    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at TJX Companies.

    Interview

    I connected with a recruiter at a information session for a club on campus. Applied online and did a video interview. After that there was a group interview. We were given a merchandising problem to make recommendations for and after 15 minutes, discussed the problem together while interviewers made notes. I was called back for another interview on campus. It was 3, 15 minute interviews with 3 different recruiters. They all asked different questions. Didn't get an offer but did enjoy the process.

    Store Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at TJX Companies (New York, NY).

    Interview

    First was a phone interview with a recruiter. She was 5 minutes late. Told me about the company and set up a second phone interview with another recruiter. Didn't get confirmation until that day of the phone interview. She called 15 minutes late. I found that to be very inconsiderate and unprofessional. At the end she said she was going to set up an in person interview with the District Manager. Never heard back. Very disappointing. At least an email should have been sent if they were not interested.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at TJX Companies.

    Interview

    Initial interaction with Recruiter was positive with regular follow up, both on phone and face to face. Formal interview involved meeting with 3 Sr. Level managers - all who asked very scripted, outdated interview questions. Disappointing to not hear anything back post-interview (positive or negative) from any parties involved.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at TJX Companies (Georgetown, TX) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I had stopped in to pick up an application and discovered a an on-site hireing event was about to begin. The interview, after filling out an application, consisted of a series of standard questions. I felt the interview was quite easy and they had few criteria in who would be accepted as long as you are available and committed to working. I was interested in a merchandise coordinator position but was only hired on as a seasonal temp.
