    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at TJX Companies.

    Interview

    There was no interview. I walked in, asked if they were hiring, and pretty much got the green light from jump street. Didn't even watch the crappy VHS workplace videos which was cool with me.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at TJX Companies (Framingham, MA) in December 2011.

    Interview

    Long and exhausting. It was an all day interview and I think I interviewed with about 10 different people. Some asked me the same questions. We also went on a tour of the building and got to shadow another analyst. It was a lot in one day. I was happy thought after when I got the offer. I'm not sure if they've chsnged the process since then. This was about 4 years ago or even more.

    Allocation Analyst Interview

    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.
