    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (Massapequa, NY) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I turned in the application and was interviewed on the spot by a manager. After they checked my references I was offered the job. One tip I would give to someone applying is to contact your references beforehand and make sure they are expecting the call. They had difficulty reaching one of my references and it delaying my hiring by a week.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (Plattsburgh, NY) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I didn't recieve a call until about a month after aplying. At the inteview they asked me about 5 questions, and if i would be willing to cashier because I had Merchendiser listed on my aplication. Hired me on the spot and I had orientation about 5 days later.

    The dress code is pretty casual, but obviously a bit consevative with skirt length, no tak tops, and no blue jeans. Keep this in mind when dressing for the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (Austin, TX) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Make sure you fill out the in store application. I filled out the online one and brought it in, and it just created a big mess. They ended up loosing a big part of it, and I ended up having to fill out a whole new application.

    The interview was pretty easy, it was a group one. If they ask for volunteers or people willing to role play, I would definitely raise your hand and try to be noticed. Make sure you speak up, they were looking for that in all of their questions.

    After the group interview, they brought some of us back for individual interviews. Basic questions, really only cared about previous retail experience and hours of availability.

    **** You have to earn your hours, they are EXTREMELY STINGY WITH GIVING OUT HOURS TO NEW HIRES.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked where I wanted to be in 3 years. Its a retail job, who really cares?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. They start everyone at 7.50/hr, with very FEW HOURS.
