    Allocation Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Framingham, MA
    No Offer
    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.

    Negative Experience
    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.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed 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.

    TJX Store Leadership Program- Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed 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.
