    Pros

    Great Co-Workers and Managers, came into work feeling at home, all managers and supervisors were extremely friendly and approachable

    Cons

    Can be understaffed at times, store becomes very messy throughout the course of the day. Seem to hire upper level management from outside. Sometimes they will make unrealistic demands and have unrealistic expectations having never worked in a Ross store.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more associates, try to keep up with the unreasonable expectations, continue to make employees feel welcome and comfortable, give stores payroll to hire the amount of employees to effectively run the store.

    Pros

    Ross stores has been a great place to work. The company rewards those that are hard working, collaborative and results oriented. There are also advancement and career development opportunities given the expected company growth. It's a great time to be at Ross Stores.

    Cons

    It's important to recognize that it takes time to drive initiatives, program enhancements and change at Ross. Not because the company is slow, but because it's thoughtful, thorough and strategic. If you can embrace this you will do well here. Stay the course and push forward.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop associates and promote talent from within.

    I worked at Ross Stores

    Pros

    Good discount is 20% off .
    Willing to work with your schedule. Good for people who only need to work as fulltime.

    Cons

    Mostly everyone is hired as partime. Very few people are fulltime . Very little hours. Always cutting hours and never have enough people wording on very high turn around rate. They really suck with the pay its min- wage.

    Advice to Management

    To stop being so prideful and getover themselves, so very unorganized always having to refix the schedule. Nothing but favor for a lot of employees that dont work good.
