    Area Supervisor Interview

    Positive Experience
    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.

    Buyer Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Ross Stores.

    Interview

    They take FOREVER in the interview process. They might have you meet with a team one person per interview (don't know why they can't schedule in one day and not waste your time) and drag it on for a month to two months and they might have you meet with other teams and drag it out even further. I did not feel their HR person was very professional at all. They do not provide timely feedback as to where they are in the hiring process, and you have to reach out if you are curious - they don't give updates on their own.

    Interview Questions

    • They ask questions related to the position you are applying for and want to know if you have off-price experience.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ross Stores (Lihue, HI) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Group interview with two other candidates. Each of us were asked one question and that was it. We then heard more about the scheduling process and were shown the stockroom where we were told we would be working. Told of the strict color scheme of the required dress code and that outermost layer of clothing must be royal blue. No uniforms provided and even though we are working overnight and stocking we weren't allowed to wear jeans.

    Great interview - the team was very engaging and welcoming. I met with two people and the process lasted about an hour. I did not end up getting an offer due to lack of experience but I enjoyed my time with them!

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ross Stores.

    Interview

    I interviewed with the store manager and she was up front and very blunt about the work load which I appreciated. She was personable and we laughed about my personal experiences. She then told me " I haven't seen nothing yet" lol. And she was right, I have not. They are big on LP. Make sure to talk about how important internal theft is to you.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    I applied online. The very next day I got a phone call from a manager inviting me to an interview.

    Went to the interview. The guy didn't ask me any questions. The only thing he asked was past jobs and and availability. Interview didn't last 10 minutes. I asked him what to expect after the interview and he said he would call or email me within a couple days. I gave him a whole week and called him back when I didn't receive anything.
    When I called him to follow up he said he was "just talking about us the other day and that the store manager had to approve everybody." He also said that "they have been really busy" and that he'll call me the very next day to let me know for sure. Of course I never got anything so I just dropped it.
