    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Ross Stores (Chula Vista, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Unprofessional. You have to wait at least an hour before you see the interviewer. It's not your professional interview. They put all interviewees in the same room and started to ask 3 questions: Why Ross? Tell me about yourself? Previous experience? Adding to this unprofessional interview process, this part time job is basically has no good side in any way, here are the features: 1-start after 12:00 am 2-not every night 3-may 2-3 hours per night down to 0 (zero, you have read right) hour. 4-the maximum hours you might get (if you get it) is 25 hours /week. 5-no benefits of any kind. 6-job includes in addition to stocking, you have to categorize the good before carry on to stock them I hope this helped

    Negotiation

    It was good. She offered me a job and I took it. I wish I hadn't. It was a new Ross too (A new store). I literally put everything in the Ross together, and then they fired me, with no WARNING. I rescheduled twice and they fired me, no warning. Everytime I got in late, or rescheduled because I couldn't come, I called. But I received no warning when I got fired. At least a "Don't do this again or we will fire you" would have sufficed. What kind of business are you running? I was a great worker too. It just blows my mind everytime I think about it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ross Stores (Federal Way, WA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I'm a teenager and this is my first real job. So, just like anyone with their first real job opportunity, I was nervous. I saw the Ad on Craigslist and Careerbuilders.com that showed there was going to be a job fair on Saturday and it explained I should apply at Ross.com. I tried to go to Ross beforehand to meet the managers (cause I had no idea what they would be like) and they seemed neutral. The hiring manager, though, was very sweet and told me about how she'd love to see me during the job fair. So I went, and I had to wait about 30 minutes because the second manager/hiring manager wasn't there on time. I finally got called up and went in for my interview. This hiring manager (different from the first) was extremely down to earth and nice. He kept saying my name wrong and I'd correct him politely and he apologized and you could tell he was serious about it. He asked me a few questions and was very happy to see that I wanted to grow in the business (I want to become a manager when I grow up) and told me about what would happen next in the hiring process. He remembered my name and I was excited cause I've read that's a good sign. I got an email later saying that I was hired and then I did my paperwork the next day. I start on monday, so the whole process took about 2 weeks at most.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Ross Stores (Vancouver, WA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied, but I didn't get a reply until about two months later, which was a little discouraging. The actual interviews were very positive: my new supervisors were very upbeat about the position and the store and seemed genuinely in not only my work experience, but also who I am outside of work. I felt very welcome throughout both of the interviews that I had. My supervisor told that I had basically gotten the position in my second interview.
