    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at TJX Companies (Framingham, MA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Similar to other descriptions on Glassdoor. Interviewed online through automated process, then was flown out to headquarters. Interviewed with 6 other people, 3 of which were already full time employees of TJX. During the allocation exercise I was unclear exactly how to proceed, but the candidates who already worked there knew exactly what to do. Did not get the position, I assumed they hired from within.

    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

    Corporate Administrative Role Interview

    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    They did say the various systems and processes at TJX are very old, outdated, and many things are manual.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

    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.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at TJX Companies (Westborough, MA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Phone screen with recruiter followed by in person with hiring manager and then 1 up manager. Interview with hiring manager was awkward/uncomfortable, everyone else was easy enough to talk to. Recruiter did not provide status updates on role or respond to emails which made it difficult to coordinate this opportunity with potential jobs at companies with more responsive teams.
