    Sales Floor Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ross Stores in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    The process took a couple weeks. I applied online around late January and didn't get a call back until a couple weeks later well into February. The interesting thing about that is, is that I almost did not do the online assessment that is required post application. I was honestly being lazy at the time, but I just told myself to do it, and I'm glad I did because I got the call. I went in for an interview and the Manager was lovely. She wasn't those holier than thou types of managers, She knew what it was to be a sales associate, and she didn't forget where she came from, so she was very accepting. After I was technically offered the position, but all i needed to do was pass the background check for it to become official. 48 hours later, which is today, I got the call to come in for an orientation. So yes, I'm now a Ross worker.

    Interview Questions
    • As for tips, when you come into any job interview, remain professional, but at the same time don't be a robot. They wanna see your personality as well, so be professional but also be exciting too, but of course don't over do it with the personality part too. I had previous retail experience at Sears, so me talking about my sears job was basically the main topic. Questions like "Tell me about yourself" "Where do you see yourself in five years" be prepared for scenario questions where they ask you what would you do when a costumer is upset. They'll most likely ask why you would want to work at Ross , so do a little research with the company. Dress casual, don't go in there wearing booty shorts and don't go in their wearing a suit and tie, its Ross, not american express inc.   Answer Question

    Retail Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bakersfield, CA (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bakersfield, CA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Ross Stores in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by the manager and assistant manager with another applicant. The interview was pretty easy, both interviewers were friendly. Just make sure you prepare with the questions and you'll be good. I wore a white blouse and black slacks and dress shoes. The other applicants wore denim jeans so I think that helped get me hired. I also researched the Ross company really well and discovered that they help many non profit organizations. Make sure you read which organizations and what those organizations do and make sure to mention them during the interview. The manager and assistant manager were very impressed that I knew that information.

    Anonymous Employee in Chula Vista, CA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Ross Stores in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Unprofessional.
    You have to wait at least an hour before you see the interviewer.
    It's not your professional interview.
    They put all interviewees in the same room and started to ask 3 questions:
    Why Ross?
    Tell me about yourself?
    Previous experience?

    Adding to this unprofessional interview process, this part time job is basically has no good side in any way, here are the features:
    1-start after 12:00 am
    2-not every night
    3-may 2-3 hours per night down to 0 (zero, you have read right) hour.
    4-the maximum hours you might get (if you get it) is 25 hours /week.
    5-no benefits of any kind.
    6-job includes in addition to stocking, you have to categorize the good before carry on to stock them

    I hope this helped

    Interview Details

    I went in for an interview in the morning and it lasted about 10 min. The manager was completely nice and welcoming and it didnt feel so much as an interview as it did a conversation with a few questions. We talked about availablity and work experience she liked me and offered me a job on the spot.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Ross Stores.

    Interview Details

    Group interview of 5 and we were asked questions all together with "Who wants to go first?" Make sure your that first person to stand out. Questions were "Why do you want to work for Ross?" and "Do you plan on moving up in the company?" type questions. They basically want to make sure you'll try your best to get promoted and not just want to stay in the same position.
