Interview Details – One of my friends was working for Ross and introduced me to the store manager. but my friend told me first i should apply online. Then I went to Ross and have a quick and nice chat about 10 min with manager. and that's it.

Negotiation Details – I told the manager that" I am ready to work in any position" ( because I desperately want the job) and that was a mistake. She gave me the worse position in Ross (stock associate)

Interview Details – I had applied online and I got called a week later. The manager asked me if I could come in for an interview at 3 pm the next day. I then agreed to go after school for the interview. They had me wait in the break room for about 15 minutes before one of the assistant managers called me into her office. The interview itself was pretty straightforward with questions like "Where do you see yourself in 5 years". After the questions she talked about my availability and how I was going to balance school with work. She then offered me the job and told me when to come in for training.

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Ross Stores in October 2013.
Interview Details – Applied online, your typical stuff really. Had one of those annoying online assessments that have become a norm with jobs nowadays. The end of the assessment ended up being some gibberish number patterns that didn't seem like they had any relevance. Well after I applied I got an interview about 5 days later. Their SPS position ended up be taken so I took sales associate instead. All in all the process took about a week and a half before I started working, General manager was friendly and professional. Says their liable to drug test but I doubt they would, costs too much.
Interview Question – None. All of it was super simple. Maybe the ridiculous number patterns. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – The SPS Position ended up being filled so I took the sales associate position. No opportunity for full time here. 25 hours a week max. You'll need a second job. Starting pay is 7.25 an hour for associates, 9.0 for Loss Prevention. No health benefits either obviously.
I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Ross Stores in October 2013.
Interview Details – I applied online and got a call from a manager 10 days later asking if I would be available for an in person interview. We set up the date and time and hung up. I went in for my interview and was asked to tell her about myself. She then explained about Ross and their procedures. She asked me why I wanted to work for Ross. I gave her my several reasons and she asked me if what she had described in the position details would be acceptable to me and I agreed. She then offered me the position contingent on my background check. A week later my background check came in and I received a phone call asking what time I was available for orientation. We set up the time and date and hung up. I had two emails from Ross before orientation with some of the hiring paperwork and W-4 forms. They were to be completed before orientation. Orientation lasted 8 hours and began with the usual reading pamphlets and watching the store videos. We signed papers and then were given a tour of the store. After that, we were paired up with a buddy trainer to begin the training process.

Interview Details –
The application was fairly long but pretty easy. The response time was not the best - by the time I finally (and thankfully) got a call back I completely forgot that I had applied! While waiting for my first interview madness in the store had me sitting there for about 30 minutes before the assistant manager finally got a few minutes to do my interview. The questions were very easy and I felt comfortable answering them all.
I was questioned about prior jobs I had listed on my resume. Some schooling - if I was in school or not. What was the most stressful situation I have ever had with a customer and how did I handle it. And lastly, what have I done in my past that was fast paced and some what difficult that would guarantee I would be an asset to the team.
I was told once the interview was over (around 1pm) that I would (most likely) get a call around 5 if I qualified from all the interviews that had been done and still needed to be done to schedule a second interview with the store manager. By 3 pm I had a voice mail asking me to come back the very next day!
The store manager asked me the same question. Went over job expectations and some store policies to make sure I was completely positive I wanted a job. Then proceeded to off the record hire me and start my background check so I can be official on the books!
Unfortunately the background check to an extremely long 3 weeks to finally come through. The very next day I went to orientation and day after that had my first day!
I have now been here for 4 months and I absolutely LOVE IT.
