    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.

    An application is filled and if they are in need of people they will call for an interview. For the interview process they ask of past experience and ask to answer situation based questions. Then will be asked to fill out more paperwork followed by a lecture on store policies and rules. Then watch videos of how to work certain departments as well s get a tour of the store.

    You get hired, there really is no negotiation phase. Starting pay is minimum wage and that is it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at TJ Maxx (Cartersville, GA) in April 2019.

    Interview

    Applied online. They called me to schedule an in person interview a few days later. Typical questions. Although I marked on my application I was applying seasonally, she ended the interview earlier when I told her I would only work with her seasonally and they were looking for someone full time. I wish they had not called me for an interview and looked at my application more throughly.
