    Group interview of 5 and we were asked questions all together with "Who wants to go first?" Make sure your that first person to stand out. Questions were "Why do you want to work for Ross?" and "Do you plan on moving up in the company?" type questions. They basically want to make sure you'll try your best to get promoted and not just want to stay in the same position.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Ross Stores in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    It was a group interview with three other individuals. Many questions about past security experience were asked. We then did role playing about potential scenarios that might take place in the position to which we were applying for. It took about an hour for the whole process. Overall it was not to tedious or stressful because of the way it was preformed in a group.

    The process took a weekinterviewed at Ross Stores in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    My first interview was with an assistant manager, who basically gave me a couple situational questions like "why do you want to work here?" and "How would you make Ross grow as a whole?". I was a little nervous, and she could tell, so she told me for the real interview with the main manager, to sound more confident. Two days later I was interviewed with the main manager, and took the advice and ended up doing well. The manager decided I was more fit to work as a sales associate, and after a background check, she hired me.
