I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at TJX Companies.

Interview Details – Submitted through campus, then had a video interview where they asked several questions, then had an on campus interview which was a group interview. Overall okay interview process except not much one-on-one time before the final round. Friendly recruiters, pretty easy process

Next step they fly you to their corporate headquarters for final rounds

Corporate Merchandise Training Program Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and interviewed at TJX Companies.

Interview Details – I applied for the internship though campus recruitment. I went to an information session they held, and they liked me enough to set up a video interview for me (one way interview). After that I went in for a group interview where we were each given data to analyze, and we would discuss it with one of the senior representatives. After that they put us in a large group to have us discuss our findings together, mostly to test our team work capabilities.

Interview Question – Tell us about a time where you had an unpopular opinion and tried to push it through.   Answer Question

Corporate Merchandise Training Program Interview

Corporate Merchandise Training Program

I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at TJX Companies.

Interview Details – Met a recruiter on campus at an information session. Then continued to followup with the recruiter up until the on campus Career Fair where I talked to him again, along with a woman who had started in the Corporate Merchandise Training Program.

I was invited to do an online interview where I answered questions and was recorded. I followed up with the recruiter about how I hope it went well and then a day later, I was invited to interview on campus in a group interview.

Sat around a table with fellow peers and had to allocate jackets to different stores and answer some questions. After, we all had to talk as a group to allocate the jackets.

Interview Question – Nothing was very difficult-you have to be outspoken at the group interview, but not too outspoken.   Answer Question

The process took a day - interviewed at TJX Companies in March 2008.

Corporated Management In Training Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Framingham, MA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at TJX Companies in February 2012.

Interview Details – Frist I applied on online tjxcompanies.com/career to college program called CMTP(corporated Managment in Training Program). About a month later, I received an e-mail saying want to have phone interview with me. I contacted the hiring manager and discussed on the phone.

The questions were basically do you know about the program and why you want to start your career in tjxcompaines. Interview went well and at the end, he asked me about my visa status since i am an international student.

I said i can legally work in u.s. for a one year but need a sponsorship after that... and he said the tjx company does not do visa sponsorship for international stuent. Plus, there are looking for a candidate who can walk for 5 year long career path eventually become a buyer.

Therefore, I did not get accepted to the program. Too bad...
