WHAT’S THE OFFER?

This pathway will prepare you to run your own store, or give you the tools and knowledge to explore an alternative pathway such as a career in retail operations. It blends training with on-the-job experience to make sure you have the skills and knowledge to become one of our future retail leaders. That starts with your initial weeks participating in intensive training to help you understand our business, before you take on an Assistant Manager role in your first store, under the mentorship of the Store Manager.

As an Assistant Manager you’ll learn how to tackle everything from recruiting and developing your team, to creating the treasure-hunt experience for our customers, to making merchandising decisions. Deliveries arrive at our stores every day (and we never know what’s coming), and inventory gets turned around quickly, so you’ll gain that experience at greater speed and with more variety than in any other retail environment.

 

WHERE COULD IT TAKE YOU?

Once you’ve gained in-store experience and built on your success, you will be best prepared to move into a Store Manager role. Other career paths include opportunities in store operations, field management, distribution, or the corporate office. However, many of our people find their niche in store management and stay with us for their entire careers.

 

WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

Our business leaders are intelligent risk-takers and entrepreneurial thinkers who treat their stores as their own businesses. In particular we’re looking for:


·         Graduating Seniors with a history of strong academic performance


·         Previous experience in retail or customer service environments strongly preferred. 


·         Previous experience or demonstrated ability to manage, develop  and motivate a large team


·         Excellent interpersonal, communication and follow through skills


·         A passion for business, and strong sales performance, and strategic thinking


·         Active and energizes by community and service activities


·         Ability and openness to relocate- strongly preferred

What's In It For You?

At TJX, you'll not only enjoy working for an industry leader, but we also strive to provide a competitive salary and benefits package.
