I have been working at Ross Stores full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Within the retail world, this company is growing leaps and bounds. The opportunity for advancement is up to you. The environment in the store if managed right can be team building & fun. The discount and benefits are awesome compared to other retailers. Support from management overall is great. The company is always looking to update and improve the jobs on every level. If you like to be busy, there is always plenty of work to go around. When stores succeed, they are rewarded thru monthly parties, and have employee of the month, which shows a level of appreciation.

Cons

Pay is not very competitive, especially for dedicated, loyal workers. This seems to be the consensus across the board. At times the work is demanding and the company has goals & expectations that are not realistic at the sales floor level, including enough pay to handle tasks and customers (something must be neglected). Some of the stores show severe wear & tear, this makes for a less pleasurable shopping experience. Sometimes the workload and team pressure creates a negative environment and atmosphere.

    I have been working at Ross Stores full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Definite opportunities for advancement, and good pay. Great people down to earthe and authentic in their values.

    Cons

    Very lean business model. Management will be utilized on registers and for physical merchandising.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise to process merchandise at an extended distribution center. This would assist the store by primarily focusing labor on customer service, presentation, and people development.
