Current Employee - Store Manager
Current Employee - Store Manager

I have been working at Ross Stores full-time (more than 5 years)

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Ross Stores part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Schedule is very flexible and this is a great part-time job for students. Discount is good if you shop there and colleagues are friendly and work as a team in most cases.

    Cons

    Little pay for the amount of work that you do if on sales floor. Almost zero chances of full-time employment. No medical benefits for part time employees. Store hours are ridiculous in comparison to similar stores. Hard to advance if you're not a favorite.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees on the sales floor are overworked for little pay. At least make it to where there are people just for a specific area and then rotate them weekly. Inform employees about their options to grow in the company. Close the stores once a year to have a company sponsored family fun day for team building.
