    Store Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Burke, VA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Ross Stores (Burke, VA).

    Interview

    The interview process was easy as I had previous experience as a volunteer store associate at another organization, which aided me to my advantage. The questions asked were mainly focused on my availability and personal information, rather than "typical" competence and experiences questions asked to screen candidates.

    Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ross Stores (Los Angeles, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    At first I wasn't expecting to get the job because it took almost 3 weeks to hear from anyone about having an interview. The interview process itself was fairly smooth, I got a call and the manager asked me to come in the next day for an interview. Everyone at this particular store is young and around the same age so talking to the manager wasn't very intimidating. I really liked her interviewing style because it felt more like a normal conversation and that really helped eliminnate nerves. She told me that it would take a week or two for my background check, but it ended up only taking a few days.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ross Stores (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    Good interview.. A few basic situational questions then a quick run down of the company and benefits. Expectations, pay, and a get to know me session.. Lasted about 35-40 minutes... Was called by DM a 3 days later to set up second interview which was about the same atmosphere.. I was contacted on a Wed, interview was the next day in person. Impressed by experience and management style so it was more them selling the company to me.. I was then contacted the next day with interview request from Zone Director who wished to schedule but I preferred to get right into it and this was by phone. Another good one on one. Asked about experience and management style and some techniques. Let me know how excited everyone was about me as a candidate. They were all great with a great team. I was contacted a few hours later with an offer. Had to do background which took a week and wanted to onboard me the following week. Sadly, I was sitting on 4 other offers and didn't want them to waste time waiting on my decision considering I had so many great offers...

    I wish them all the best and let them know I would continue following the company and if whatever I decide doesn't work out, would definitely look to work for them in the future.. Ross has so much growth and potential and this was a great team of people.

    I was maxed out on my offer plus more so no need to negotiate. I would recommend if necessary though and don't jump on the first offer BC you have room for more that includes vacation as well..

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ross Stores (Morrow, GA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was conducted in front of the store.Since I was being hired as temp, I guess it wasn't necessary to conduct the interview in the back office. I was asked certain questions about if I operated an cashier before and what were some of my experiences in retail. The interviewer also asked me what times will I most likely be available.She also wanted to know what type of worker I was and why I was interested in Ross Dress for Less. She often mentioned that the company is looking for people to grow with the company and that Ross has many benefits to offer its employees.
