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

Pros

Competitive Management salary and bonus, Store managers start with 3 weeks vacation first year

Cons

Has become very micro managed. Workload hours and payroll dollars are not comparable and you are held accountable to hit both, when normally there is a 50-75 hour difference in workload and what you can afford. Lots of promises made to lots of people But external hires are brought in for most DM and above jobs.

Advice to Management

Look at your own math requirements 1+1=2, you can't make it =3

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

    Pros

    Everyone you work with, execs to mailroom, are friendly. The benefits are good, with travel and a discounted stock purchase plan. There's a discount card which I was never able to use.

    Cons

    After 2 years, I was making less than a dollar more than when I started as a temp. No receptionists stay because there is no opportunity for advancement to an administrative assistant position or operations assistant. They hire from outside instead of promoting from within.

    Advice to Management

    Promote people from within. There's no reason to hire two operations assistants instead of giving a chance to any of the receptionist staff a chance at a more interesting job.
