    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at TJX Companies (Framingham, MA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Started off with a phone interview, which then lead to an in person interview (2 supervisors and their manager). Was interviewed by the three of them at once -- which made it more difficult.

    Graduate Programmer Interview

    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at TJX Companies (Watford, East of England, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Applied online, following some online assessment tests one had to pursue a one-way video interview. Then got invited to the assessment centre. There we had one on one interviews, 2 group exercises and one data analysis exercise. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the fact that most assessors have been working there for 10+ years indicates that the working climate is very good. It was one of the most relaxed assessment centre days I have been to so far.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Framingham, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at TJX Companies (Framingham, MA).

    Interview

    Applied online and had a short initial call with the recruiter to discuss role and background, then was invited for on-campus interview. Interviewed with 4 different people on the team. The recruiter was extremely late every single time we were scheduled to speak. They were also terrible with communication and would never email me or even respond to my emails, unless I would send reminder emails. I don't even know how the recruiter can keep their job. And the campus looked awful and dated, and not like a place you would want to work at. Some of the people I interacted with during the interview day were sweet and kind, but others were very socially awkward and cold.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly behavioral questions and questions about current role and why the move   Answer Question

    Customer Service Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TJX Companies (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty straightforward. They ask you about your work experience, strengths/weaknesses, what you can bring to the company. The Manager was pleasant and made me comfortable. Took a few weeks to sort out but they do a very good job training you to do the work. They're really adamant on customer service and prioritize it over anything else.

    Interview Questions

    • Q: Describe a time where you were challenged and how did you overcome it?   Answer Question

    Corporate Administrative Role Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at TJX Companies in February 2017.

    Interview

    Had several meetings with HR people. Overall received very positive feedback but was passed on for the role. It did take them a while to provide feedback (several weeks) - I felt they could have provided it faster out of respect for the candidates.

    They did say the various systems and processes at TJX are very old, outdated, and many things are manual. So do not expect the job to be easy.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly questions about personality, style, etc. Since it was HR there was nothing specific to the job.   Answer Question

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at TJX Companies in January 2017.

    Interview

    After completing the application, got an email back from TJX saying I need to complete a HireVue video interview. It was mostly behavioral, gave me a minute to prepare for each question, and lasted about 45 minutes total. I heard back from them after another few weeks saying that they want to move me forward with the process, but that I need to wait a couple of months until they get settled to do the final interview. I heard back from my recruiter after a month saying a region opened up, and that if I am willing to relocate to that area, they would like to schedule me for the final interview with a district manager. The recruiter was very friendly, genuine, and made sure to keep me updated! but it was definitely a long process.. I finished my final interview with the district manager a few weeks ago, but still haven't heard back, even though they said that they would let me know if I made it or not within a week.
