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

    Pros

    decent advancement possibilities
    good on paper the policies and manuals sound great
    non-store mgt seem fair and evenhanded
    the store will hire almost anyone

    Cons

    low pay no hours
    non-store mgt wont respond to concerns of employees in the stores
    bias is rampant in the stores
    very low morale
    not enough payroll to make the stores effective
    you are expected to be available all day everyday, so you cant have a life

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    talk below store mgr without them around; find out about the low morale
    you get what you pay for; minimal wages get you a minimal effort

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO
