Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at TJ Maxx (Littleton, CO) in June 2015.

Interview

The interview process was fairly simple. You get asked a couple of standard questions about customer service/how you'd handle various scenarios. Pretty basic common sense questions. It was not hard at all.

Interview Questions

  • What does customer service mean to you? What is teamwork for you? Do you have any experience?   Answer Question

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at TJ Maxx (Baton Rouge, LA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview at TJ Maxx was very easy. They were really friendly. The interview over all lasted 30 minutes. The Manager was very professional. She liked my professionalism and experience and made an offer right away, and I accepted it. I have always loved their stores (Tjmaxx, Marshall's & Home Goods), so its was a no brainer for me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at TJ Maxx in July 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process were actually pretty standard! My friend that works with TJ Maxx recommended the company one day while I was there shopping so I filled out an application and came back the next day for my interview! I went through my orientation and started within the next week. The questions were pretty generic: What would you do if a customer was upset because there were two similar items and one item was more expensive than the other? What is good customer service? What are your goals?

    That's one thing I really like about TJX - they seem to care about where you're headed and try to help get you there as much as possible.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult questions to answer are always the ones that start with "tell me about your weaknesses"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There isn't much room for negotiating at all - I believe you could ask for up to $0.75 more than what they initially offer you, but I wouldn't count on getting it. There are too many people willing to work for minimum wage that you probably wouldn't get offered more than that.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at TJ Maxx.

    Interview

    They saw that I had 2 yrs exp, so an interview was scheduled 1 day after I dropped off my app., then they called 1 day after the interview to hire me and I was working in 5 days. This was great! Before xmas i was working 20-30 hrs per week, and training included knowing how to do a lot of things, not just cashiering, so it makes the team stronger so we can help everyone better. Closing shift is my favorite because they schedule to leave at 10:15, but if things are not done, we will work till 11:30 or later, thereby adding more time to our check.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    All of us cashiers already know that if that's your job there is NO negotiating, and if i am over 50, and half of my coworkers are under 20, they'll just skip hiring me and hire a teenager who is fine with minimum wage.
