    Receptionist Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Ross Stores in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I got a call a few days after I applied to come in for an interview which they were very flexible with scheduling. I interviewed with the same person I talked to on the phone I believe I handed her(one of the MODs) my resume which she skimmed over. She asked me why I wanted to work at Ross I told her I shop here all the time it's near where my mom lives since I live on campus and like to be home on the weekends so I would rather work near home, but there is a bus line to both locations from here. Then she asked if I have any role models for a good work ethic which is personally a question I had never heard of but I told her about my grandma who still works warehouse jobs even in her 50s but never minds and always does what she has to which I respect.

    Interview Questions
    • Probably the work ethic role model one, they get a lot of lazy kids trying to apply and flaking out days later, I think that question is just trying to get at what sort of background you come from, whether or not you'll be likely to keep coming back and keep to your word and be a hard worker at that because Ross stores, any location, are a dang mess   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    right after the initial 2 questions I asked when she would get back to me by and she said well I, going to offer you a position right now and she did and I took home paperwork right then and came in the next tuesday for my orientation

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at Ross Stores in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, got a class back within a week. They told me to come in for an interview. I interviewed with the assistant manager with basic questions. Super basic like "Why do you want to work for us?" He also asked about working in fast pace environments. Make sure to rave how much you love them. After the interview, I went to go get a few groceries and the store manager called asking if I could come back in immediately, I did. He asked similar questions and started telling me about the job. I was hired immediately.

    Retail Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR (US)
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Ross Stores in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I filled in an application for Ross with the knowledge of doing seasonal work for them. I was offered an interview the next day on the phone and went in a few days later. The interview itself was standard procedure, with questions like "how many times is a good amount to be late for work" none of course. The manager herself was very nice and has a wonderful bubbly personality. And in the end despite only being availible to work for the next month, as I am going to move across country for college, she was able to fight for me and I'm very excited to start this week. Absolutely recommend for people with limited experience to gain said work experience and/or going off to college looking for seasonal work.

    Entry level position, not really negotiable. I am able to have a relatively flexible schedule, though I did request as many hours as they could give me.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Ross Stores in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and a week later they called and asked me to come for an interview. I arrived there about 5 minutes early but seem like they didn't like me coming just 5 minutes early so they had me wait in the back for about 15 or 20 minutes. Then I spoke to the hiring manager. While I maintained eye contact and talk confidently about my volunteer experience, the manager couldn't look me in the eye, he kept looking at the ground while he spoke. I asked all the questions but honestly felt like I didn't get the job just because I don't have any retail experience even though they were paying minimum wage. A week after the interview I called to follow up and were told that they were still waiting for my background check and he'll call me back when he receive it. I never heard from them again.

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Ross Stores.

    Interview Details

    Questions that had nothing to do with the job. Distracted manager. Loud interruptions. Waited while the manager talked with an associate for 10 minutes. Asked irrelevant questions. Talked to too many people that did not seem interested in what the answer would be......more like, they just wanted to get it over with.
