I’ve been working in the retail buying field for 6 years for TJX Companies. I started with the company as a temp and worked my way up to Senior Merchandise Assistant (most retailers consider this an Assistant Buyer role). I also spent a year as an Allocation Analyst with TJX.
In my current role, I work directly with the buying team and our vendors. I analyze sales data to make recommendations to the buying team, shop competitors, manage the OTB, attend vendor appointments, manage purchase orders and deadlines, and I am in constant communication with everyone from Planning to Product Development to Transportation.
