    Sales Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Behavioral interview, asked questions about my personality, asked how I worked with other people. Overall, the interview was extremely conversational and I felt relaxed throughout the entire process. The hiring manager made me feel at ease and could tell that this was my first time applying to a job. They aren't looking for super competent people, just people who are willing to work and are looking for hours.

So when we moved and we already settled down. I applied to tj maxx menifee. At first I was confident that im gonna get the job. So i got a call and then they asked me if i can go to the store for an interview so i was pretty excited and happy. When i got to the store, i waited for my interviewer and then she finally called me in and we started the interview and then she only asked me like 4 questions only. She sounded like shes not interested with me and she's in a hurry. She didnt even ask me to fill something and something unlike the first interview i had from a different city. The lady that interviewed seems she's in a bad mood

    Store Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Placerville, CA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (Placerville, CA).

    Interview

    First time I applied, it was online and I never heard a word, however when I applied with the paper applications at the front door and turned it in to someone up front, I received a call after a few days for an interview. I was asked basic questions about any experience I have, how I would handle certain situations and where I think I would fit best in the store and be the most productive. From there, I was given a second interview with the assistant manager and she asked similar questions which seemed a bit redundant but she offered me a position on the spot and orientation was three weeks later, I started the next day after orientation.
