    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (Florence, AL).

    Interview

    The hiring process was very slow. I got an interview after reaching out to them and they weren't prepared for it. I went in, was asked to wait for 15 minutes on a hiring manager to get ready for me, was escorted to a back room, and asked a few questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (Cleveland, OH) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Pretty short. They seemed desperate. They asked a bunch of questions then they explained how it is related to the job. Two other managers were also present and they kept talking which was pretty rude but it didn't matter. It wasn't bad at all. I knew they needed people so they hired me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (Kahului, HI) in July 2015.

    Interview

    For it was one on one, I applied in the store when it was empty and I got interviewed right away after filling out my paper work. It was very easy and fun my manager was from a store on Oahu. I really loved talking because I had the fear that it was going to be difficult like some people say but instead it was the complete opposite. TJ Maxx has outstanding people managing it but the lack of hours and opportunities just isn't as great. For your first job you'll love it and it will make you feel like your surrounded by family.

    Interview

    Sat down one on one with a manager. She was very friendly and kind of like a mother figure. It was more of a chat session than actual interview questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (Capitol Heights, MD) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The hiring process consisted of two interviews with the hiring manager and then the overall store manager. It took about a week for each interview to be scheduled and to set up the next one. For a retail store that hires teenagers I was very surprised at how strict and serious the policies were that had to be followed. You would think that you were working at a bank or a accounting firm for how many rules that have to be followed to work at tj maxx. Seemed like a little overkill.

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (Southbury, CT).

    Interview

    Pretty basic, they ask a lot of "what if" scenario based behavioral questions. They want to know that you're neat and able to complete basic tasks like organizing shelves and what not.
