At Ross, we value and respect diversity. What matters is how a person performs on the job. That’s why we promote the hiring, acceptance, and appreciation of every individual. Our workplace is one in which personal dignity and respect for the individual is expected in all interactions with our associates and our customers.
At Ross, our focus on social responsibility can be seen throughout the Company, from efforts to increase sustainability in all of our operations, to our commitment to charitable giving and our dedication to creating a work environment where associates can grow and succeed.
At Ross, our culture emphasizes supporting and being part of the communities we operate in. Our signature community program is First Book Foundation, which raises and donates money to purchase books for the kids that need them most. All money raised in the store stays local. Additionally, each new store that opens, dd’s DISCOUNTS donates $1,000 per store to a local Boys and Girls Club.
OPPORTUNITIES AT EVERY LEVEL
A spirit of teamwork and creativity thrives within the Ross organization. That’s because every area is vital to our success.
Located in Pleasanton, CA—in the San Francisco Bay Area—Ross HQ supports the entire Ross network with functions such as finance, IT, HR, store operations, merchandise planning and allocation, and real estate/property development.
Our buying offices in New York and Los Angeles are the source of Ross merchandise. Located in the centers of the retail fashion districts, our buying staff finds bargains and negotiates deals from around the world. But it’s not just buying. Everything from forecasting and strategy development to regional analysis and planning happens here.
Our four state-of-the-art distribution facilities (in Carlisle, PA; Moreno Valley, CA; Perris, CA; and Fort Mill, SC) are the lifeline to Ross stores. From here, every piece of merchandise is received and distributed to our stores nationwide. This requires a diverse team of distribution, transportation and logistics professionals.
Our company relies on our retail associates and management teams to deliver the treasure hunt experience for our customers every day. Each store offers an easy-to-shop environment that showcases our great deals—and keeps customers coming back for more.

I worked at dd's DISCOUNTS part-time (Less than a year)
I loved my coworkers and my manager. Communication was always really good. The schedules were always flexible even when I transitioned into going to school.
I sometimes didn’t like how favoritism was shown
I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at dd's DISCOUNTS (Mesa, AZ) in December 2017.
I applied online. Two days later, they called me and asked if I could come in for an interview the following day. I came in the store about 15 minutes before the scheduled interview and had to wait a few minutes for the hiring manager. The interview took place in the back office. I had a copy of my resume, which she appreciated. She asked me questions about the things on my resume, my education, and experience, as well as asking more questions that she had prepared. She then asked if I had any questions for her, and I asked 3 questions. She told me that I had great questions. At the end of the interview, she asked if I was interested and I said yes. Now I'm just waiting for the background check so I can start working there.
