    Interview Details

    I first met with an HR manager after she found me on LinkedIn. Questions were pretty standard, though she did test me on my fashion trend knowledge. About a week later, I met with one of the Buyers. She was extremely nice, and the interview was pretty easy-going.

    Interview Questions
    • During my second interview, we played a "rate yourself" game. I would suggest thinking carefully before rating yourself, so that you seem confident yet also a bit self-critical.   Answer Question

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Ross Stores in May 2014.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Ross Stores.

    Interview Details

    HR-- Mostly behavioral. Focus on why Ross and why the specific position. Some parts of your resume will be hand selected and you have to offer more detail. I was passed onto next round.
    There was a retail math test that came partially as a surprise, and you are asked to fill out a form with referrals and work experience.

    Buyer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Ross Stores in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    had great conversation with all 10 interviewers all 10 times but was disappointed with their decisions when they advised i was rejected from the process because i was moving a missing part in my experience. Considering i made it that far in the process perhaps they could have screened that lack of experience in advance instead of spending 1 month and half.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Ross Stores in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Extremely long interview process. Interviewers ask questions and take detailed notes on your answers. They set up half hour phone appointments with each of your references so make sure you are careful about who you chose to list. Overall everyone is very friendly and enjoyable to speak with.

    Interview Questions
    • A ton of behavioral questions. Not all of them applied to anything I've done.   View Answer

    They will negotiate but I think it slows the process quite a bit.

    Location Planning Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Ross Stores.

    Interview Details

    Quick phone interview with HR. She set me up with an office visit for two days later. Filled out a short retail math test (10 minutes) in the lobby before getting to speak with HR. Spoke to HR one-on-one for 30 minutes and then two managers separately. They seemed to really want someone with prior experience as a planner or financial analyst.

    Interview Questions
    • Why Ross?
      What do you know about the company and about the job?
      What did you do in your prior job?
      Why planning? Why a planner and not a buyer?
      How good are you at excel (supposedly they do a lot of analytic work- but advanced excel is not necessary)?
      If you were to open up a business, where would you open it and why?

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Ross Stores.

    Interview Details

    I was referred by a Manager I used to work for at a prior company. The interview process was unnecessarily long. It took me approximately 3 months in total from my first interview to getting an offer. I interviewed with 11 people. Out of those 11 interviews only 1 was HR. I understand they want the right fit, but 11 interviews are excessive.

    • All the questions were straightforward, nothing difficult.   Answer Question
