Don't you just love fresh produce? Women from our IT team recently spent some time at Fertile Groundworks, a garden in Livermore, CA that partners with local soup kitchens and food pantries to provide produce year-round to the hungry.
In addition to providing fresh produce, they hope to teach Tri-Valley residents how to garden and the importance of organic and sustainable farming. Ross volunteers help with miscellaneous garden maintenance activities, including planting, harvesting, and weeding.

I have been working at Ross Stores full-time (Less than a year)
It's great to work every day with talented, smart, driven, helpful, accountable coworkers and leaders! Culture is positive, and consistent with the brand. Company performance is strong due to a solid business strategy. Leaders are truly developmentally focused with their team members, providing actionable timely feedback, which I appreciate. Ultimately, it is a great cultural fit for me.
The hiring process can take a while, so be prepared. But the team kept me informed throughout the process, and in the end, it was definitely worth the wait.
Advice to Management
Continue the rock solid focus on executing the business strategy.
I applied in-person. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Ross Stores (New York, NY) in September 2017.
Started with a quick 30 min on-campus interview in late September followed by an invitation to their super day interview in NYC. They paid for all transportation costs, even flights. Super day consisted of individual 30 min interview sessions with 2 senior buyers and planners.
The planners were looking for more analytical mindsets and buyers were looking for more conversational people. If you are looking to land the buying position you have to find common ground with your interviewer and make it more conversational instead of a stiff interview.
Overall it was a really quick process, took a little over a month from initial interview to final offer.
