    I worked at Ross Stores full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The culture at Ross is unlike any I have experienced before. Every person is made to feel appreciated, everybody matters and people are incredibly warm and welcoming.

    Cons

    Too many working weekends that take away family time.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for fostering an amazing culture where the little people matter as much as those on top.

    Pros

    Welcoming and positive attitude, room to grow, they make sure you’re prepared for everything. They emphasis on growing your career within the company.

    Cons

    As an allocator, you work an occasional day on the weekend. It’s not bad, you still get time and a half.

    Pros

    Ross is a great store with everything you need for home children/family in one place. I like the idea of some good items as well.

    Cons

    I believe it should be a bigger store. Many people shop at Ross and it such a large variety of stuff to choose from you can be in there store for a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Make a bigger store with more registers opened.

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

    Pros

    Lots of perks: endless career growth opportunities, Pete's Coffee on site, great gym, 20% discounts year-round and 40% discounts 3 times a year that coincide with new stores opening. It's not stressful work, and the corporate culture is pretty average with a good work/life balance. Typical benefits package, but you also get an annual 8% bonus based on the company's performance, which is always good!

    Cons

    They hire you on at lower-than-average pay, but will increase your salary as you stay faithfully employed. This can result in entry-level associates leaving for higher paying jobs shortly after being hired (= high turn-over). Several layers of middle-management also make your job difficult sometimes, as each of them want a say in your work and their disagreements/lack of communication amongst each other can make your job unnecessarily more challenging and difficult at times. A few Managers hoard critical information until the last minute on projects, which can cause unfair last-minute fire drills for their employees/team.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good corporate culture and work/life balance! Communicate with your team, give them the tools they need to get their job done, empower them and then trust them to roll with their business/projects!
