    CRM Headquartters Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at T.K. Maxx.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at T.K. Maxx in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is very basic. At my branch, they made us do a team-building exercise, so we all got into pairs and had to find out as much about each other as we could - then we had to do a small presentation on what we found out about the other person. Then they asked us to go on to the shop floor and write down on a piece of paper things that make TK Maxx unique and different from other high street retailers - this task took about 15 minutes.

    After that, we all had one on one interviews with the standard questions, why do you want to work here? Your hobbies/ interests, past experience, what you can bring to the role, etc..

    I applied online – interviewed at T.K. Maxx.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was very easy. First off you watch and video about the company. Then you are given a booklet with questions of what you would do in certain situations. It's very easy and there are multiple choice answers. Then as long as you get over a certain mark on those answers you get a 15 minute interview. Very easy relaxed interview asking about experience, what you think of the company, about previous jobs, what motivates you and your availability. I then got called the next day to be offered the job.
