pls consider applying for a tjx company! this includes marshalls, tjmaxx, homegoods and sierra trading post. (for non-usa pls see here).
when i was hired, i was 16 and had bright pink hair. i’ve worked at tjmaxx and marshalls with coworkers of every age, nationality and appearance. so this is my experience and my opinions (and it’s not the same everywhere u go), but trust me this isn’t an advertisement or promotion.
hours are very flexible and there are plenty of options! work for a few months and find out u can only work one or two days a week? no problem. requesting days off is an easy process (i had to take 3 weeks off a time (twice!) and it was no problem!). however, summer shifts are usually nights and weekends. there is an open door policy which means u can talk with ur managers directly (and it’s very common they will work beside u at points). when u fill in ur application u can put in a preferred name and that’s what u will get on ur name tag. they will hire just about any age so if u are older and in between jobs or younger just starting ur first job, this is a great option.
got visible tattoos or piercings? dyed hair? no problem. in addition (and this is what i’ve experienced from marshalls/tjmaxx) there are plenty of different areas to work in the store. if cashiering isn’t for u, u can work in the back room or the fitting room. so included in this, if u are disabled and can’t work in certain areas, they will make any accommodation that u need. as far as tjmaxx and marshalls, there is no set uniform. there is a dress code and suggested options, but overall very easy to follow. and on the off chance u do need clothes? employees and their families have a 10% off discount on everything in store. everyone is trained equally, in every department and machine and job. there’s no gender (or age) bias to who can do what. and in addition to all of this, tjx plans to increase their minimum wage to $9 an hour for all employees. u are given recognition and rewards for going above and beyond, giving great customer service and being a great associate so u never feel forgotten or inferior.
