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

    Pros

    Coming from my previous employment of over 27 years at another company, I was nervous to join Ross. I had no idea what to expect. Everyone immediately welcomed me and made me feel at home. I can honestly say that all our groups work together in an inclusive way which allows my work to be more efficient. I have been at Ross for close to 2 years and still very happy with my decision to join.

    Cons

    The hiring process can be a little drawn out so be prepared.

    Advice to Management

    Ross has been a very stable company in good and bad times. I account this to Management's ability to gauge the future and make decisions that allow for our progress.

    I have been working at Ross Stores full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great discount 20% all year round with 40% 3 times a year. They also have employee stock purchase program.

    Cons

    to be full time you need to have open availability which is not great if you like set schedules. Store Manager is not always fair on how they schedule the rest of the management team
