    I worked at Ross Stores part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -you get paid...that's pretty much the long and short of it.

    Cons

    - terrible work environment. Always unclean and understaffed. Never enough people and never enough coverage. As a result, you're forced to stay (on average) an hour after your shift. It is impossible to get off even close to on time and they don't respect the fact that you have a life outside of the workplace.
    -management micromanages you to an extreme degree. I don't need you watching every single step i take...if you feel like you're being watched, you probably are. They watch you more than they watch for potential thieves or shiesty customers
    - there is ZERO training. I mean, 0. If you mess up, you will be interrogated by a manager whether you've been trained to do the right thing or not.
    -if you work the closing shift, you're expected to stock the floor. Closing shift gets off on average an hour and a half after the store closes.
    -If you work the fitting room, they are anal about rack organization and you have to clean the racks by the end of your shift, and put away go backs. You also are responsible for shoes and toys and kids and mens basics. All that, AND you have to work the fitting room.
    - the pay is laughably low. It's minimum wage and they will work you like a dog for it.
    - management treats you like a common criminal and an idiot. So much micro management and procedural stuff that you do here that doesnt exist anywhere else. You can get fired for not bagging each item individually once you ring it, because the camera (they watch your every move) may think you're stealing....okay. The company is anti benefit and anti union, and the way they convey that to the associates is by insulting your intelligence completely. they try to convince you that it's not in your best interest
    - if you're part time, you will be working all of your open availability. Literally all of it.
    - the job you get hired for is not the job you do. Know that you may be in the stock room today and working the cash register tomorrow. Of course, you won't be trained and then blamed if something goes wrong.
    - No one stocks the registers with supplies, so you are always running out. So customers have to wait as you steal bags from another register or tell them you need to get wrapping paper.
    - Customers are extremely disrespectful to you and the merchandise.
    - The managers sit in the back and never come out of their office. They complain about everything imaginable, but usually don't get up to help or cover a section.
    - I recommend this job to someone who has no other options and seriously needs $$. I'm talking, you don't speak english or you need money ASAP. Otherwise, do not go anywhere near here. I just quit today and I feel so good!

    Advice to Management

    respect your workers, acknowledge positive outcomes, and hire more coverage. Advice to corporate: stop insulting the intelligence of your workers. I see this company as a boycott waiting to happen, because the mistreatment of employees is rampant. I recommend better benefits, a hourly salary increase and more flexibility with hours and coverage.

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

    Pros

    very family oriented, understand the baby/family bonding, easy work sch. nothing crazy like high tech companies, very stable, generous bonus plan for managers and above

    Cons

    see the off-price attitude in the company technology and processes, many manual work-around, still in old system of operation, things change in slow pace
