    Merchandise Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at TJ Maxx in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied on their site, and got a call about 2 weeks later. When I came into the interview, the people at the counter had no idea what to do or who to call, even when I told them who called me for the interview. Finally, the manager came in to interview me. She was nice enough, but I could tell that she wasn't used to interviews. The interview was laid back, she asked me questions about my previous job, why I left--the usual. After the interview, she told me I would have to fill out a hard copy of the application with references and if my references check out, she would call me by the end of the week for orientation.

    The questions aren't hard, they're just based on your personal experiences. If you don't have any work experience, go off of school and volunteer experience.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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!

    Customer Experience Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brookfield, WI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brookfield, WI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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.
