    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at TJX Companies.

    Interview

    Applied online, within a week was asked to do the online video interview. You have to read the question and you have about 30 seconds before it starts to record your response. If you haven't done one, it helped to practice responding to questions out loud since there's no dialogue. About a week later, I was invited to the assessment day at home office. It was about 6 hours and included an individual exercise, group discussion, 3 individual interviews with recruiters, lunch, your of home office and a job shadow. Everyone was very nice and welcoming. They all seemed to like working there.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at TJX Companies.

    Interview

    Received request for phone interview within days of applying via referral. Questions were geared toward clarifying and understanding my experience. As my lack of experience in one area did not qualify me for the specific position, the recruiter had the insight to request sharing my resume with another recruiter for a different position. I appreciated their knowledge of the org to be able to align their needs with my experience.
