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

    Pros

    Great company to work for! When you have the mindset to move up within the company or your store, it's very possible. It only took me only 1 year of working there that I was able to become a manager/supervisor.

    Your hired as part-time when you start, so there are less scheduale obligations you have.

    They love to promote from within, and the management team works close with you to make sure it happens. Even the coporate managers/leaders, know who are once you've made the steps to move up.

    It's all about support, and they definitely give it you. There is a lot of self reflection/review your expected to fulfill, however it is very helpful to see your own progress and how you're developing and achieving your goals.

    Also, the fact that Ross doesn't descriminate against anyone, you meet amazing peoeple to work with. There stories and backgrounds are just amazing, truly my most favorite coworkers I have met, were from Ross.

    Cons

    Not all managers are the same and there tends to be some obvious favortisim between management and associates. But that's any company.

    Sometimes when your store is understaffed, if our part-time you will work full-time hours, but with out the benefits and pay. Becuase some stores are only allowed any a limited amount of full-time associates, but hours need to be worked.

    Expecatations can be be very high, and if you don't meet them, sometimes they will "coach" you to work a different shift or postion.

    Advice to Management

    Communication can use work.

    I have been working at Ross Stores part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Always work to be done, never down time to be bored and pretend to look busy. They try to train you in multiple areas. You get to meet a lot of people and the coworkers are easy to get along with.

    Cons

    They never make it easy for you to remember the order in which to re rack the clothes in once someone is done trying them on. From what I see everyone has their own system but its complicated and very specific order to remember esp, in the first few weeks of just getting aquainted with the job. Need to implement an easier more apparent way to file the clothes away in so as to teach new fitting room attendants how to get this done faster so that they can keep up with the work flow which can often be busy and hectic and crazy.

    Advice to Management

    Please figure out a way to make filing back the clothes onto the rack in the fitting room after customers try them on easier to remember!! Use more panels, allow us to keep a little chart on the wall taped up while we work.... just so we dont feel stupid and not up to par with the other more experienced workers.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Offers great pay, benefits, and is involved with charity/community.

    Cons

    It would be helpful to have more communication within the departments around the office. Will also be nice for applicants to have better access to follow up on their job applications. Would love to see more company spirit/cheer.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work (:
