Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at T.K. Maxx in April 2015.

Interview

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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at T.K. Maxx (London, England (UK)) in September 2013.

    Interview

    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..

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.
