    I worked at Ross Stores full-time

    Pros

    Ross is a wonderful company. I started working at Ross directly out of high school and worked there while I completed my bachelors degree in mathematics. They worked around my school hours and they even have stock options for employee's or at least they did when I was working there. Lots of pizza parties and rewards for hard workers, and you can definitely pick up more hours if you need them.

    Cons

    A lot of recovery, which is Ross lingo for cleaning up stores. Also you have a lot of thieves come into Ross.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
