I have been working at Ross Stores part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

It was a new store so got experience opening a brand new store
Made some cool friends

Cons

New manager didn't exactly run the store in an efficient manner
Hired a bunch of people to open the store and but cut back a lot of the hours and people because they didn't have enough money in their budget
No one could be transferred to a different store
management and supervisors weren't consistent or on the same page with what needed to be done

Advice to Management

Think she bit off more than she could chew

    I worked at Ross Stores full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Career Opportunities
    Resume Building
    20% Discount
    Face Paced

    Cons

    Having a different management style from the store manager can make things tricky.
    All associates have to work at 100% for the business model to work. 80 associates at 100% and 1 associate at 75% and the model fails.

    Advice to Management

    Don't trust store managers. They will lie about associates/supervisors/asms so they aren't held accountable.

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

    Pros

    the only pro was that the salaries are very competitive

    Cons

    There is no work/life balance- they expect you to work late and bring work home every night. Buyers are not trained to be managers and have no idea how to speak to, train and develop those working for them. This was the most hostile and abusive environment I have ever worked in.

    Advice to Management

    You should listen to the assistants and find out what is really going on instead of looking at the bottom line.
