I have been working at Ross Stores part-time (less than a year)

Pros

It was a new store so got experience opening a brand new store
Made some cool friends

Cons

New manager didn't exactly run the store in an efficient manner
Hired a bunch of people to open the store and but cut back a lot of the hours and people because they didn't have enough money in their budget
No one could be transferred to a different store
management and supervisors weren't consistent or on the same page with what needed to be done

    I have been working at Ross Stores full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They care about your work life balance...most of the time.

    Cons

    You make no real decisions on your own, the merchants make all the decisions and are treated like like they are royalty. Half the merchants don't understand excel and expect you to do most of their work for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let employees make more independent decisions. The difference between merchant and planner bonuses is horrible!

    I have been working at Ross Stores part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    good discounts 20%, 40% on certain times of the year
    nice coworkers
    very flexible hours works well if you are going to school
    company thats gaining popularity

    Cons

    do a lot with little recognition
    rude customers
    the company itself has a lot of flaws, like giving up better working facilities
    always busy
    open late

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you should really try and recognize the employees more. they do so much for you guys and all the new management that is being brought in outside the company hasn't been doing a good job of that.
