T.J. Maxx, a retail store founded in Massachusetts during the mid 1970’s, specializes in offering name brand clothing, shoes, and apparel at prices discounted to what one might find in many retail stores. If you are on a budget but love name brands, you'll love working for this company as you'll get employee discounts on name brand items. Does it get any better than that?
In fact, this is T.J. Maxx’s niche in the retail business, being the largest of such discount or “off-price” retailers.
As an interesting fact, T.J. Maxx operates in Europe under the name T.K. Maxx. The Company offers, compared to most retailers of similar type, a competitive benefits package including medical, dental, vision, and 401(k), to name a few. Also, T.J. Maxx extends certain store discounts to its people, as well as credit union access.
Perhaps more uniquely, employees can take advantage of programs such as mortgage assistance, home and auto insurance benefits, and access to U.S. Savings Bonds. In addition to a bevy of sales positions, T.J. Maxx makes concerted efforts to recruit management talent from both the college setting and from those exiting the military.
