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

    Pros

    * 15% off the price of the stock is a fantastic deal and the stock has soared over the last 5 years * The 401K has also performed fairly well * It's nice to know you're working 45 hours and nothing more. Good work/life balance * Simple uniform makes it easy to decide what to wear every day" * Pay was good as I was brought it at top pay rate * Company is growing like crazy * Fun to interact with customers

    Cons

    * They pay the hourly help very poorly yet demand a LOT * District Managers and their bosses tend to be quite impersonable * Freight flow is often higher than the amount of hours you have to spend on help to do the job

    Advice to Management

    Engage the stores in a friendlier manner. They are the people who are paying your salaries through their hard work. Yes, be tough when necessary, but there's nothing wrong with a little positive enouragement too. Ross is a growing company and that should be used to make the employees feel a sense of ownership in it. You guys so often seem like a bunch of sourpusses. Try smiling!

    I have been working at Ross Stores full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Overall a great company to work for. There is strong and intelligent upper management in place. Buying office is in a convenient location in mid-town. New corporate office in CA is beautiful. Growing company with a fast paced culture.

    Cons

    The office in NY could use some additional renovations, certain floors are still an old New York building. Growing fast, so lots of new people, training has improved over the last couple of years.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote from within. Stay competitive with salary, good benefits, and bonuses to keep employees happy. Keep on renovating the office!
