Retail Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in DeKalb, IL
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Ross Stores (DeKalb, IL) in August 2016.

Interview

I had a one 15 minute interview and got offered the job. They were hiring a lot of people for the holidays. It was a young manager who interviewed me. Asked about class schedule as it is in a college town and many people who work there are students. Easy job, they had to let a manager go while I was there as she was unfit to handle the job.

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ross Stores (San Diego, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Strange. Five of us were seated in a circle and the same question was asked of each of us in turn. This happened 4 or 5 times. There were apparently several other groups being interviewed the same day, so competition was intense but there were no private interviews. The company never called to say yes or no to passing the interview. Guess that meant no.
