    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at TJX Companies.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted (by phone) about 2 weeks later by a recruiter. The conversation was good and he told me he wanted to set me up with a phone call with the hiring manager. He specifically said, "it sounds like you'd be a great fit and I'd like for you to have a call with the hiring manager.

    At my company, I am a hiring manager. It's fine to tell people what the next step in the process would be, but I don't think you should tell them you're going to have them move to the next step if you have no intention of doing so.

    2.5 weeks went by with no word from the recruiter. I left a VM, no feedback. 3 weeks after that I got a system generated email saying they went with another candidate.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at TJX Companies (Franklin, TN).

    Interview

    It was a piece of cake. I turned in my application and was called in for an interview a week later. It was the most unprofessional interview I've ever heard of and experienced. But I don't blame that on the company, it was just the manager's personality I learned after working with him.

    Interview Questions

    • Work experience? It was super unprofessional and he was easy to talk to. He just basically tried to get to know me and didn't care about the postion.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at TJX Companies (Mountain View, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I came in to drop the hiring application at about 10 a.m. I met the manager, who asked me a few questions about what I am currently doing. She asked if I had a few minutes to interview. I said sure. She sent me over to her assistant Manager in the employee section. The assistant manager was very pleasant. It was like chatting with a good client. My experience, honesty and personality came through. One hard working woman talking to another.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at TJX Companies (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was very simple and only lasted about 25 mins. The lady who interviewed me went over the company and the program. She asked if I was willing to relocate and I said yes which made her smile so I guess they like people that can relocate. After that, we both went over my resume. I don't have a lot on my resume so it didn't take long. She did ask about job gaps and why I left my previous job and about what my duties were in my current job. After that she just asked me 5 questions she said she was obliged to ask; they were all behavioral questions. She said my answers did not have to be only from my work experience but they could also be from volunteer experience, school clubs, etc. I didn't get the job and they are quick to tell you that you didn't make it. The process is more than just one interview so if you pass the interview be prepared for another.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at TJX Companies (Framingham, MA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The video screening interview was very awful but helpful in understanding what types of people they are looking for. Take your time in between questions and realize that they aren't looking for a specific answer. Just to see that you are a personable and outgoing person.

    Interview

    application was long. interviewers were all very nice and said they enjoy working together. I was the one asking most of the questions about the job to try to figure out if I would like it. I wanted to find out how much they were paying but instead they asked me how much I would want. That's always very uncomfortable.
