    Interview Details

    I applied on-campus and was offered an initial interview in a group setting. We had to discuss and present a case study in front of the recruiters. I was selected for the 2nd interview and was flown out to their headquarters. There were 3 separate interviews in one day, had lunch and a tour of the building. All of the candidates were separated into groups and we shadowed some of the employees for a bit. Overall, it seems like a nice company to work for and the recruiters are very friendly and chatty.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at TJX Companies in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied in person at the TJ Maxx distribution center. They seem to be always hiring because of high turnover rate. They called me back for an interview a week later or so. The interview was a group interview with about 20-30 people all in a classroom like room. I believe its about 3 hours long divided into 3 parts, paperwork, facility tour, then a urine drug test. If you pass the drug test, then you come back a couple days later for orientation and to discuss what position you want. Its really a simple process, just listen and not much talking required. After orientation, you begin training. Also, you are PAID for orientation and if i'm not mistaking, the interview too!!!
