Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Estero, FL
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Estero, FL
Application Details

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Ross Stores in May 2014.

Interview Details

After submitting my application, resume' and references online, I finally received a call to come in for an interview a month later. The store manager was very positive about the company, however, she was not ready for me at agreed time. I was also told that I would hear back in a week, regardless of outcome. I never heard back and it has been over a month. Very disappointing.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Ross Stores in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    Had a interview with store manager, then with the district manager. After I was hired I had 3 weeks of training in another store, so when I got to the store I would be able to do my job and have the associates confidence that I was able to performer my job. The culture of the company is all about respect, not just for your customers, but for the associates as well. I don't remember in my 3 years at Ross did a supervisor ever talk down to me. Don't get me wrong they do expect you to perform your job, but they have an excellent training program. It was a great company to work for. If you make your goal each month there were always rewards, pizza party's, gift cards and not just for the management team associates were always eligible as well.

    Negotiation Details
    They bring assistant managers in as hourly , but assistants get 5 hours over time each week. So when you go in and they tell you its an hourly position don't freak out. You come up with a yearly salary and they convert it into an hourly rate including your over time.

    Interview Details

    Applied on line. A week later I got a call from the store manager to come in for an interview. Before the interview, I went online to Glassdoor.com and looked up salary range for the position I was interviewing for. The cap on the salary was well below what I was currently making. I had put my salary requirements on the cover letter, which was not read or was ignored by the store manager in this process. I called and cancelled the interview.
