    Buying and Merchandising Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at T.K. Maxx (Watford, East of England, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Online application,
    Video Interview was quite tough, I was surprised to get through to the next stage, they seemed to ask lots of similar questions so I felt like I was repeating myself a lot. They asked about why you want to work for T.K.Maxx, What I know about Off-price retailing, how i would fit in with the company, the culture the company.
     Assessment Centre involved and hour long interview, they keep asking em to expand on my answers so make sure you have a lot of say without waffling. 2 group tasks were straightforward, and an analytical task, which was quite hard in the time limit but I get a bit freaked out by numbers anyway so wasn't my strongest point.

    Buying and Merchandising Placement Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at T.K. Maxx.

    Interview

    Initially, I had to submit my CV and some relatively lengthy application questions. Following this I completed three online assessments (Numerical, Verbal and Logic) and was given a video interview.

    The video interview itself was generally fine, although it is one sided and the questions are pre-recorded; this meant I felt quite uncomfortable answering the questions whilst simply looking at a big video of myself. In addition, some questions seemed very similar, e.g. I was asked both 'Outline the off-price model of buying' and 'Outline the off-price model of merchandising.' I felt this restricted me a little and I struggled to fill the time with my answer.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at T.K. Maxx (London, England (UK)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Was not the best experience, the interviewer (manager )didn't even tell me his name and was quite rude to be completely honest. I wouldn't apply for that store again. Also they do not give you feedback to say you didn't get the job. He also took a phone call and cut the interview short giving no reason to why.
