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 Management

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 Management

    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.

    I have been working at Ross Stores full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is a ton of growth potential for hard working individuals with strong leadership skills. The people that I work with both at the store level and above have really been great.

    Cons

    There is a bit too much micro management. I can see why it is needed to a certain extent to help with consistency and to develop weaker managers, but for someone who is experienced and has strong leadership skills it is a sufficating.
