    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Framingham, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Framingham, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at TJX Companies.

    Interview Details

    You will first start with a video interview if your application is received well. That is pre-recorded and will be sent in. Then they will invite you to participate in a Assessment Day. They will cover travel and room and board. Once there, they will introduce you to the company, do a mock data testing where you allocate jackets to different stores, you will share and develop a strategy with a small group of other interviewees, interview with three different people, then tour the building, have lunch, and shadow an analyst. Overall, it is low stress and the people there are very nice.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at TJX Companies.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and the first step is to fill out a personality survey and a kind of math quiz. After that I was notified by a recruiter that I was being moved to the next step which was a one-way interview through Hireview. This consisted of 6 questions that you had 3 minutes each to answer. A few weeks after that I was contacted and told that I was through to the final phase which was an assessment day located at the headquarters. This consisted of a short presentation then a job shadow. After lunch we did an allocation exercise, which you had to complete alone and then come to a group decision. After that we had 3 interviews with recruiters.

    Interview Questions
    • Not super difficult questions, mostly behavioral, ex. tell me about a time you were creative. The hardest part was doing the interviews at the end of the day, it was definitely an exhausting day!   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at TJX Companies in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Submitted resume through website, then had a video-recorded interview, then final round interview at TJX headquarters in Framingham, MA. The first round was easy and behavioral based, asking you about leadership, analytical skills scenario, etc. The final round was a full day beginning with job shadow of a current allocation analyst, then a case analysis question, then a group case analysis, then 3 rounds of one on one interviews. I was asked a lot of questions about my experience in merchandising, most specifically my internship -- they went very in-depth with my resume about that. It was overall very pleasant, and I got along really well with my interviewers. They really emphasize relationship building, communication, leadership, and analytical skills.

    Merchandise Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Framingham, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Framingham, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at TJX Companies in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through my university's career website. I then received an email for the first round of interviews, which happened to be a one-way interview on hirevue. This portion was a little awkward. It is basically a skype interview, but you're not having a conversation with another individual; you're just being recorded. These questions were very basic though. They just want to get a general sense of who you are. Then, 3 days later I received an email asking me to fly to their headquarters for a day consisting of a group allocation analysis, an office tour, and 3 interviews.

    Technical Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days - interviewed at TJX Companies.

    Interview Details

    Initially came in as a contractor to help strengthen communications. The interviewing manager made the process very comfortable and welcoming for me to illustrate my applicable experience, and any areas that I may have felt that some training would help in order to acclimate quickly with the open position. We had a long friendly discussion about the balance of work and family relevant to the working hours required to be covered in the target position. He offered of course the flexibility of start and end times maintaining awareness of the required coverage. After discussing the salary, and accepting the position, we walked out together and he mentioned that he enjoyed the interview so much that he was going to see if he could get me more money than earlier discussed. Three months later more money did show up in my paycheck!

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing was difficult at all. All the questions and expectations were right on point. Anything new that had not been anticipated was collectively resolved by the sharing and application of ideas.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation needed. The hiring manager was delighted with my interview and saw to it that I got a nominal raise three months after hiring.
