    Average Interview

    Interview

    Interview was very long and unstructured. Although they did ask basic questions, there were a few oddballs thrown in. It was not difficult. There were several interviews that took place. References were called and overall it just seemed to be a very basic process.

    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.

    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

    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.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at TJX Companies (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    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.
