Cashier

June 2019 • Meriden, CT

What I liked

Very face paced and helped me gain experience with customer service and getting better with transactions and sales.

What I wish was different

Communication among coworkers and management was a mess so more clear instructions from both parties can make this workplace more efficient

Advice

Patience is the key with any job, especially jobs that are customer service driven where one has to deal with all kinds of people. If you are able to interact with a variety of different people, then that is definitely a valuable asset for any future endeavor

Retail Salesperson

June 2018 - August 2019 • Paramus, NJ

What I liked

The other staff were extremely friendly and all treated me like family.

What I wish was different

I wish there were more associates to work to carry furniture. We would always struggle carrying items from the floor to outside and scramble to fill positions if someone was not able to make it to work. I would say we were extremely understaffed.

Advice

Remember to speak your mind and advocate for yourself. If you take on too much work that you know you can't handle, you will burn yourself out. Also, wear comfortable shoes. Walking around all day in cushion-less shoes is horrible.

Cashier

May - August 2019 • Nashville, TN

What I liked

I loved the environment of the workplace. The workers treat each other so kindly as if we are one big family. It doesn’t matter what you’re assigned, because everyone helps everyone.

What I wish was different

I wish we had a little less people just so that some people could get more hours. It’s so many people so hours have to be spread out.

Advice

One piece of advice I would like to share is to just be a hard working person.

Digital Marketing Intern

June - August 2019 • Framingham, MA

What I liked

Everyone at the company is incredibly welcoming and willing to help and talk to you about your interests. The interns have events together, like ice cream socials, lunches, and trivia networking events. I was working with real world work such as managing TJX company Instagram accounts, assisting with media planning, and taking creative content for social platforms.

What I wish was different

You are placed in one department and do work in just that department (brand, digital, consumer insights etc), and it would have been nice to be able to experience different areas as part of the program. If you ever want to shadow someone however in another department, you could definitely do that on your own time if you asked your manager.

Advice

Do not be afraid to ask for more work. If you finish a task or assignment and are not sure what to do next, take initiative and ask the people on your floor. Chances are they need help on something and it shows that you are motivated!

T.J.Maxx Brand Marketing Intern

May - August 2019 • Framingham, MA

What I liked

I loved how I was able to feel like an important part of the company. I managed the T.J. Maxx instagram and oversaw their organic influencer campaign. It was nice to feel like an integral part of the company, even as an intern. I was always working on something, and it was never "busy work"

What I wish was different

I would have liked the internship program to have a bit more of a "career development" focus. Although it was clear that the program was training interns for potential jobs at TJX, it would have been nice to have some more guidance and support when it came to post-grad career searching, etc.

Advice

It is so important to grow your network, especially when working for a large company like TJX. Even though I was working in the marketing department, I got way more out of my experience by meeting with employees in different disciplines - buying, finance, and digital.
