    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed 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.

    Merchandise Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Framingham, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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.
