    Pros

    It really is a great place to work if you don't get caught up into the negative things that go on you will be fine

    Cons

    To me the management don't really care about their employees all they care about is the money

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your workers . Stop taking them for granted . Think about when you was once where they are now at the bottom of the totem pole

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

    Pros

    some great people, DM was top notch until he left the company. GM caliber is very good across stores, if they are sub-par they WILL NOT make it.
    LP is over emphasized, but effective.
    pace of day is fast so time flies by
    scheduler allows for plentiful front end associates so Mgmt. is kept free to manage or assist in troubled areas of stores.

    Cons

    unrealistic payroll allocations for receiving and processing clothing
    barely employable associates are kept to receiving end of business and everyone suffers, tons of call outs and personal issues daily in almost every store
    bombardment of mdse at times, all of which is time-consuming to process. sweatshop workers wanted!

    Advice to Management

    No matter how good your store looks and improves recovery wise- Dallas-based upper management will blame YOU for all things astray in your store with zero regard to your own personal commitment level and care. If they show up in your building, start job hunting because your time is short. and they are looking to remove DM, GM's, AM's. Payroll constraints choke freight processing to the point of hopelessness.
