    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed 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.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    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

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Ross Stores (New York, NY) in January 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Ross Stores (New York, NY) in November 2013.

    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.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

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