    The interview process was a group interview and a tour of the store combined. We even had to "be employees" for about 5-10 minutes and then our work was checked over. Alot of visual aids were also included. They basically asked a few questions in each department about what we should do or how we would do certain things as an employee.

    I met with the assistant manager for a brief interview, and had a second interview with the store manager. Overall, it was a pleasant interview. They were very specific about what was required of me, upfront, and honest.

    I asked questions about what the job was like and how it was different from other retail Jobs in the area. I also asked both managers how they like working there and what is the best part about working at TJ Maxx. It was smooth conversation and felt easy and comfortable.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (Sumter, SC) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The process was average but short nonetheless and the interview was great. It was two managers and basically they liked my positive attitude, my very flexible availiability and what i've learned to do. Those are attributes you kind of want to go in with and also have knowledge of situations that might happen in the future. I got a call on Friday saying that I got the job after my interview on Tuesday. So it was a great positive experience and all of the staff are nice and welcoming.

    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.

    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.
