    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ross Stores.

    Interview

    I talked to the hiring manager briefly, and he asked me pretty routine interview questions--strengths/weaknesses, etc. After that, the store manager was available and I went to talk to her. She asked me a lot of the same stuff. I left, and about thirty minutes later they called me to offer me a job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Ross Stores.

    Interview

    The manager called my home and I wasn't there but my grandma told me to call them back. I was on the road and they wanted me to come in so I was dressed casually. The manager interviewed me in the middle of the store. I thought it went really well! He told me to wait while he got the other manager so she could interview me. He came back and said she was in a conference call so they would call me. They never did and when I called them...it seemed like the managers weren't communicating with each other. Very confusing.
