Cashier/Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in Akron, OH
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (Akron, OH) in May 2015.

Interview

Short and straight to the point. Basic questions and asked about previous work history. Got a call back the next day with a job offer. Applied for cashier but was trained only for merchandising associate, didn't sign up for that to be honest but managers are in the process of cross training all employees. Orientation is the longest process (sat and watched about 10 DVDS) and paperwork.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (Opelika, AL) in July 2013.

    Interview

    I started off by first meeting them in person and later discussed a time to meet. There was only one interview where they really just tried to get to know me and see if I had any experience. Some of their questions where situational but for the most part they were HR related and geared to getting to know you. The employer was nice and held they interview in one of the offices in the back. After the interview, I received a phone call offering the position and wanted to know if I could meet to fill out paperwork.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TJ Maxx.

    Interview

    I brought my application in personally. I approached a cashier very upbeat and politely and the employees were so impressed with my perky demeanor they introduced me to the manager immediately. I had an interview on the spot and received a call a few days later to come in for orientation. The interview was pretty relaxed. The manager asked general questions about previous jobs, how I would handle certain scenarios, and personal questions.
