CMTP Interview

CMTP

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

Interview Details – I applied through my school's career center but had to apply through their corporate website too. I met the recruiters at a career fair and after submitting my materials online and passing the retail/personality test, I got an email for an online interview. They use this system where you record yourself saying the interview answers, and it's timed. It's a little stressful since it's timed but not that bad at all. After that I got an email invitation to the on-campus interview. It was a group of about 8 students, and the whole recruiting team came. They were all really nice and seemed like a fun group that I would have loved working with. They gave a short presentation about TJX and the program then gave us the famous allocation exercise to do. We did it by ourselves when they left, then they came back after 20 minutes and we had to discuss how we would allocate the merchandise with them in the room. I unfortunately read the sales data a bit backwards, getting my gains and losses confused, though I did understand the concept, especially as someone who had never had retail experience or merchandising experience. They said that we would hear back by the end of the week but I never did, though I contacted them twice a week later then 2 weeks later to inquire about my status. A little sad that I didn't get it, especially since they were making us do stuff that most of us had never done and that we would have been trained on in the program anyway--seems kind of backwards. Also the team is great and I would've loved working with them. Kind of rude that they couldn't email candidates even if they weren't chosen, though.
