Payroll Analyst

Mississauga, Ontario
Entry Level, Early Career

Here at TJX Canada, we strive our hardest to make sure that, every day, our customers are able to find the latest and greatest designer brand names for less than they'd pay elsewhere. When they walk through the doors of our stores, whether it's a Winners, HomeSense, or Marshalls, savvy shoppers know they'll experience the "Thrill of the Find," which, if you're curious, feels like a slight breeze blowing over the surface of your skin-not a bad feeling, if we do say so ourselves.

But you're not here to feel the breeze. You're here to see if working with TJX Canada is right for you. To help with your decision, we'd like to introduce you to someone who once faced the same choice you have to make.

Meet Jace.

Jace is one of our Payroll Analysts. He's responsible for the accurate and timely remittance of all statutory and 3rd party remittances and year-end reconciliation. He ensures appropriate controls for payroll and financial information, resolving all Oracle integration errors and providing assistance to the Payroll Manager as required. He is highly knowledgeable in payroll concepts, processes and legislation. He has a problem-solving attitude, strong communication skills, and an incredible attention to detail.

That attention to detail is what fuels his love for tracking and reconciling anything that has to do with payroll. He has expert technical capabilities and loves computer systems. Unlike us mere mortals, he's not afraid to dig deep to find the truth in empirical data.

This is Jace. He is one of us.

If you do decide to apply for this position, and we agree that this is the right job for you, you'll be supported by a plethora of internal programs whose only focus is the continued progress of your career. At TJX Canada, we do everything we can to help you achieve your full potential. But we can't do it all ourselves. You'll need to bring the ambition, the motivation, and the drive.

So what do you think? Like Jace, are you one of us?

  • Provide payroll detail for monthly reconciliation of payroll bank account.

Sounds rather challenging and exciting, right? Let's hope so, because if it sounds easy or boring, there's a good chance this job isn't for you. But if it does sound right for you, here's why we know you'll be able to handle those challenges:

  • You must be a Certified Payroll Manager (CPM) with at least six years of multi-province, full-cycle payroll experience, including account reconciliation and year end.
  • You have advanced knowledge of g/l reconciliation.
