I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TJX Companies (Mississauga, ON) in July-2014.
First interview with a third party in the US. Behavioral questions. 2nd interview was with hr. similar to the first interview. however, the interviewer didn't seem interested from the start. it didn't seem like a two way communication since the interviewer was writing and with minimal eye contact. its hard to communicate with someone who seems so disconnected from the conversation. my telephone interviewer seemed more involved and the interview was more interactive. I did like the fact that the hr followed up for a feedback

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at TJX Companies in September-2013.
Made it through 2/4 interviews. After 2 weeks, I called to see what was going on. She said she had emailed me (she must have typed my email address incorrectly) and I didn't make it through. When I asked why, she said she had nothing written down...

I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at TJX Companies (Mississauga, ON) in October-2012.
I had applied for the position online at the end of August. I did not hear back until the beginning of September when I received a call from HR. From this point she asked some additional questions regarding my experience and background in the industry and said that she would like to move forward with a phone interview. The phone interview was set up maybe a week later and it lasted about an hour. The questions were behavioural and she asked me about my resume as expected. After waiting a few days, I was contacted and was told that they were going to move me onto the 1:1 interview in a couple of weeks. When she called she gave me feedback and some insight as to what types of questions they were going to ask. She sent me an email detailing everything and forwarded me forms to fill out. When I got to the Mississauga Office for the interview there was another candidate in the waiting room. When greeted by the HR representative, she told me that she was not going to meet with me but that I was going to sit down with another HR recruiter and a manager instead. After about an hour of q & a from both sides -being asked very similar questions as the phone interview, the recruiter advised that I should hear back from them by Friday of that week. Needless to say, I was reading other reviews here about the interview process and after not hearing back on Friday, I did not hold my breath. Despite doing the best I could and having the skills and experience required for the position I guess I was not a good fit after all. Confirmation of this came via telephone by the HR recruiter who conducted my first telephone interview. This time she was not able to give me any feedback from the 1:1 interview. She did say that I presented myself well, however they were not going to move me along through the interview process.

- No OfferNeutral ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at TJX Companies in January-2012.
Phone interview is the first step. They go through your resume and what you expect in a career i.e. what made you select this company, where do you see yourself in future etc. A lady did the interview and she was quite direct with the questions, wouldn't say helpful or even trying to make me feel better as the entire process felt a little robotic. Questions asked are things expected, they pretty much want you to go over what you did in your previous work and how it relates to the position you're applying to. They're also quite insistent on excel skills and you need to back it up with examples. I was told that the entire hiring process was in four steps: initial phone call, interview with the hr, interview with your future boss and the final interview.

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at TJX Companies (Mississauga, ON) in November-2010.
Process begins with screening phone interview to review resume. Next is a 1:1 interview with recruiter which reviews resume and a series of "Tell me about a time when you..." Next is an interview with HR senior and Operations Manager which is similar to previous interview with a greater focus on leadership and team skilss. Lastly is an interview with HR Manager and AVP, similar to previous two interviews with focus on 'fit' within the distribution facilities.
Not much as I was a recent graduate with little experience in the field.
