    I have been working at Ross Stores part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The best reasons to work at Ross are the co-workers. Very diverse. Most of the employees really get along well and work great as a team. OK if you want to work full time or get into management.

    Cons

    Overworked. Very underpaid. The work itself is not bad, your just not compensated for it. If you get offered a higher position beware before you take it. Most of the time it's just more responsibility for you and more hours for the same amount of pay. You get a raise once a year, so most likely you will stay close to minimum wage no matter how long you work there.

    Advice to Management

    Don't share employee info. with other employees. Not good management ethics!

    I worked at Ross Stores full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Multi cultural teams
    Internal promotion opportunities
    Flexible

    Cons

    They once were a great company when I started. But as the years have went by and I have been in many stores the companies thoughts went wrong. It is about making the most money and thus giving us little payroll and giving senior management a huge workload. Unfortunately they have also chosen to higher outside Store Managers who do not have a clue and the managers under end up doing portions of the Store Mangers responsibility. Ross has lost its original appeal and is heading in a terrible direction. Good luck with any HR issues or management issues. No one will listen, they act like it but nothing ever comes from it. Very disappointed. I just recently left the company, trust me when I say there are much better work environments at other retail companies.

    Advice to Management

    Really hold people accountable, be realistic when you come to a store chances are they have spent tons of payroll planning and cleaning up a hot mess. The majority of the Store Managers do not work there 45 hours and many Assistants as well. A lot of favoritism is going on in the stores and a lot more corporate visits and DM visits would really let the staff know corporate cares about them and store condition.
