Pros

1 weekend off a month, 1 close per week. Good work life balance.

Cons

Coming from a different retailer, significant pay cut...

Advice to Management

With the kind of growth Ross is experiencing, it would add more value to pay store managers, asm/as and store level employees more money.

    Pros

    Great opportunity for advancement.
    Flexible hours.
    Fast paced environment.
    Great recognition for great people.

    Cons

    "Do more with less" seems to be a constant trend.
    Minimum wage for starting pay. Raises are not the greatest. New associates are only offered part-time hours making it difficult to support a family.
    Management bonuses are based on reviews and non-controllables as well as time in position. That means an outstanding manager that helps turn a store around may not get a bonus, whereas an average manager who's only done the bare minimum may simply because he/she has been in position longer.

    Advice to Management

    Pay and bonuses should reflect productivity not time in grade.
    Greater flexibility with payroll would encourage outstanding associates to be more productive, increase moral, and result in a TRUE Customer Experience.
