    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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    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.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at TJX Companies in October 2017.

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter over 3 months ago. 3 interviews took place over a 2 month period. All were conducted over the phone with a 4th interview taking place with the store manager at the store. All of these interviews were scheduled through a recruiter on the east coast. Online application was filled out, reference checks verified by a 3rd party company and a background check was executed all prior to an offer which I thought was really odd. I was contacted by the recruiter just over 2 months into the process about the possibility of working in another location that may be able to provide the salary I was looking for as it was higher volume. The recruiter stated that she would contact me no later than the following week. I have never heard back from her again. I have reached out several times via phone & email to no avail. I have also reached out directly to the DM that oversees the district and conducted my 3rd interview and also, no response.

    I find this behavior very unprofessional and a huge disservice to your company. I was recruited by TJX Companies and was sold on your brand and values throughout this lengthy process only to be completely disappointed by the lack of integrity and professionalism. Why waste a candidates time? I find it hard to believe that it’s that difficult to pick up the phone or send an email to a candidate that has invested over 3 months of their valuable time and was led to believe there was an offer pending. If this is any indication of employment with TJX Companies I am relieved to have found out at this juncture!

    Recruiting Interview

    Negative Experience
    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.
