Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Ross Stores (Dallas, TX).

Interview

Applied online and received a call the next day from the store manager. He went over my work experience, discussed the pay rate and asked why I left my previous employer. He asked to have a 1:1 interview with him the next day. The interview lasted about 30 minutes it was all about going over my experience and what the job entailed. Next step was the interview with the District Manager which was a few days later. He was very nice it was more like a conversation than a interview he was very impressed with my resume and went over a few things from my past work experience and offered me the position immediately.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Ross Stores (Kenosha, WI) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The DM (District Manager) conducted the interview over the course of about 10 minutes. I was an internal promotion so I already showed an interest in the company and was very knowledgeable about the business. People who have worked retail are great candidates for this position, or anyone who has ever managed. I later found out that I was the only one dressed up in professional clothing out of the 3 candidates for the interview, so be sure to dress nicely!

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ross Stores in January 2017.

    Interview

    For internal promotion, you are required to do an interview with 8 managers from the different Ross stores, then meat with the district manager and the area loss prevention manager. It was like a two hour process, but I enjoyed it. Talking to the different managers you learn different perspectives and new things. I was asked pretty much the same questions over and over but each manager analyzed your answers differently. I wasn't well prepared for the interview, but they thought I did a good job. I didn't get the job right away, they thought I had to work on certain things before I got the promotion. Which I'm glad for, because now that I think about it, if I had gotten the position right away, I probably would have sunk. I had some things to learn and I am glad that they took the opportunity to teach me and develop me. The interview is easier if you are prepared, I would do it again if I wanted another promotion. This time I will be better prepared, because I know what to expect and how to answer the questions. You have to be super confident in the interviews, even if you are a little bit timid they will pick up on it.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Ross Stores.

    Interview

    The interview process can be intense. They put you through a manager assessment program. You go through 3 to 4 separate interviews in one afternoon. Each manager will ask you several different questions and you spend about 30 minutes with each manger. You may also be asked to complete a floor walk through and you really need to know retail, profit and loss, and overall company lingo. The mangers will discuss who is ready to proceed to the next step and who will need more coaching and training. You have to complete a MAP every time you wish to move up in the company.
