    Cons

    Low pay & little or no raises. ,Lack of transparency in company, poor communications all around in company, Management & store associates, Upper Management & store management, Corporate officials lacks any interaction with the store associates during a store visit. Lack of understanding by management on use of training tools & charts. Lack of Motivation by Management (upper & store levels) Lack of recognition of associate performance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need better communication with associates by upper management & corporate management. Need better recognition of associates not just an employee of the month

    I have been working at Ross Stores full-time

    Pros

    Pay, bonus and benefits are competitive and the work itself is simple.
    Good for those that want to climb the corporate ladder.

    Cons

    Heaviest workload amongst all Retailers, so be prepared for 60-70 hour work weeks.
    Extremely level driven culture reflects poor taste and internal processes show a lack of understanding for the complex mix of generations within a team.
    Regardless of department and skill sets, all work is project based. With project scopes in constant flux, it's challenging to close out a project at all.
    Unforgiving environment overall with an incredibly high turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to understand your team members and learn strategies that would retain them.
    Don't try to get ahead on the backs of your team members.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
