    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (Boston, MA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed by phone - screening to proceed to next step. HR outlined next steps and timing. Never heard from them so I followed up and was told that they were fortunate enough to find many qualified candidates, and thanked me for my interest. I followed up again to get some feedback about what in my background did not make me qualified to proceed in the process. They could not provide an answer that made sense to me.

    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.
