    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at TJX Companies.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very laid back and felt very comfortable. I was nervous going in but Allie was very easy to talk too. She asked mostly about my resume and what my strengths were. We talked about how important time management and organizational skills were for this position. She explained a lot of what I would be doing in this role and then allowed me to say how the skills I have would help me do the job.

    2015 Merchandising & Buying European Graduate Programmer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at TJX Companies.

    Interview Details

    the initial application process for the TJX Merchandising and Buying Graduate Programme was rather straight forward, having to upload a CV, give additional information about education and employment and answer a few questions about why you were interested in the scheme. After about 2 weeks I received an email inviting me to undertake some online tests and a video interview. The tests were hosted buy Talent Q and I found the numerical tests more difficult than others I had carried out for other companies due to the strict time limit of between 60 and 90 seconds per question. The logical and Verbal tests however, were more comfortably completed. The video interview was hosted by Hireview, the format consisted of 10 questions which you were given 30 seconds to prepare an answer for and then 3 minutes in which to present the answer. You did not have to use the full 3 minutes however and could move on to the next question as soon as you were ready. There is no option to re-record your answers. The questions were not particularly unexpected. They included references to the off-price retail model and how that would affect both the buying strategy and the merchandising strategy (in separate questions) and also questions about personal experience which would make you relevant for the position.

    Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at TJX Companies.

    Interview Details

    I submitted an application form in person and was given an interview the same day. The interview itself was simplistic and was conducted in the gloomy, messy office of the hiring managers. I was asked mainly questions to verify my work experience and to confirm my availability and my understanding of the slightly-above minimum hourly wage offered.

    Interview Questions
    • This is an 'unexpected' answer to a question that I asked during the interview. When I asked the hiring manager whether management would provide feedback about my work performance, she scoffed and said, "You sure will," implying that the store manager (who was sitting next to her at the time) was going to give a lot of feedback whether I liked it or not. That, in fact, turned out to be true, but much worse than I could have imagined.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation phase: Do you accept that TJ Maxx will pay you a minimal, non-living wage? Yes? Okay then, you're hired.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was 3 pronged: computer assessments, group assessment and home office interviews. I would say the most challenging portion was the home office interviews, simply for the fact that it is speed dating style. You may interview with 3-5 people, which can be very tiring if you do t have your wheaties prior to.
