    Merchandise Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Framingham, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TJX Companies (Framingham, MA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, was emailed an invitation to take a Hire Vue interview which is a one way recorded interview consisting of 7 questions. If you've never interviewed this way, I recommend downloading the app, and practicing before even applying because it's really awkward, and I think it's a terrible way to assess one's capabilities. But this is how they do it, so. . . practice. There is unlimited time between questions, but only 30 seconds to read a multiple part question and 3 minutes to answer it. It took about a week for them to send an email saying I didn't make it to the next round, and I commend them for at least doing that so I wasn't sitting around waiting to hear back.

    Allocation Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Framingham, MA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at TJX Companies (Framingham, MA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online to the MDP and several days was asked to complete an online video interview. A month later, I was asked to fly up to the corporate office for a 5 1/2 hour "assessment day" which consisted of a presentation, group activity for allocating men's polo shirts, three back to back interviews, a job shadow, lunch, and a slideshow of the buildings. The process was labor intensive and time consuming, but I did not feel that they were serious about hiring me despite my excellent education and qualifications. The recruiters on assessment day asked me the exact same questions over and over again, many of which were too situation specific or irrelevant to an entry level position. It was very difficult not to be irritated and they would not hint at salary.

    AC/MC Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Evansville, IN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at TJX Companies (Evansville, IN) in May 2014.

    Interview

    My first interview was over the phone...about 30 minutes or so. The next step was to walk and talk the DC with and HR generalist for an overview of the business. The final interview consisted of a half day session with 3 different members of senior management.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing specific comes to mind, just be ready for situational type questions. A lot of 'what did you do when...' or 'what would you do if' type of scenarios. Also be ready to call out specific scenarios in your previous work experience that relate to what they are asking. I think they use a lot of canned questions, so it can be very nerve wracking. It was hard to pull out a situational example when you're on the spot like that.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    My offer was for a higher salary than I requested. Benefits such as vacation and insurance were acceptable, so I didn't negotiate anything. I was pleasantly surprised to receive such a generous offer.

    It was pretty much a non-negotiation since it was a promotion but there is always room to move around when coming on board from the outside.
