    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Ross Stores (Orlando, FL).

    Interview

    I applied online and later received an email to attend a hiring event. I had to wait a while before receiving the email, maybe because I applied online. The day of the interview, there was a wait list, and they would call people to a one-on-one interview. It was very easy, straight forward questions. The person interviewing was very friendly and was filling out a worksheet during the interview. I didn't get the job because the interview was actually for an opening store so they needed flexible schedules.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Ross Stores (Rome, GA).

    Interview

    Applied on-line, received a call a month later saying they wanted me to come in for a interview. Told me the day and time. Interview was easy, the person interviewing didn't know a head of time what I had applied for and had to ask me. Also some of the questions she asked was on the printed paper in front of her, standard questions. I was never told what the pay was, just what the hours were. She did tell me what was involved with the position and that they had a time frame that it all had to be done by. Interview lasted about 20 minutes. At the end of the Interview, I was told that they had a couple of more people to interview that day and I would hear something by the following Monday. It has been about 3 weeks and I have not received any call from them about the job as they said I would.

    Interview Questions

    • Have you ever had a customer come to you very upset, if so what would you do?
      If asked, would you finish up someone else's work that they didn't finish?

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Ross Stores (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Within 20 minutes of setting up the interview, I received an email stating the position I applied for was closed. I contacted recruitment and was told it was an error. I didn't want to waste my time with an interview which was not going to lead anywhere. Upon arriving at their office 15 mins early, I was given an application which all information was mandatory even with a resume. Off the bat you are to provide three references.

    I was escorted into a very small office (my knees kept hitting the desk in front of me and there was no room to move back) where two recruiters conducted the interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Ross Stores (Chula Vista, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Unprofessional.
    You have to wait at least an hour before you see the interviewer.
    It's not your professional interview.
    They put all interviewees in the same room and started to ask 3 questions:
    Why Ross?
    Tell me about yourself?
    Previous experience?

    Adding to this unprofessional interview process, this part time job is basically has no good side in any way, here are the features:
    1-start after 12:00 am
    2-not every night
    3-may 2-3 hours per night down to 0 (zero, you have read right) hour.
    4-the maximum hours you might get (if you get it) is 25 hours /week.
    5-no benefits of any kind.
    6-job includes in addition to stocking, you have to categorize the good before carry on to stock them

    I hope this helped

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ross Stores in December 2014.

    Interview

    Applied on line, received a call from a store manager to schedule a phone interview for the following week. The morning of the interview received a call from the store manager stating "We'll have to reschedule the interview, corporate people are in town and I won't even be in my store." A couple days later had brief phone interview, basic screening questions. A week later received a call from ANOTHER store manager to schedule a face to face interview. Went to the store manager's store, he asked basic scripted questions off a generic form, wrote down answers. He said they needed to hire a manager quickly and he would talk to his DM and they would notify me within a couple days. Received a generic rejection email the next day. Why is a large company letting their store managers hire for their same position? From what the store manager told me about his background in the interview it sounded like I had more experience than he did. Does Ross have an HR department, doesn't sound like it. Sounds like the patients are running the asylum at Ross.
