    Normal interviewing process that had 3 interviews with reference and background check. Simple but long process and when hired training is very little. Should be familiar with off price retail to adapt easily to processes to be successful.

    For college recruiting it was a three interview process. They will ask about 10 behavioral type questions all starting with "Tell me about a time" so be ready to give very specific questions based on STAR. If you master that you'll do great.

    Cashier/Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vallejo, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vallejo, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at dd's DISCOUNTS in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Apply at RossStores.com and if you qualify they will call you in for an interview. It took about 2 weeks from the time I applied for them to call me for an interview. You come in for that interview, they ask you some typical interview questions (What do you know about dd's? Why do you wanna work here? Tell me about yourself.), and if you make it for a second interview that is basically your background check (meaning you are highly considered!). If you pass the background check they will call you for a job offer.

    Interview Questions
    • It was sorta terrifying that the store manager was at the second interview! You gotta impress HIM to get in! (He's really nice it's just a little intimidating because he's the big boss, you know?) When he asks you what do you know about dd's DON'T say it is a discount or a bargain store! (Even though it is...lol) He somehow sounded offended/appalled/flabbergasted by that & tried so hard to prove me wrong on that despite I memorized that word for word right from their website career page.   View Answer
