    Allocation Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at TJX Companies.

    Interview Details

    First, you had to take an online HireVue interview. Very awkward. There are 9 questions and you have 30 seconds to decide on an answer. When the 30 seconds are up, it starts recording you. Answers were focused on the position more than general interview questions.
    After that, I had Assessment Day. This was a LONG day. You shadow an analyst, have lunch, and then you have a data analysis problem. You have 30 min to work on it alone. After that, you and your group discuss and come to an agreement, while recruiters watch and take notes.
    After that, you have 3 interviews, back to back.

    Merchandising Development Program Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at TJX Companies.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Merchandising Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at TJX Companies.

    Interview Details

    Applied for the internship in Februrary - they do most of their intern hiring in September so the Spring semester is more competitive to fill fewer spots - and got notified to do a webcam recorded interview about a week later. Then I made it to the 2nd round which was an on-campus group interview with an individual and group case study, which was really awkward and they made the most cuts in that round. Then I made it to the final round which was at the headquarters, where we had 3 rounds of interviews with recruiters. They asked mostly behavioral and situations questions, but also asked a lot of questions about the company itself, so make sure to know about the business model, competitors, and career path! Also be prepared with lots of questions because you can't really ask the same questions to the three different recruiters. I was notified with an offer in mid-April.

    Interview Questions
    • Explain our business model and how it gives us a competitive edge against other retailers   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details

    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.
