Merchandise Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in Redlands, CA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (Redlands, CA) in March 2015.

Interview

It was a mass hire for a opening store. I was interviewed on the spot and nailed it! Of course I have over 3 years in retail experience so it was a little easier for me to answer their questions. I had a second interview with the store manager and they should be contacting me shortly!

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (Henderson, NV) in October 2013.

    Interview

    There were 2 interviews, one with Christopher and the other with Nicole. They both asked the same questions and I think that was to see if you were consistent. They asked about teamwork, treatment of others, and what is considered good customer service.

    I applied online. I interviewed at TJ Maxx in May 2015.

    I was asked to come interview but never actually got to when I showed up because they didn't want to hire me because I would be leaving for college in the fall. They don't hire temporary associates.

    Merchandise Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cupertino, CA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (Cupertino, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    3-4 days after I applied online, I was contacted by phone to set up an interview. The interview was relatively easy, a few questions about my resume and other basic questions. My interview was a bit longer than it should be because since I applied online, I had to fill out a physical application in-store because they do not receive online applications. After the interview, I was asked to attend orientation the next day. Overall, it was a very positive experience, the manager was very nice and friendly!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (Henderson, NV) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was about 3 weeks. After handing in my application, it took about a week for a first interview to be scheduled. It was 1:1 and very relaxed, and I got positive feedback. A second interview was scheduled a week later and had the same feel. Very basic questions. My hiring manager went on vacation after that though, so it took 2 months for me to get an orientation date and officially be hired.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (Newark, NJ) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Super easy! Got hired right on the spot. I had one interview and then asked my manager when I would be expecting a call back. She said, "you know what, come back on this date" and that was it. Very typical questions were asked. It was very laid back and not scary at all. I got hired with no experience when I was 17 and a junior in high school.
