    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I applied on-campus and was offered an initial interview in a group setting. We had to discuss and present a case study in front of the recruiters. I was selected for the 2nd interview and was flown out to their headquarters. There were 3 separate interviews in one day, had lunch and a tour of the building. All of the candidates were separated into groups and we shadowed some of the employees for a bit. Overall, it seems like a nice company to work for and the recruiters are very friendly and chatty.

    Loss Prevention Detective Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at TJX Companies.

    Interview Details

    I had interviewed with TJX before, but wasn't hired because they wanted to talk to my supervisor at my job at the time, but I didn't want them to know I was looking to leave without an offer on the table. The interviews were both very pleasant and relaxed. Mostly conversational about your knowledge of loss prevention and sharing old stories! The only odd part was the first manager wanting to talk to my supervisor when I had provided them our HR number to confirm employment. The second manager simply let Lexis Nexis handle all of my background. I applied online and received a call for an interview in about two weeks. At the interview, they had me complete some further paperwork for my background check. My background check was said to take between one and three weeks, but mine took about 10 days. Another guy hired with me at the same time took three weeks though. Overall it appears their interviews are more about what you know instead of how you interview which really helps those who know LP well.
