Pros

Plenty of fun, most employees are happy there and those that aren't can except their problems addressed promptly, even though I'm part time there are plenty of people who call in so I get good hours, generous discount, I am generally not ashamed of what we sell - I would buy it

Cons

A few lazy supervisors, customers can be frustrating and very rude, cleaning up the store can be insane and it gets very messy, customers love to steal and can't be trusted, customers are very irresponsible about their kids snd let them run all over messing the store up

Advice to Management

Keep an eye on those in management positions, not just those in entry level spots, have associates clean bathroom instead of cleaning crew once a day-it gets filthy

    Pros

    Tons of advancement opportunity.
    Wonderful management.
    Amazing store programs and policies.
    They care about their employees. Corporate included, which is rare.
    $50 bonus for Employee of the Month
    Open communication between associates and managers.
    Flexible with scheduling.
    Recognize hard work.
    They care about and appreciate the customers.
    20% discount PLUS three times a year the company gives a "double discount" week in which employees get 40% off everything! It's amazing!
    Percentage off of Ross stock which is sky-rocketing.

    I had no previous supervisor experience but was still promoted in only 2 months with the company. They really do reward hard work and recognize it, regardless of experience. I could talk to management about not only work related issues, but also about personal things and they cared and did whatever they could to help.

    Cons

    Store hours are long. Open until 10 on weekdays, 10:30 Friday and Saturday, and 9:30 on Sundays.
    Start at minimum wage, usually no matter what your experience.

    Pros

    Certain divisions are very good and in these areas there are opportunities for growth. Work/life balance is trying to be improved. Compensation is competitive.

    Cons

    There is no consistency among divisions. Some areas have great, team focused, healthy, work/life balanced environments and others are the complete opposite. Upper management does well managing numbers but does not excel at managing or growing people. Communication can also be inconsistent overall both between immediate managers and upper management. There is also a significant amount of micromanagement and overall lack of training when transitioning into new areas.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees (assistant buyers and buyers) to give anonymous feedback. Having feedback meetings in which HR and senior management sit in aren't going to produce candid, honest, feedback.
