I applied online – interviewed at T.K. Maxx in April 2015.
I applied online and was sent an email inviting me to an interview the following weekend with the day/time and where the interview was being held. I applied for a new store that was opening so the interview was held at a T.K Maxx in the local area. When I arrived I was shown to a room with other people who were there for an interview. We sat at tables in 4's and various managers gave presentations on customer service. We were then told that we had half an hour to fill out a set of scenario questions that were on the table in front of us. There were about 10 scenarios to complete and each had statements you had to tick for which you most agreed with and then a box underneath so you could explain why you chose this answer, this part was done in silence. There was a certain score you had to get on this to be able to be given an interview, they were marked straight after everyone completed the questions. If you passed this, the interview itself was a one to one and was very simple with general questions about past experience and skills.

I applied online and received a call for an interview a couple of days later. I had an initial interview with the "hiring assitant"; he asked the standard questions as he had not clue of the specifics of the role; he was there for an "assesment of my character"; what do i know about the company, etc. the questions that lost me was " what's the minimuim salary you'd work for"... once I heard this question I knew I didn't want to work for a company lookin to pay the bare minimum, and I guess it all went downhill from there. Oddly enough was invited for a second interview with the manager. Perhaps because I already had the initial interview in my mind Ididnt make much of an effort on the second one. I asked a few questions regarding their startegy; the answers obly reinforced my feeling towards the role.

They asked me less personal questions and more about working and situations, for example what interested me about the company, a situation you found yourself in where you had to do something you didnt want to and they got me to ask 2 customers a few questions about shopping and cutomer service in store

I had a video interview with TJX Europe a couple of weeks ago. I suggest you read through the company business model and make a draft of the most common competency questions asked. In addition, stay focused and don't think too much about how you look on camera. There are 10 questions in total and there is chance to practice.
