    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (Jacksonville, FL) in May 2014.

    Interview

    It was quite long, maybe 3 weeks total. It's best to go in person to ensure your application does not get lost in the shuffle. Id say only apply if you have time to wait.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (North Andover, MA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    After submitting a paper application in-store and calling that specific location a few times afterward to show interest I was asked to come in for an interview. During the interview they asked pretty straight forward questions about experience, availability, references, and what positions I was interested in and if I had any personal ambitions to go to college or climb the ladder inside the T.J.X companies. There were no weird curve ball questions like "if you were a kitchen appliance..".

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (Tustin, CA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was very simple. They take you to the backroom and sit you down with an Assistant manager first, then a second round with the Store Manager. It took me many attempts by visiting the store to make sure my application went through to them before receiving a call-back. When the interview came around, the overall questions asked were very generic.
