    Interview

    Interview process was easy and very quick. You walk in the store and everybody know you're there for an interview so they all stare at you. You will be told to meet at the back of the store where a manager will begin to conduct your interview. Interview last for about 7-9 minutes. Questions were fairly easy, basically why did you want to work there and what can you bring to their company.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Ross Stores (Central, TX).

    Interview

    You interview with one manager and if she likes you, you interview with the store manager. They ask the same questions, typical interview question most all could of been answered if they read the resume they required and the tedious online application. They are very unprofessional behavior, the store manager hardly looks at you and portraits an aura that you are below her and wasting her time. Overall simple experience with unplesant "professionals".

    Area Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Ross Stores (Houston, TX) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Basically she calls me for an interview and asked what position am I looking for. I'm thinking obviously the one I applied for but I told her only supervisor positions. After that she sets up my interview for the job I applied for. I waited about 10 to 15 minutes until a employee started walking me to her and the loss prevention guy was watching me like I was going to steal something. She asks me to tell her about my previous experiences and why i left those jobs and then tells me I'm not qualified for the supervisor position something she could have told me when she called. This place is 40 minutes away from my house I could have saved gas if she was honest enough to tell me at first. She then started to offer me sales associate position and front end supervisor. I was just looking for either a second job or a replacement job and since she wasn't giving me what I applied for I wasn't going to quit my job for that job and they pay less. So we talked a little more and she walked me out and during her walking with me she tells me would i change my hair color. She says ross is a "professional" environment and I would be the last thing customers see. Mind you I am already a supervisor in retail with purple and blue hair so why would I change it for a new job and a lower position. No Way..
