    Interview

    I applied online and got an email to set up a virtual interview that had to be done in the next 3 business days from when I got the email. the interview consisted of 9 questions. You had 30 sec to read the question and think of what you are going to say before it recorded you. It was very scary. I am still waiting to hear about the next step.

    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.

    Interview

    Applied online, within a week was asked to do the online video interview. You have to read the question and you have about 30 seconds before it starts to record your response. If you haven't done one, it helped to practice responding to questions out loud since there's no dialogue. About a week later, I was invited to the assessment day at home office. It was about 6 hours and included an individual exercise, group discussion, 3 individual interviews with recruiters, lunch, your of home office and a job shadow. Everyone was very nice and welcoming. They all seemed to like working there.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at TJX Companies (Boston, MA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    First met HR reps at a career fair and then info session on campus. The first round interview is an online one way interview where you basically just have to answer questions as they pop up on your screen while you are recorded. I disliked this part of the process. You only had two minutes to answer each question and the timer would count down on the screen. I also just thought the online video recording was just awkward because you couldn't have a fluid conversation like in an actual interview. The second round was a group case study on campus with other interviewees. You are basically just giving a study relevant to the job and have a half hour to do the assessment yourself and then a half hour to meet with the group and reach a unanimous solution while they evaluate your performance. The third round is a day spent at the headquarters that includes a job shadow and several rounds of HR interviews.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at TJX Companies (Framingham, MA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The video screening interview was very awful but helpful in understanding what types of people they are looking for. Take your time in between questions and realize that they aren't looking for a specific answer. Just to see that you are a personable and outgoing person.

    Interview

    Interview was one round of a one-way video interview, fair and not too difficult. Second round interview they fly you to home office in Framingham, MA and had a full day of tour and activities along with 3 interviews. Not the most organized process, but overall a good day. Interview questions were expected, although some interviewers were not effective in the way the questions were asked.
