Associate Coort Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Eatontown, NJ

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at TJ Maxx in December 2013.

Interview Details – I filled out the application for seasonal hired around Christmas time and got a phone called a couple days later for interview. I feel like if you have reference from people who work there , that would be your benefit to get a job easier. I applied for markdowns position and we spend about 15 minutes for an interview. Then a couple days later I got a phone called for orientation and started working the next day after orientation. So my process took around over a week or so.

Interview Question – Nothing unexpected and difficult. Mostly about my experience with working somewhere and any experience with register or merchandise. They train you when you do orientation and start working anyway.   Answer Question

Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee
Cadillac, MI

I applied in-person and the process took 3 days - interviewed at TJ Maxx in March 2013.

Interview Details – I attended a job fair where they were hiring for a new store coming into town. There was no less than 50 people at the time I went to fill out my application and do the on the spot interview. There were several managers from other stores (including what was to become the management for our store) and we were told that we would hear something within about a week. I believe I was called within two days of my interview.

Interview Question – The questions were pretty standard: What type of work are you looking for? What was your favorite job experience? What was your least favorite? Why? Nothing too difficult for the most part but then I felt like it was a very friendly experience without the normal grilling that some do during an interview.   Answer Question
