    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at TJ Maxx.

    Interview Details

    They contacted me via phone 2 weeks after turning in my application. They told me to come in for an interview. There are two rounds of interviews because they want to see how well you're able to communicate with different managers. The whole process took about 3 weeks: 2 weeks of waiting for an initial call and 2 interviews on the third week. They'll tell you if you got the job or not on the spot at the second interview.

    Applied online, got an electronic interview request where they asked you basic questions and you record your answers. Didn't move pass that phase. I thought the interviewing was very awkward.

    Interview Details

    I submitted an application. Asked to speak to one of the managers and introduced myself, told her I was looking for a job. They called me back within a week or so. The interview was very easy and relaxed. They just want to know that you are all about customer satisfaction and have a good attitude.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at TJ Maxx.

    Interview Details

    It was pretty straight forward. Talked about what does customer service mean to you and talk about bad customer service.
    They asked what times I was available for work.
    There really wasn't any type of wage negotiation they were straight forward as to how much everyone gets paid.

    Negotiation Details
    There really wasn't any negotiation or at least it didn't seem like I could.
    It was minimum wage...it seems like a lot of people get hired at TJ Maxx and a lot of them quit

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at TJ Maxx in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    First, it's the "tell me about yourself question" then you will get stuff like... what is teamwork? what is customer service? what tasks at previous jobs did you do? then deeper stuff like "when faced with a tough problem in school or work, how did you resolve it?" Then they asked why should we hire you? will you be willing to have flexibility for any position (cashier, dressing room, merchandising, etc)

    Reasons for Declining

    For how much work they are asking for, 7.50 is cheap and scraping the bottom of the bucket. nice people, but not enough pay to make it worth it.
