    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at TJ Maxx.

    Interview

    There was no interview process. The internship was a part of an ROP/CTE class. Now I will describe the internship to fufill the 50 word minimum.
    Was required to fufill 36 hours.
    Very flexible work hours.
    Sadly no discount.
    Most managers were very nice and clear with directions.
    A 5 hour workshift means only a 15 minute lunch break.
    There was a lounge for employees.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (Bridgeville, PA) in November 2012.

    Interview

    I was able to get an interview as soon as I went into turn in my application (that I printed online and filled out before.) It was a short typical interview asking why I wanted to work there, previous job experience, availability, etc. Then I was told that they would schedule me for orientation after they checked with my references. Orientation consisted of normal rules discussions, paperwork, tour and locker assignment. The first week, they started me out in the backroom processing shipment to get a feel for everything and then I moved to markdowns. During weeks that there were no markdowns, I would be scheduled to process shipment. Overall, it's relatively easy work and the people I worked with were nice.
