand magasin

Managerial expectations can be a bit ridiculous (obviously drawn up by someone who's never worked on a sales floor.) Departments can sometimes be too big and spread out for one person to manage alone.Managers bend over backwards to cater to difficult customers. Having one person working the fitting room on a busy Saturday is asking for trouble!

In saying that, the pay and hours are extremely reasonable for retail. There was good scope for progression within the company and the workplace culture was an extremely positive one. Management could do more to praise staff for a job well done though!

Love the fast pace, it's not for the faint hearted but I thrive on this, from receiving deliveries at back door to shop floor in an allotted time frame, it's certainly always interesting, love the off price fundamental basis of the buisness, the company's ethil being the thrill of the hunt, you just never know what you are going to find, from a thimble to an anchor.

No day is the same at TK MAXX, which is what I love about it. The pace is fast, and never is there a dull moment.
On top of the that, the co-workers and wider network within the TK MAXX company are the best people you can meet. Never before have I found more loyal, willing and dedicated staff. For myself, I have found that my manager & her managers are dedicated to my success almost as much as I am, which I fully appreciate.
Pros
The people, the culture, the brands, the success of the off price model
Cons
Quick reactionary changes, Can't control stock levels

During my time at TK Maxx I was for the majority of my employment on tills but for the last week of my employment I was put on floor as it is policy at the company to be trained on at least two departments.
I learned the importance of individual customers experience and the importance of bringing them back through a helpful and warm service which the customers noted.

Management were very helpful and informative through my whole time there.

Most days especially leading up to the Christmas were very busy which were managed through the strong teamwork ethic.

The only difficulty in the company was learning the layout during the first few days but it was quickly learned then there was no other issues.

The most enjoyable aspect of the job was being part of the team there, I helped as well as was helped at various times. I would also have to mention making the customer laugh or even smile was always enjoyable.
Pros
Hours were always high. Team. Training.
Cons
Contract was temporary.
