    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied in store and heard back within a week for an interview. The interview had to be rescheduled because I was going out of town and the manager was very understanding and nice. Once I went in for the interview the manager was again very nice and had a smile on her face. She made me feel comfortable about the interview process.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at TJ Maxx in July 2017.

    Interview

    Went into the store and dropped off my application. By some miracle they happened to be doing interviews on the same day so they scheduled me in. Ended up doing a group interview with 5 other people. This was the first job where I did a group interview and overall I thought it went good. They ended up calling me 2 days later and scheduled me for orientation.

    Anonymous Employee in Biddeford, ME
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (Biddeford, ME).

    Interview

    I filled out an application and delivered it in-store. I went back to follow up within a week where I met one of the managers and scheduled an interview for a few days later. It was less of an interview really and more of an information session about the job... They didn't ask me many questions and spent most of the time telling me how easy the work would be. I walked out with a start date for the following week.

    Overnight Stocker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Easton, MA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (Easton, MA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I sent my resume to TJ Maxx from Indeed and received a call to schedule an interview. The woman interviewing me was very nice and asked me typical interview questions, ie. what good customer service means to me. She seemed very impressed with my answered and even told me so, I also offered open availability. After about 35 minutes of questions about working as a team, customer service issues, what I had to offer as an employee, etc. I asked some questions and the interviewer told me that she'd love to have me on board and was very impressed with my answers, but will get back to me after the other manager called my references and reviewed my application. I never heard from them again, and they never contacted my references. They left me at least somewhat hopeful and waiting for their call, it was kind of unprofessional to just leave me hanging.
