    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at TJ Maxx.

    Interview

    The interview itself is pretty forgiving. I was so nervous as a teenager interviewing and choked on my words! I still got the job, though. Ive grown a lot since then aha. One reason why I think I got hired was because I shook the managers hand and actually introduced myself when turning in my application.
    Look nice for the interview. It's retail. It's important! And how you look, and how social and friendly and your age all contribute to your position as well either in thr backroom, designated only to work in the fitting room or front register/sales floor.
    The interview itself is one on one and it's usually scheduled one after the other. Fairly quick and simple questions. Questions are straightfoward like "why should we hire you" and "whats your greatest weakness".
