    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at TJ Maxx.

    Interview

    They watched work I'd done and liked it I guess. I have very good organizational skills and am a good multitasker. I'm not sure I can put a whole 50 words in this comment. As the few words referenced sums it up.

    Interview

    It was a mass hire for a opening store. I was interviewed on the spot and nailed it! Of course I have over 3 years in retail experience so it was a little easier for me to answer their questions. I had a second interview with the store manager and they should be contacting me shortly!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at TJ Maxx (Miami Lakes, FL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I filled out an application online, was contacted a few days later, and I got a interview the following week. There were two managers that interviewed me. The interview went well in my opinion. The impression that I got was that I fitted the bill, but the only hindrance I may have is if there was a better candidate, but that applied to everyone. They called back within a week, and I started orientation the following week.
    This is my second time working for the company.
    The questions were overall generic and expectant. My recommendation is to do your research on both the questions AND the company. Be prepared for anything.
    They look for confidence, decent answers, and overall presentation. Have all of these qualities or more and you are set!
    Dress professional and be as flexible as you can. Good luck to you!

    Interview

    It was really simple. I applied online first and received a phone call within a few days of applying to make an appointment for an interview. The interview was very relaxed and the managers were really welcoming and easy to talk to. This is my first real job besides babysitting and I was really happy they offered me a position without any retail experience ( I have a lot of leadership positions though!).
