Featured Review

Former Employee - Staff Accountant II

I worked at OfficeMax full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Loved the company and workload

Cons

Merger was a disaster

Current Employee - Associate Analyst

I have been working at Ross Stores full-time for less than a year

Pros

Coming from a retail background, having a corporate job means having more balance between life & work. Everyone is very professional and they all want you to succeed in your role. Training... doesn't stop in just a couple of weeks, they continue to train you and you continue to learn even after your 90 days. Gym access on campus is also a wonderful addition, you literally will not have an excuse to skip the gym after work. The Ross Cafe is also very convenient & Ross employees get 15% off. Employee discounts during double discount days is an amazing thing. Lastly, the room for growth and career progression is absolutely up to you and how far you want to go. If you explain that to your manager, she will help you get there.

Cons

Nothing so far! I pretty much enjoy working here, I'm constantly being challenged and work is never stagnant, you're always being pushed to your fullest potential and if you don't like that, then... this place isn't for you.
