Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Ross Stores in May 2012.
Interview Details – I applied online; two days after, I received a call from an Human Resource Representative (SHE SOUNDED VERY NICE). She told if I want to schedule an interview for the next day, and let me choose the time. So the next day, I went there; it was a very friendly environment. One of the employee walked me to the store manager's office. She was extremely friendly, nice, and looked very easy going. She asked me basic questions about my availabillity, my past experiences and my education background. We talked like we are long time and very close friends. She was amazed about my education background and my plan in the future. She congratulated me, told me she like it when black women like her have such big dreams in life, and advised me to stay in school (SHE EVEN GAVE ME HIGH 5......HOW COOL IS THAT) She offered me the job right away and told me to check my email for paperwork and also a date will be given (THAT WILL BE MY VERY FIRST DAY IN THE JOB) and after that I have to call so for me to know the time to come that day (ALL THAT WON"T BE DONE UNLESS THEY GET MY BACKGROUND CHECK RESULTS). Later that day, I received an email from the background check agency with a phone number to call for the next step of the background check processus. I called right away, the lady asked me for a reference number that was supposed to be in the email, my SSN, my address and my date of birth. Till of today I am awaiting for the paperwork in my email. DON'T get it yet; It's been 4 days now. I know, I am clean, so I have nothing to be worried about. I am just waiting :)
Negotiation Details – No negotiation.
I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Ross Stores in November 2011.
Interview Details –
2 weeks or so after applying I got a call for an interview for the next day, she asked basic questions like availability and experience, told me she decides who gets to go on an interview with her boss and told me to come back 2 days after to interview with him, he asked questions like when is it acceptable to be absent from work (never), a time in which I had an angry customer and how I dealt with it plus other interview q's, let me know it is only a seasonal position with the possibility of becoming permanent, and said he'd make a decision later that night, 2.5 hours later I got a call informing me they are sending me documents to fill out and begin working in one week.
Always look the interviewer in the eye since it shows respect, be comfortable and speak confidently, also answer fast, if you take too long it doesn't look good, it seems like you're inventing your answer on the spot.
