Very Easy Interview
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at TJ Maxx in November 2013.
Interview Details – Interviewed this summer for a Contract Recruiter role. The person I interviewed with was not prepared, she kept mentioning how messy her office was and we'd have to interview in a small cubby room. The room was so small we were almost touching each other. It was apparent that she had never looked at my resume because she came to the interview without it. I was a great fit for the role but I was turned off immedialtely by the unprofessional interview. She kept saying"where do I start"; I came close to saying maybe my last recruitment position may be a good start. I was so surprised that a compnay this size and with their great reputation would allow this. When the so called interview was over I had to wait in the HR lobby as she went to get her pocketbook so she could go get a coffe and snack. A complete waste of my time.
Interview Question – Whare do I start? She said this at least 4 times before she asked me any questions. Answer Question

Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at TJ Maxx in September 2013.
Interview Details – Responded to posting online. Assistant manager emailed an interview time and day. Store manager called to confirm. Arrived at interview a few minutes early. I got hired on the spot. The process was pretty comfortable. I think I impressed him with my patience when we kept getting interrupted. I also greeted the staff and welcomed them into the office. As a supervisor, I know what it's like to be in a meeting while keeping watch of the store. We built a rapport on sharing the same experiences.
Interview Question – Typical customer service questions at the management level: How do you feel about delegating tasks? What is teamwork? How do you evaluate performance? Sell me on a TJX credit card? How do you deal with laziness on your shift? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Little room for negotiation. Assistant manager was hesitant on hiring me because of my previous pay rates, but I assured him it didn't bother me and that I'd work my way up.
I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at TJ Maxx in September 2013.
Interview Details – The associate store manager asked you many questions, and if they feel you are suitable for this position, you will have a 2nd interview with the store manager, who will decide whether to hire you or not. The questions are: what does customer services mean to you, your opinion about team work, your experience about tough task, what is the most and least thing you like during your last job, how do you handle feedback from previous supervisors, how to work in multi-culture environment. I never thought finding a part-time job is so complicated in TJMaxx!
Interview Question – multiculture question Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at TJ Maxx in September 2013.
Interview Details –
Applied online and received an email within a few days to schedule a one-way video interview. This interview sets the tone for everything that follows, so be relaxed and treat it like you would if they were sitting in front of you. They know it's a different experience, so they expect some discomfort, but everyone watches it before they interview you, so make it count. They also like to talk about the one's that go bad, so you know they all get watched.
Video interview was followed by a scheduled phone interview with HR, then the hiring manager, then his boss. In-person interview was with hiring manager & 2 levels up. Very casual conversations and good connections on all phone interviews, but the in-person was tense - hiring manager was very uncomfortable with upper management, which created a difficult atmosphere.
Phone interviews narrowed pool to 5 candidates for in-person. Only 1 candidate for final round (which wasn't me).
People were very casual and easy to speak with, but strictly one way communication outside HR. No returned calls, emails or feedback after interviews, which sucks, since they consumed so much of my time during the interview process. Was a big fan, now just another former shopper.
Interview Question – No surprises, mostly conversations about experience and trying to determine if you are a good fit for the company. Answer Question
