    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Home Goods in June 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview for several divisions of TJX, Marshall's reached out to me, I wanted HomeGoods, he hooked me up with HomeGoods, 2nd HR phone interview went great, was told I'd get a call from DM or assistant that week, 3 follow up calls and a month later I got an in person interview scheduled 65 miles away from my home, after another company expressed interest in me, I figured until it came thru, I could still go on this interview as this is really where I wanted to work. No problem, it was an interview, showed up 15 minutes early, waited an hour 45 minutes after scheduled time for interview to start, thought it went great, sounded enthused on both sides, asked if he could call my references, asked if I could start immediately, asked my salary range, said it was high but was within range, I said I would listen to an offer, he said not to worry, asked me about locations, went over whole training process, said I'd hear within a week. Super enthused, sent a follow up a week later when I didn't hear after initial thank you that day. I didn't really want to accept other job and knew I had time. After no response I was forced to accept other position. 2 unanswered follow up letters, sent a third follow up letter 3 weeks later, as I took the other offer that I really didn't want, but took due to financial reasons, and said, hey, I'm just not available immediately, I'd need a 2 week notice. I got a note we filled the position? Strung along for 2 1/2 months very disappointing, I really liked the company, wanted to work there, waited patiently for phone calls, that never came? Couldn't turn down an offer when they were stringing me along, although I really preferred this company. Don't lead candidates on if you have no interest, it's not professional or fair.

    Interview

    Great! They interviewer was very friendly, listened well, and made the interview as simple. She did not try to trick me with certain questions or make them confusing. The interview was very straightforward and went quickly. There was also no line or waiting, so I received full attention and did not feel rushed. She was also honest about the details of the job, the payment, and the duration of the job, as far as keeping me aware that after the grand opening, the management would decide who to keep and who to layoff

She asked a lot of questions that were pretty easy questions about past experiences at jobs. She said i would definitely be hearing back from them and the next day(today) i got a call back offering a part-time position up to 30 hours a week and scheduling orientation. So hopefully its a fun job!

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Home Goods in November 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through Snagajob as a seasonal employee. The store manager called me two days after I applied for the position. We set up the interview and I went to the coordinator so she could let the manager know I was there. I waited about 10 minutes and he came up to the front and we went back to his office to interview. We only talked for about two minutes when I let him know that I was interviewed previously by his assistant manager. So he called her into the office. They were very laid back and he basically talked the entire time and let me know I had the job since I had been interviewed by his assistant manager already.

    When I was interviewed previously by the assistant manager she asked me a lot of situation questions.
