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

    Pros

    It's great to work every day with talented, smart, driven, helpful, accountable coworkers and leaders! Culture is positive, and consistent with the brand. Company performance is strong due to a solid business strategy. Leaders are truly developmentally focused with their team members, providing actionable timely feedback, which I appreciate. Ultimately, it is a great cultural fit for me.

    Cons

    The hiring process can take a while, so be prepared. But the team kept me informed throughout the process, and in the end, it was definitely worth the wait.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the rock solid focus on executing the business strategy.

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

    Pros

    - There are tons of opportunities for development at this company
    - We are continuing to expand while others are closing down
    - The discount is nice as well!

    Cons

    - The job will be as hard or as easy as you make it. You have to put the work in and also understand that this is not a job where managers just stand there and observe. You have to be willing to work side by side with your team so they can learn.

    I have been working at Ross Stores part-time

    Pros

    Had my first day today. Nothing too hard, pay is weekly which is one of the reasons I stuck with this job.

    Cons

    You can only access your work schedule on the store computers. Your profile is on a website called peopleworks.com and when you try to logon it doesn't recognize you.

    Congrats on the new job! Weekly pay is only one of the many perks you'll get to enjoy while working with us. Ask your manager about our merch discount and college assistance programs!
