Application

I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Ross Stores.

Interview

I applied online and was called about two days later with the offer of an interview. The manager who had interviewed me was very kind, and she made me feel very welcome. She asked a few questions and we chatted a bit before she offered me the position, telling me that I accepted HR would email me with some paperwork that would be filled out electronically. After the initial paperwork everything was pretty self explanatory. I had to complete some more online forms, and then I got a call from the manager who let me know the date of my orientation.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ross Stores (Las Vegas, NV).

    Interview

    Interview went well and I was offered a position (I applied for pt/ft daytime cashier but was interviewed for temp nighttime stock) My interviewer (name is Mele) told me the job was contigent on my back ground check and to call her if I didn't hear back within a week. After a week had passed I called her to see what was up. She then informed me that an email was sent, and in order to proceed with my background check I had to first accept the job through the email...I told her I check my email multiple times per day, including the spam folder. She asked for my phone number and said she would call me back with more info. That was a week ago.
    So, not only did I authorize a background check to be done on my application and at the conclusion of my interview, apparently I also had to consent to an email that was never sent.
    I don't care if they found someone more qualified, or if the position has since been filled; I do care that my time was wasted and disapprove of their lack of professionalism. I am still waiting for a call back regarding this email that still has not been sent.
    It is unfortunate for them considering I am an army veteran and businesses are given incentives for hiring vets. After this experience, I will be moving on to better things, happily.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ross Stores (Sacramento, CA).

    Interview

    The interview process was longer than I expected based on the reviews I read online. My interview was at least 20 minutes long, with basic retail related questions and questions pertaining to my past employment. The manager was friendly and enthusiastic. One week after applying online, I was given a call by the assistant manager who asked me to go in for an interview. After the interview I was offered a position and waited 2 weeks for the background check and paperwork to clear.
