Anonymous Employee
Fountain Valley, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at TJX Companies in September 2011.

Interview Details – I needed a job and someone at TJM had quit so my friend got me an interview. I dropped off my resume and had an open interview on the spot, it was very laid back, the most laid back interview i had ever had. I was offered a position with minimal hours and ended up getting 32 a week because of my dlligence. Yet after management was reinstated to the store manager, all did a 180. I found out the manager that hired me was from the region to improve the store i was at.

Interview Question – None, very typical   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – too simple, they had great management at the time i was hired

Difficult Interview

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate

The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at TJX Companies in July 2010.

Interview Details – The first interview was with just a regular manager and the secnd interview was by the store manager. This particular location seems to hire "cute" girls and barely any guys. The managers are all men so i guess that you can expect that. Interviewing was rated as difficult. They acted as if you applied for some big time paying position..i mean it's only Tjmaxx.

Interview Question – Give your definition of customer service? How would you react to associate dishonesty?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I wanted to negotiate the pay because i was not satifised and i was declined. For every year that you work there, you pay rate will increase by a quarter.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at TJX Companies in October 2009.

Interview Details – I waited for around 20 minutes for the manager. Since I don't really have any retail experience, the interview lasted only for 5-10 mins bec. he didn't know what to ask me. I was offered the job anyway.

Interview Question – Tell me about yourself?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – He didn't offer any salary. I didn't ask either. What I had in mind was just to have this job so I will have the experience and the location was near my home.
