I am going to have a phone interview with Tk Maxx for their trainee allocation analyst role.
What questions should I expect? Any other suggestions would be highly appreciated.

Hey I sent you an email as well...can you let me know what kind of question they asked you? and i hope that the interview went well!!
how did your phone interview go? What sort of questions did they ask you??
Hi I had a telephone interview with TK maxx about 3 weeks ago. The lady said I would hear back after a week, however I have had no response...
Just wondering if anyone has had an interview and how long they took to respond.
Thanks in advance
BTW it was a phone interview for a trainee allocation analyst
hi, can any of you detail the types of questions you were asked at the telephone interview please? would really appreciate that!
Hi. Have you heard back yet? I had a telephone interview mid November last year and still haven't heard back. I presume I wasn't successful but there's noone to contact and ask : s
That's strange, I had my telephone interview (for allocation analyst role) early jan and she actually told me on the phone on the same call that I had passed and I would receive online tests to complete. I received the online tests the same day and now have been invited to an assessment centre in Feb. I would contact them quick to see if you can get a place in the assessment centre - the office number is 01923 473000 from the emails I have received from them...
Hope that helps and good luck. klt
O Right cheers, yeah I might do. Its not the first job I want but I thought it was odd. I'm sure she said on the phone I would hear in 2-4 weeks and I didn't. Thanks I'll give them a call.
hey mini egg was the online tests hard? what can i expect?
Not done online tests for TK Maxx just a phone interview. Iv done them for a few other places. Verbal Reasoning is fine but the maths is pretty hard cos the time limits so short. Theres loads of practise websites though so I'd try that first
oh rite kool yeh just havin a look online now, really dont no what to expect :( u still going to the tk maxx assesment centre in feb? :)
I never heard back after my phone interview.So presume I didnt get through.I emailed someone yesterday about it. Don't know what else to do really. I thought theyd have emailed me to say I was unsucessful. You know anyone I can email?
thats strange they told me straight after on the phone, i just asked them and they told me... id say call up or just keep pestering them by email.
how was the online tests for tk maxx? what sort of test was it?
The online tests were provided by SHL and were pretty standard as far as online tests go. I have recently done the online tests for some of the big 4 accountancy firms and compared to them the tkmaxx tests were slightly easier. You are required to do one numerical and I think the other one was verbal. I'm not sure what the pass rate was on these but it didn't seem too difficult, just practice lots before you do the real one.
i've had the phone interview if anyone needs help. it was for the MBGP.
I´m having a phone interview next week for the allocation analyst role, I would be very grateful if you could provide me with any help. Thank you!
Its pretty simple, 40mins or so.
They ask a lot about uni, what you liked and disliked. Also about the store you visited, make sure you go to one! Like what you saw and what brands. What you know about the industry and the role.
The lady I had was really nice and friendly.
She told me straight after that I got the interview.
Thanks a million!! Regards, x
I was wondering if anyone had any information on the maths test at the assessment centre day with TK Maxx? and how the personal interviews are?
I'm starting to get a bit nervous!!
Thank you so much x
Iv got an assessment centre on 7th April...does anyone else?
Has anyone been for one yet and can give some advice on things they ask, even just the timetable for the day?
I had an assessment centre on 16th Feb, I was wondering have you heard anything yet? because I haven't did they say when they we're going to let you know
im invited for the video interview for tkmaxx merc and buying graduate programme and would be excellent to get to know what kind of questions do they ask you.would really appreciate it. Thanks :)
I'm invited for the video interview too!! I still have like 5 days to complete it. Never had sth similar before. I'm applying for finance grad programme, though think the questions they would ask would be the same as on your programme. Have u already completed the interview? What questions did they ask?
I'm also invited to attend the online interview for the Finance Scheme until 28th of February. How was your interview? Can you please share your experience about the questions they ask, the duration etc?
Hope you are successful :)

Please can anyone share there experience of there video interview. I have on e soon and i am so nervous. any info will definitely go a long way.
No one ever seems to want to give feedback.....wonder why?
I guess they've got jobs now n cant be bothered.
Im doing my video Interview tonight! for allocation analyst role so nervous. does anyone have any feedback x
hi cc1991 how was it ? What questions did they ask you?
hi how was it..what did they ask you..was it mainly like a normal interview?
Hello, done the Interview last night. Did not go well at all. I am good at speaking to people face to face but the concept of talking to a computer screen made my mind go blank so much so I missed very importnat things out, said eh alot and clisked on the next question without answering properly. I didn't write done the questions but there were ten. Some were basic interview questions one was about a weakness, I was asked about university, My store visit-make sure you visit a store, a question about the Off-price model too, last question was open and asked if you would like to add anything. I had revised for all the questions that came up so it was like a basic interview, nerves just got in the way for me :( x
Had my video interview too and ve to say same. It felt more like a race against d clock...loads of nerves...ve u gotten any feedback or confirmation to say you took d interview? I've not heard anything since then. Fingers crossed though.
Yes I have, I didn't pass it. the questions were basic but nerves, stumbling on words, lots of em ehm. The interview just felt awkward.
I haven't had any word back, but my guess is that I have failed. Very disheartening ! x
I done the video interview last night, and awkward, nerve-racking, uncomfortable and just odd, are a few words that come to mind. My nerves definitely got the best of me unfortunately, with awkward silences and uhms and ahhs as well.
The questions: whats your reasoning for going to uni and your degree choice, what are your strengths, what are your weaknesses, how does the off-price model work compared to normal retailers, how would you react in a group discussion, your experience of visiting two stores and product layout and an open question at the end.
Definitely practise beforehand, even then my nerves still got me unfortunately
My questions were slightly different. There were 10 in all:
Your biggest mistake in studies or work and how you handled it
How you chose your university and degree
Why you chose the TJX merch and buying scheme
Talk about a store and why there are different products in different locations
What part do you play in a team and what skills do you bring
Explain off-price buying and how it differs to normal buying
Explain off-price merchandising and how it differs to normal merchandising
Have you got anything else to add
Hope this helps for future interviewees!
I got an e-mail saying that I had been unsucessful, however today I recieved another e-mail saying I had been shortlisted and would be contacted in February in regards to whether I have to attend an assesment centre. x
