Profitable company that delivers consistent financial results. Track record of strong store growth and exceeding company sales and profit goals.

Very top heavy in senior management. Processes took a great deal of time due to the number of decision makers invloded. Company does not always respond to feedback from team to ipmprove morale and working conditions.

    Pros

    Financial stability, career growth opportunites, great prices! Very much enjoy the people I work with; everyone cares and is pasionate about our company. Feel I have the opportunity to make a difference every day in my role.

    Cons

    Our IT systems are antiquated but we are working on solutions for the future. Anticipate the continued focus on personal and professional growth that I have seen the last couple of years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the people focus along with profitability in balance.

    Lacks clear direction & focus from leadership. Runs their employees to the ground without compensation.

    I worked at Ross Stores full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I learned a lot working from Ross at this point in my career. It taught me what to look for from future leadership partners and companies that I work for as well as what type of leader I do (and don't) want to be. I'm thankful I had this experience so I'll know what red flags to look for so I'll hopefully never have it again.

    Cons

    There is no true opportunity for growth or development here. This company lacks creativity, integrity, moral standards and core values. There are no priorities for their employees well being or a sense of balance in the work place. The employees are all over-worked and under-paid, from corporate to field. They lack the ability to maintain a balance between being open to change and new ideas while staying true who they are as a business. The employees are miserable and the HR department should be taken to the labor board.
