Merchandise Assistant Interview

Merchandise Assistant

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at TJX Companies.

Interview Details I applied for the position and got a call back for a phone interview 2 weeks later. Then it took about a month to get an in-person interview. Everyone I spoke with on the phone and through e-mail were friendly.

Interview Question – They asked a lot of behavioral questions for example, tell me about a time you didn't have all the facts and what did you do to complete the task and how did you go about it.   Answer Question

Merchandise Internship Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Framingham, MA (US)

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at TJX Companies in February 2014.

Interview Details I applied online through my university's career website. I then received an email for the first round of interviews, which happened to be a one-way interview on hirevue. This portion was a little awkward. It is basically a skype interview, but you're not having a conversation with another individual; you're just being recorded. These questions were very basic though. They just want to get a general sense of who you are. Then, 3 days later I received an email asking me to fly to their headquarters for a day consisting of a group allocation analysis, an office tour, and 3 interviews.
