I worked at Ross Stores

Pros

They pay well plus big bonus potential. It is a very fast paced job. The peer group within your district is very supportive.

Cons

Work life balance does not exist. Salary is based on a 45 hour work week but 60-70 hours is more the norm. The stores are seriously under payrolled. Failure to make the impossible happen is met with swift and degrading feedback. There is a lack of respect for Store managers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think that they should ask themselves why their turnover is so high. Put more payroll into the stores instead of promoting more executives. Cleaner stores wouold surely gain more business and less complaints.

    I have been working at Ross Stores

    Pros

    Ross provides an opportunity to manage a large store with very little budgetary support, therefore, one has to be creative.

    Cons

    The company has cut budgets so far that a store manager cannot provide world class customer service or a great atmoshpere for associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ross has gone to far with cutbacks and need to eliminate the constant scorecarded items such as markdowns, sizing, and service,
