    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Ross Stores.

    Interview

    The hiring process actually came after the interview of course. It was pretty average some questions they asked really made you think. But in the end, it was definitely worth it. Interview was probably about 20-30 minutes. Then when you're hired you have to go through all the tests and learn more about Ross stores. You have to pass them all also or the system will make you keep retaking them until you have 80% or better.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ross Stores (Orlando, FL).

    Interview

    I applied online and later received an email to attend a hiring event. I had to wait a while before receiving the email, maybe because I applied online. The day of the interview, there was a wait list, and they would call people to a one-on-one interview. It was very easy, straight forward questions. The person interviewing was very friendly and was filling out a worksheet during the interview. I didn't get the job because the interview was actually for an opening store so they needed flexible schedules.

    It moved fast because they were trying to fill a position but be prepared for several rounds. There was a phone interview with the recruiter and then in person recruiter interview. Then moved into several rounds with the buyer and all her superiors. They ask for pay stubs to prove employment, so be prepared.
