Assistant Store Manager Interview

Assistant Store Manager
Covina, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at dd's DISCOUNTS in November 2013.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you have a conflict with someone else.   Answer Question

Cashier/Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee
Vallejo, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed 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 Question – 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
