    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..

    Application Details

    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.

    It was more of an informal chat and a couple of questions on my experience and my abilities. I had very little experience at the time but still got the job! She also asked me to go out on the shop floor and ask a couple of customers to fill out a shop questionnaire to see how my communication and customer service skills were.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at T.K. Maxx in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    Interviews usually happen after an application is handed into the store. Never known them do a group interview, usually a one on one, lasting no longer than half an hour. Questions are very standard... name a time when you have had good customer service, what would you do if you had a difficult customer..

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too difficult. Probably 'what can you bring to the bussiness'   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
