    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at TJX Companies.

    Interview Details

    I was initially contacted via phone by a talent acquisition manager to set up a time in the near future to discuss the opportunity. We originally talked on either a Thursday or Friday and the phone interview was scheduled for the following Monday. She was very accommodating and worked around my schedule since I am currently employed. The interview lasted about 45 minutes and was a typical interview except right off the bat she gave a detailed description of the company and exactly what the position was all about which I really liked. She said that the process would consist of about 4 interviews and if I didn't hear back in two weeks to follow-up with her. I emailed her in about 2 weeks and she called me less than an hour after I emailed her. All in all, I'd say this was one of the best interviews I've ever had.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at TJX Companies.

    Interview Details

    I met with 2 people, individually. The first person asked me the standard interview questions like "what is your weakest and strongest point." The 2nd person i met with was the director. She seemed really nice and very pleasant to speak with. I had a good feeling about the interview but I guess I was wrong. They did advise me that they had a high turnover rate. So I'm glad I didn't end up there.

    Buying Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at TJX Companies.

    Interview Details

    I participated through my school's on campus recruiting. First round was a remote video interview with pretty standard behavioral questions and a very simple math question. Then I was flown to the HQ in Massachusetts to have a final round, which included a case/data analysis test, group project involving the case, and three 30-min interviews. I also had a job shadow and tour of the building. The questions were not unexpected at all, and were largely behavioral. They really want to see that you are interested in the company for the long haul, so be prepared for rigorous questions about your applications to other companies, whether you would return for another internship/full time, why TJX, etc

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at TJX Companies.

    Interview Details

    Received request for phone interview within days of applying via referral. Questions were geared toward clarifying and understanding my experience. As my lack of experience in one area did not qualify me for the specific position, the recruiter had the insight to request sharing my resume with another recruiter for a different position. I appreciated their knowledge of the org to be able to align their needs with my experience.
