I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at TJX Companies in February 2014.
Interview Details – I applied online through my university's career website. I then received an email for the first round of interviews, which happened to be a one-way interview on hirevue. This portion was a little awkward. It is basically a skype interview, but you're not having a conversation with another individual; you're just being recorded. These questions were very basic though. They just want to get a general sense of who you are. Then, 3 days later I received an email asking me to fly to their headquarters for a day consisting of a group allocation analysis, an office tour, and 3 interviews.

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at TJX Companies in March 2012.
Interview Details – Learned about the position through a campus job fair. Submitted my resume through my school career center. Was contacted a few days later via email for a on-campus interview/assessment exam.
The first interview/assessment exam was an individual/group activity which consisted of about five merchandise analysis questions. You were asked to answer individually and then asked to reveal your answers and deliberate with the group to present the interviewers with one answer all within ten minutes.
In my group I noticed that they were looking for someone who is assertive and will lead the deliberation and manage the time wisely.
I was then emailed two days later with an offer for an interview with other HR recruiters at the TJX Headquarters located in Framingham, MA expenses paid (hotel, car service, breakfast and lunch at the HQ)
The day of the one-on-one interview we met the rest of the candidates and later found out that we each would interview with 5 HR recruiters back to back. The interviews were approximately 20 minutes and consisted of mostly the same questions but each recruiter varied the order and some threw in new questions.
The questions were all scenario based. I had one recruiter actually time my answers due to the limited 20 minute interview. If i was too short on my answer, she would ask for more details and if my answer was lengthy, I was cut off. That was my first interview of the bunch and was the most intense. The rest were a bit more relaxed but the questions were basically the same and not rushed. The very last interview was the easiest as the recruiter was the one I had initially met at my college and basically consisted of why I would be able to relocate to MA.
All candidates were contacted 2 weeks after and were either offered or denied an offer.
