I have been working at Ross Stores full-time

Pros

Great opportunity for advancement.
Flexible hours.
Fast paced environment.
Great recognition for great people.

Cons

"Do more with less" seems to be a constant trend.
Minimum wage for starting pay. Raises are not the greatest. New associates are only offered part-time hours making it difficult to support a family.
Management bonuses are based on reviews and non-controllables as well as time in position. That means an outstanding manager that helps turn a store around may not get a bonus, whereas an average manager who's only done the bare minimum may simply because he/she has been in position longer.

Advice to Management

Pay and bonuses should reflect productivity not time in grade.
Greater flexibility with payroll would encourage outstanding associates to be more productive, increase moral, and result in a TRUE Customer Experience.

    I have been working at Ross Stores full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Ross is always changing to meet the needs and demands of our customers. This changing environment creates new opportunities for growth and development. Every associate and manager are given tools to grow and change with the company. How far you go is up to you.

    Cons

    Off price retailing is very demanding. Change is the only certainty. As a leader you are challenged to control costs while delivering the standards our customers demand. As an associate you are
    challenged to work quickly and efficiently.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the sacrifices managers and associates make to stay efficient and successful. Listen when managers say you are asking us to do too much with too little. We will rise to challenge and we will work toward our goals. Just know when the goals are too high.
