    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    IT Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Ross Stores.

    Interview Details

    Very poor interview process, a 3-party interviewer reached out to me on Linkedin. Recruiter got my details, including my resume and salary expectations.
    I was setup for a first round interview with one of their IT Managers. The interviewer had very poor communication skills: he jumped straight into my background and kept asking, why do you want to come work for us, we have nothing going on. At no, point did he make an attempt to promote his company/work culture. The key focus of the interview was that they had nothing going on, all their IT systems are old, no budgets for big upgrades in the future, so, just a dull boring place to work in. The interviewer was almost begging me to not come work for them. The key takeaway was: why would you want to come work in a place as non-exciting as us...
    What was supposed to be a 'skills' interview also had a lot of personal questions interspersed in it, some of which also not appropriate ones to ask in an interview and would risk being classified as discriminatory.
    After the interview I politely sent a note to the recruiter that I wanted to drop out of the process as I did not seem like a fit for their culture and role.

    Waiting for your interview takes longer than the actual interview. they ask the usual question. be polite and charming and dont forget to smile. it shows that you are nice. stay full of energy because they look for employees that are since you are working in an fast paced environment being on your feet for several hours at a time.

    District Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Ross Stores.

    Interview Details

    This was one of the worst experiences I have ever encountered. No human interaction prior to group interview. Cattle call! Interviewers did not probe or ask behavioral questions. Had preconceived notion based on current and former employers.

    Interview Questions
    • No unexpected questions or degree of difficulty. They (interviewers) only seemed interested in their own accomplishments versus the applicants. Did not recognize transferable skills and very close minded. Would never recommend Ross Dress for Less to anyone.   Answer Question

    Talent Acquisition Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, CA

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Ross Stores in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    One phone interview and three two hour onsite interviews over a four week period. Was notified as a finalist after the second onsite interview. Background check was completed as well as reference checks. Then heard nothing for over a week. Asked for when a decision would be made and was told that the department was going through a reorg, but were still interested. Then there was another period of no communication for another week. Asked a second time for an update and was told that an offer couldn't be extended because a decision hadn't been made on the reorg, but were still interested. The entire process was lengthy (6+ weeks), cumbersome, and a complete waste of time! The position is still posted along with a couple other jobs in the same department. If this is how Ross treats candidates, I cannot imagine how they treat their employees (heard employees are not treated well either).

    I applied online – interviewed at Ross Stores in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I have an up coming interview on Tuesday, and wanted a few tips, and I see by reading the interview process is pretty simple. I also noticed that very few were subject to background checks and some hired on the spot........is this a common practice or do they background check for a higher position such as cash office?
