Assistant Store Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Seminole, FL

I applied in-person and 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.
