    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at TJX Companies in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    Very confusing, but applied online through college. Did a HireVue interview, then group discussions, and waiting on interviews at corporate offices. I did like the online webcam interview, however I thought it was hard to focus on the question because I could see myself on the camera.

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

    Interview Details

    Very easy. 4 stages. The first was you submit your cover letter and resume. Then you do a video interview. You then get invited for a group interview where you mimic what a planner may do. If you do well in the group interview, you get invited to interview at HQ with multiple recruiters.

    Merchandising Training Program Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Smithfield, RI
    Anonymous Employee in Smithfield, RI
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at TJX Companies in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Process was pretty drawn out. First was an online virtual interview which was basically like video taping yourself answering questions. Next interview was on campus, which was a group interview where we we asked to complete an activity in a buyer situation. The process was interesting but I think that would've been better later in the interview process. They never contacted me after that letting me know I didn't move on in the interview process.

    Corporate Merchandising Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at TJX Companies in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Applied to online position. Contacted a day later to do Hirevue interview. Contacted a day after Hirevue interview to come in for an in person interview at their Framingham campus. Everyting was quick. They house all applicants at the same hotel . We all arrived to the hotel in the wee hours of the morning then expected to come in the same day at 8am for Assessment Day.

     When you come in you are given an introduction about the company, you then are split into a group of 4 for 30 mins and ask to complete a data analysis on allocating lightweight jackets. Then 2 HR recruiters come in and listen to you come to a consensus on how many units to allocate to the stores. After that you have 3 interviews. Most interviewers ask you questions and seem to carr about your response. One HR recruiter was very rude. You are then given a tour after the and lunch.

    When I was contacted I was told I'd be given a call that next day if I received the position. I have not received a call. However, others have received emails requesting references. The trip was a waste of my time considering the HR team reviewed my resume before inviting me out and knew I was above this position. But, I decided to go because they are in such a hurry to fill the class. Just wished the HR lady had not lied to me about my changes of getting into the program.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at TJX Companies.

    Interview Details

    I attended the Univeristy career fair and discussed the position with a manager that attended. he took my resume and then I recived an email asking me to sign up and complete a video recording of a set of questions asked of me on the computer. It was a little akward interviewing to the camera, and not having any personal interactions with anybody.

    Merchandising Development Program Interview

    Interview Details

    Interview was one round of a one-way video interview, fair and not too difficult. Second round interview they fly you to home office in Framingham, MA and had a full day of tour and activities along with 3 interviews. Not the most organized process, but overall a good day. Interview questions were expected, although some interviewers were not effective in the way the questions were asked.

    Senior Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Marlborough, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Marlborough, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at TJX Companies in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Spoke with the recruiter on phone. Followed up with an on-site interview. The recruiter explained benefits and total rewards which were pretty decent. She wanted to know what I currently had for benefits , PTO time, and current salary. I then met with the hiring manager who was hard to understand and wasn't friendly. She just drilled questions at me. It wasn't very conversational. I met with other Business Analysts who were great and gave me details of what really goes on with their jobs and how they work on projects and with the team. I was still interested in the job despite the hiring manager but knowing we didn't hit it off, I didn't think I got the job. I emailed the recruiter and she got back to me in a day and told me it went to another person (I found out later she lied and they just didn't think I was a good fit)
