I worked at Ross Stores full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good Corporate structure, great benefits, excellent pay and bonus

Cons

Zone and regional management lead by intimidation. Constant beat down which leaves Store Management with a sense of "what's the use in trying"

Advice to ManagementAdvice

CYA. Document every and I mean every discussion with your employees. Don't give anyone a 2nd chance. Write them up and get rid of anyone who is not a robot

    I worked at Ross Stores part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I worked with some genuinely nice people and we'd get first dibs on discounted items, plus a 20% store-wide discount

    Cons

    "Low payroll company," meaning that there were no raises, and they had to rush you out some weeks to avoid paying you anymore than planned - resulting in a messy store environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get organized!
