  1. It is frustrating to see people be handpicked to move ahead while other people quit because they have been ignored.

    I have been working at Ross Stores part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The only good thing is the discount. The job is aimed at children who still live at home so they can get money off merchandise.

    Cons

    There is currently a constant feeling of 'I'm the next to go' among certain demographics. It is exhausting to go to work for any shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In store management is out of control. If you aren't aware of your rights, they will trample them. Even to the point of breaking the law.

    I have been working at Ross Stores full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with the employees at Ross. The regular employee discounts were 20% while every three months there was a double discount of 40%.

    Cons

    For my education and experience I wish the pay was higher. Management was often short because the store manager traveled a lot which was more work for the other managers. The district manager could have done more to help out with shortages but instead insisted that it was helping payroll. This burns people out and makes the workplace undesirable to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PAYROLL should be used to benefit the employees. After all, there were people who wanted to work more hours but weren't able to because of payroll issues.
