    Allocation Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Framingham, MA

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at TJX Companies (Framingham, MA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online to the MDP and several days was asked to complete an online video interview. A month later, I was asked to fly up to the corporate office for a 5 1/2 hour "assessment day" which consisted of a presentation, group activity for allocating men's polo shirts, three back to back interviews, a job shadow, lunch, and a slideshow of the buildings. The process was labor intensive and time consuming, but I did not feel that they were serious about hiring me despite my excellent education and qualifications. The recruiters on assessment day asked me the exact same questions over and over again, many of which were too situation specific or irrelevant to an entry level position. It was very difficult not to be irritated and they would not hint at salary.

    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. I 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.
