Application

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

Interview

After initial application (I applied online), they have a group interview, which can vary in size depending on the stores needs.

Be prepared for team based activities and random questions looking for creative and upbeat answers. They want to know that you can be a team player, know about the company and about excellent customer service - but they especially want polite, friendly and happy staff (you need to be a 'happy-go-lucky' kinda person to get the most out of TK Maxx anyway!)

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at T.K. Maxx (Cardiff, Wales (UK)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and got an email giving you time slots on what is best for you. Filled in an application form of basic details such as employment and experience. It began with them introducing themselves and then we were put into pairs to learn about each other and present back on what we learnt about the other person. We were then put into groups of three or four and asked to pick two items from the table and present them on why we chose them/prices/functionality etc. After that, we had a test of customer service and had a 1 on 1 where they ask to tell them about yourself, your hours and why you want to work for them. The process was very enjoyable and fun!

    You can drop your cv in store and hope you get a call if vacancies are available. Once you get a call either you will be asked to do a small initial test or will directly be called for the interview depending on the time you apply for the job (Christmas temporary associates do the test).

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at T.K. Maxx (Torquay, England (UK)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    A phone interview happened first, where I was aksed very brief questions about previous emplyment and a few simple questions about certain situations, i.e. customer service. Then when you are accepted to come in to the store for an interview the first thing is a questionnaire to fill out, which tests your personality and skills. The questionnaire is quite tricky; I was told that only 35% of people pass it. If you pass that then you recieve a 1-1 interview, which was much easy than the questionnaire and very relaxed; they care more about you as a person rather than what skills you possess.

    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.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at T.K. Maxx (London, England (UK)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The first part of the interview process included filling out an assessment based on customer service skills and your own personal characteristics. You then speak with the store manager briefly on why you want to work at TK Maxx. The interview process was easy, however, the branch I applied for was highly disorganized. They gave me a position and a start date, however, a few days later changed the start date and never contacted me again.
