I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at TJX Companies.

Interview Details – Did an online application, some maths and english tests online, followed by a video interview. I was then invited to an assessment centre which was split into two visits to head office in Watford. The first visit involved an individual and group assessment, and the second was an individual interview and a presentation.

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

Corporate Merchandise Training Program Interview

Corporate Merchandise Training Program

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

Merchandise Assistant Interview

Merchandise Assistant

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at TJX Companies in January 2010.

Interview Details – I was contacted a month after I applied and given a brief phone interview. Then, a 1:1 interview was scheduled for that week. The interview seemed to go very well, I felt almost overqualified for the position, wrote thank you emails and handwritten notes, followed-up well, etc....did not hear from interviewer that they had gone with another candidate until over a month later. It seems like a great company to work for, but if you want to eventually go into Buying, you have to be willing to relocate to their corporate offices in MA since they have a special training program there.
