Pros

Competitive Management salary and bonus, Store managers start with 3 weeks vacation first year

Cons

Has become very micro managed. Workload hours and payroll dollars are not comparable and you are held accountable to hit both, when normally there is a 50-75 hour difference in workload and what you can afford. Lots of promises made to lots of people But external hires are brought in for most DM and above jobs.

Advice to Management

Look at your own math requirements 1+1=2, you can't make it =3

    Pros

    --Flexible Scheduling --Annual Pay Increases --Associates Generally Enoyable to work with Generally speaking I enjoy working with my assocaites and coworkers, t here are times however where the associate sseem to get bored and have nothing else better to do than to start rumors and drama in which Management in this case is non confrontational and you'll have to make a scene for it to be adressed.

    Cons

    --Monotonous --No Room For Advancement --Poor Pay, New hires limited to part time --Full time is considered a "promotion" --Drama For starters unless you plan on gettign a college degree don't expect to move any further than full time SPS. Area Loss Prevention Manager requires a bachelors degree, and at tat point you're prolly already pursuing something you'll enjoy. The SPS position is essentially the illusion of authority. It is completely against polcy to acuse people of stealing even fi you can verify it with your own two eyes. Your simple there to document nad help mitigate theft without actually making any sort of apprehensions. Probably a good thing since the wage doesn't reflect that, that being said the job itself is for the most part pretty boring. You get paid more than the starting assocaite which is nice, but in order to see full benefits you';; need to be promoted to full time, which is ridiculously rigurous process given the low pay of the position. There are just around 32 hourly assocaites where I work, and of those only 3 are full time. Just something to keep in mind before you go into this.

    Advice to Management

    Consider a training program that may allow for aprehensions of those who are obviously stealing, and of course the training and pay you compensate for this. Also, of your stores are stretched thin, quit being cheap and higher more labor as well as make more room for full time associates. You aren't doing anyone a favor by attempting to keep all labor at part time ot avoid paying health care costs, not even the company itself since there is a constant turn over rate as well as the inabilit yto get shifts covered when people need to call out due to labor constraints. Ross is a huge company, there is ZERO reason why they couldn't afford it.
