As others have stated, 18. Experience will put you ahead of the other applicants but not a requirement. However, every aspect of your work whether it be on the sales floor, register, or stock room is timed and without experience, you are set up to fail.
How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at Ross Dress For Less? What are the steps along the way?
I applied for Area Supervisor, was unqualified. Applied again a few months later and got a call for an interview within 3 hours of submitting my application. Great interview, hired on the spot as a Front End Supervisor. Took about a week and a half for the background check and another week to be put on the schedule.
Depends on your store and availability. There are both part time and full time positions at my store, sales floor, stock team, and Front End Supervisor. You must have open availability to work full time, though. And hours will be drastically cut for PT employees during slow season, which is mainly right after Christimas until tax time.
It was very quick. After working there for a while now, I know it’s because the managers don’t really have time to conduct interviews. These stores are understaffed and busy. So first impressions are everything. Just be friendly and quick and they will hire you.
I get nauseous and nervous on my way to work. I never want to be there, there is nothing about this job that brings any fulfillment. It's a paycheck, a small one, and I need that. Everyone I work with is equally miserable but afraid to say so because retaliation at this company is very real.
What would you suggest Ross Dress For Less management do to prevent others from leaving?
I've been with the company for only 9 1/2 months. Since this time more than 20 people have come and gone. (Serious, & very sad truth) Here's a few suggestions (you'll most likely ignore)... Train employees the Ross way (myself included) Communicate with everyone so all teams are on the same page. Appreciate the loyal people you have (if any) Quit giving employees who call out regularly more hours than the people who are wanting hours and always available. Quit taking advantage of these employees and promote them instead of hiring out others you worked with before. When the buck gets passed to you, take responsibility and own it! Don't keep passing it on... And ASK , don't assume your loyal , hard working employees can work late, come in early, or cover for the lazy ones you give all the hours to! Be fair. Listen to what employees have to say. Explain things you want done clearly. We can't read your minds. Cross train. Re-train.Help out. Be a part of your stores team. Stop staring at the computer In the office eating chips. Introduce us to the higher ups when they appear. Give feedback. Listen to feedback. Follow up on tasks, give praise as well as constructed criticism. It helps us to know what we need to do to improve work productivity & possibly help bring up store sales. (or loss) learn to make better employees by knowing your own job as well as others. That IS why you're manager right? I've noticed most of the people leave because they find jobs with more hours, better boss's and/or ALOT more pay. HALF of them have left or transferred out because they just got sick & tired of being ignored, used, and passed over time and again without explanations or reasons other than " your not ready for the job, or theres no time to train you" OR (my favorite) "Ha ha wish I could" (As you're being introduced to another NEW employee they've worked with before...) It gets old. It gets frustrating. Come to think of it, since reviewing what I've just wrote for this question, I believe I'll start looking elsewhere myself!
Usually 4-8 hrs depending on time of year and your store. But once theygive you a decent amount of hours one week, they give you barely anything the next.
