Merchandise Internship Interview

Merchandise Internship
Framingham, MA

I applied through college or university and 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.
