What We Do


A spirit of teamwork and creativity thrives within the Ross organization. That’s because every area is vital to our success.


Located in Pleasanton, CA—in the San Francisco Bay Area—Ross HQ supports the entire Ross network with functions such as finance, IT, HR, store operations, merchandise planning and allocation, and real estate/property development.


Our buying offices in New York and Los Angeles are the source of Ross merchandise. Located in the centers of the retail fashion districts, our buying staff finds bargains and negotiates deals from around the world. But it’s not just buying. Everything from forecasting and strategy development to regional analysis and planning happens here.


Our four state-of-the-art distribution facilities (in Carlisle, PA; Moreno Valley, CA; Perris, CA; and Fort Mill, SC) are the lifeline to Ross stores. From here, every piece of merchandise is received and distributed to our stores nationwide. This requires a diverse team of distribution, transportation and logistics professionals.


Our company relies on our retail associates and management teams to deliver the treasure hunt experience for our customers every day. Each store offers an easy-to-shop environment that showcases our great deals—and keeps customers coming back for more.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at dd's DISCOUNTS (San Diego, CA) in September 2015.


    There was openings for a new store. Applied online. Got a call two days later for an interview. Interviews were being held at a career center because the store wasn't open yet. I was interviewed by the store manager, but the assistant manager was in the back and was able to hear the interview. Both were very friendly. Felt like a natural conversation. I was asked 3 main questions. After giving my answers, the store manager said that he was comfortable in offering me a position. I just needed to go through a background check after. And he let me know what the upcoming dates were, like the soft opening, grand opening, and orientation. Paperwork was online and quick.
