    Average Interview

    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.

    Customer Service Associate Interview

    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

    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.

    Store Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at TJ Maxx in May 2017.

    Interview

    Typical behavioral based retail questions. The first interview was with a recruiter. She was very nice, cordial easy to speak with. I was passed on to the next level of interviews but declined. Something just felt off with the communication between their recruiting and field management team. I live in another state and they didn't pass that info on to their DM. I got an email from him to his recruiters wondering why we couldn't meet face to face. That type of information was pretty pertinent. Unfortunately, I had to cancel my interview because my wife went into labor. They wanted to reschedule for another day, but the only day they could do it was the day I was moving out of state, picking up family from the airport and taking my newborn in for his checkup. before we left. Pretty set appointments that I just couldn't change. She seemed a little put off that I wasn't able to do it that day. I literally could have done it at any other time on any other day. She told me that I could get a hold of my recruiter when I was settled. Her vibe just came off for lack of a better word, weird. It just didn't feel right so I withdrew. I believe that jobs go both ways. They should appreciate what you bring to the table, and you should appreciate that they are giving you an opportunity to grow with their organization. And that is not how it came across.

    Interview was in person; professional but also lax, it was one on one with the hiring manager. The whole process took about a week and I received an offer on the spot essentially.
