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

Distribution Center Supervisor Interview

Distribution Center Supervisor
Bloomfield, CT

I applied in-person and 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.

Interview Question – How does your military experience prepare you for working with us?   Answer Question

Corporate Merchandise Training Program Interview

Corporate Merchandise Training Program
Framingham, MA

I applied through college or university and 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.

Interview Questions

  • Tell me a time when you had to analyze data or information.   Answer Question
  • What has been your approach to your job search? What other companies have you applied to or are looking at?   Answer Question

Marketing Manager Interview

Marketing Manager
Framingham, MA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at TJX Companies in November 2010.

Interview Details – The interview process was very informative and gave me a great insight as to what it is like to work there. I appreciated the candor the marketing team gave me. Overall the process was very positive as it helped me make the decision not to pursue the position. I met with three members of the team and overall I think the interview took about 2 hours.

Interview Question – We will ask you stay as long as it take to get the job done. Are you able to do that give your family life?   Answer Question
