    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 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at TJX Companies.

    Interview Details

    I applied via my university's careers database and was contacted for an on-campus group interview. The group interview consisted of about 8 people and the time was broken into 3 sections: 1) short TJX presentation about the company. job positions, and internship 2) individually analyzing data and making allocation recommendations 3) coming together as a group to discuss our decisions and coming to a group consensus. I was the only person applying to the internship in my group (everyone else was applying for a full time job), so this portion of our application process was the same.

    Internship applicants may be contacted for a final interview at TJX's home office in Framingham, MA.
