    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ross Stores.

    Interview

    I applied two weeks before I got a call back. The interview was a group interview then individually. I was the last to be interviewed and the manager asked me two questions and then ended it. I totally thought that I didn't get it but then I got an email.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Ross Stores (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Within 20 minutes of setting up the interview, I received an email stating the position I applied for was closed. I contacted recruitment and was told it was an error. I didn't want to waste my time with an interview which was not going to lead anywhere. Upon arriving at their office 15 mins early, I was given an application which all information was mandatory even with a resume. Off the bat you are to provide three references. I was escorted into a very small office (my knees kept hitting the desk in front of me and there was no room to move back) where two recruiters conducted the interview.
