    I worked at Ross Stores full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The managerial staff was reasonable with my scheduling needs and although you may have to wait a while, when vacation time begins to accrue it is very helpful. Vacation time rolls over into the next year which allows you to somewhat stockpile

    Cons

    Depending on the manager, some things which seem pretty insignificant are stressed. In some cases people will be held accountable for not memorizing certain pieces of information like shrink trends. The approach to controlling shrink is loose, no apprehensions are made, which was ok with me, but punishing people for not remember ing numbers was annoying

    Advice to Management

    Befriend your co-workers while reminding them that you are the authority, most people are only there to get a check and pay some bills, very few see it as a long term career. If you earn the respect of your employees they will listen and it will make the job a lot easier
