    I worked at Ross Stores full-time (More than 3 years)


    The culture at Ross is unlike any I have experienced before. Every person is made to feel appreciated, everybody matters and people are incredibly warm and welcoming.


    Too many working weekends that take away family time.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for fostering an amazing culture where the little people matter as much as those on top.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Ross Stores (Dallas, TX).


    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.
