    Allocation Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at TJX Companies in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    They flew me up to Boston for the interview, put me up in a hotel and provided all transportation. The interview was broken up into two sections, before lunch we were given a tour of the campus and then we had a lunch and went into the interview process. I had 10 different separate interviews with different people. It was difficult at first but after the first two I got the hang of it and I though I did really well on the remaining interviews.

    Corporate Merchandise Training Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter - 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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bloomfield, CT
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at TJX Companies in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was a open house/job fair onsite. I was impressed with the facility. very nice and organized. Employees are very knowledgeable and very friendly. After a quick 5 to 10 minute tour i was brought to a conference room and waited. I then talked to the Supervisor or HR, then a AOM, and then the Manager of HR. After that it was lunch and they released me due to no one being around. All the people i meet were friendly and very helpful. Nothing unexpected was asked. Mostly asked about my Supervision experience and if i had dealt with Unions.

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at TJX Companies.

    Interview Details

    A couple of phone interviews. The onsite interview lasted over 5 hours and 30 minutes! The most senior guy there is a complete jerk! The DC was dirty and so was all of the interviewers' offices.

    Corporate Merchandise Training Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Framingham, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at TJX Companies in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    They flew me out to Framingham and the next morning I had eight 20 minute interviews back to back. all before lunch. I think the number of interviewers just depends on how many HR people they have there that day. Everyone was very nice and friendly, very easy to talk to and funny. What was confusing was a lot of them asked the same general interview questions, so I didn't know whether to respond with the same answer every single time or give each person a different answer. For example, an interview question was "Tell me a time when you had to analyze data or something." Multiple interviewers asked me this, and I wasn't sure to tell the same situation when I analyzed something to every person to show that it was a true story, or to tell each person a different time when I analyzed something to show that I've had multiple experiences analyzing information.
