    Senior Business Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at TJX Companies (Marlborough, MA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    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)

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at TJX Companies (Framingham, MA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Originally was reached out to by a recruiter - had phone screening with both an outsourced recruiter and then an HR executive at TJX. My in-person interviews were with numerous members of the team, plus the HR exec. I had to keep on them on where they stood with the process in the following weeks but otherwise they were responsive.

    Interview Questions

    • Many technical questions were asked of me, due to the role. Interesting that they want to know specifics but then when I asked the same questions back to them, they keep all information and vendors close to the chest.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at TJX Companies.

    Interview

    I applied online and the first step is to fill out a personality survey and a kind of math quiz. After that I was notified by a recruiter that I was being moved to the next step which was a one-way interview through Hireview. This consisted of 6 questions that you had 3 minutes each to answer. A few weeks after that I was contacted and told that I was through to the final phase which was an assessment day located at the headquarters. This consisted of a short presentation then a job shadow. After lunch we did an allocation exercise, which you had to complete alone and then come to a group decision. After that we had 3 interviews with recruiters.

    Interview Questions

    • Not super difficult questions, mostly behavioral, ex. tell me about a time you were creative. The hardest part was doing the interviews at the end of the day, it was definitely an exhausting day!   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at TJX Companies (Framingham, MA).

    Interview

    You will first start with a video interview if your application is received well. That is pre-recorded and will be sent in. Then they will invite you to participate in a Assessment Day. They will cover travel and room and board. Once there, they will introduce you to the company, do a mock data testing where you allocate jackets to different stores, you will share and develop a strategy with a small group of other interviewees, interview with three different people, then tour the building, have lunch, and shadow an analyst. Overall, it is low stress and the people there are very nice.

    Senior Financial Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at TJX Companies (Framingham, MA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I applied via LinkedIn for an IR role but they were close to extending an offer to a candidate already in process. However, several days later recruiting emailed me to set up a phone call to talk about a couple of other finance roles as they liked my academic and professional background. I was really impressed with the TJX recruiter as she was very detailed in explaining the culture of TJX ("we're nerds about work and think about it over the weekend") and drilling down into my experience. She said that I'd likely be a good fit at the end of the call and 1.5 wks later they emailed me to schedule an on-site visit.

    The visit consisted of four 30-minute 1-on-1 interviews, mostly about my previous experience. I learned that TJX fosters an internal networking culture so coffee chats and lunches are highly encouraged. Due to a series of flight delays and cancellations, I ended up staying the night at a hotel by Logan and their travel agent was very helpful in arranging my unplanned accommodations. I received an expense reimbursement for all of my T&E costs within 4 weeks. I have recently traveled for other interviews and some companies have taken longer to mail a check or provided only partial reimbursement.
