The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at TJ Maxx in July 2012.

Interview Details – Had a phone interview were I was asked about my past experiences and duties.

Said the training program is 12 weeks and that you start at the lowest position possible in management and after 4 week intervals you get a review and then if your lucky you get the position you originally interviewed for.
