Assistant Store Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (Cleveland, OH) in June 2016.

Interview

Very detailed and 1.5 hours long. The district manager asks very good probing questions and also goes into detail about the position and the company. TJ Maxx is a little behind on technology and the district manager explained why. Their focus is more on the customer so their technology needs to improve, which it will. But, they're trying to keep payroll in the stores as well.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Recruiter was one hour late after I had confirmed what time the interview was scheduled. (Recruiter e-mailed an interview time that did not correspond with the time zone change.) When I was finally called, he could not remember if he had initiated contact with me or vise versa. When talking though interview, felt as if it was rushed and wasn't sincerely wanted to get to know me as a possible hire. Interview felt very pencil whipped. Also was told in the beginning that the position was already filled and there may be an opening in the future. My follow up question was how will I know if they job will become open, and I was told to watch the job board.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at TJ Maxx.

    Interview

    The store manager spent almost the whole interview describing TJMaxx and that he usually likes to promote from within and that this job and by the way he describe the position it gave me the impression that this was just that " a job" and how he also described retail is retail and is the same everywhere you go mentality. For that I am glad I did not get "the job". There is so much more to retail I can only hope to connect with a company with a more progressive and dynamic culture and one which I would be able to grow with and teach that there is more than retail 101.

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at TJ Maxx in July 2012.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview were I was asked about my past experiences and duties. Then interviewed with a district manager who was very rude, short, and the type of person I would not want to work for. Asked me about past experiences and usual star questions. Said the training program is 12 weeks and that you start at the lowest position possible in management and after 4 week intervals you get a review and then if your lucky you get the position you originally interviewed for.
