Interview

I dropped off my application and got a call from the manager 1 hour later ask me to come in the next day for an interview. The manager was very nice and friendly, interview went for about 15 minutes, very basic questions. She was very interested and wanted to check my references before i can come for training class/orientation day. I got offered the job 1 week later.

    Everything is still in progress. I had an interview last week with a hiring manager that went really well. The store manager was on vacation so I am waiting for him to call to set up an interview. The store I applied to has a two part interview process.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at TJX Companies (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    application was long. interviewers were all very nice and said they enjoy working together. I was the one asking most of the questions about the job to try to figure out if I would like it. I wanted to find out how much they were paying but instead they asked me how much I would want. That's always very uncomfortable.

    Interview

    I had two interviews, the first with the hiring manager, which was a great interview. We did not really discuss much about the job itself, but I felt very at ease. My second interview with the store manager was awkward and did not leave me very excited about the chance to come to work.

    • There weren't any unexpected questions in this interview. It was very run of the mill.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at TJX Companies (Norwalk, CA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    You receive a call from them after they review your application, they call you and give you a few interview dates and you choose which is more convenient for you. You go in and they take you to either the office or the back room and they ask you the standard interview questions, and then they ask you about yourself. If I'm remembering correctly they ask you to fill out a few papers as well.
