    Pros

    I absolutely enjoyed my internship experience! The internship program is very well organized and they really do take care of their interns. In the short 10 weeks, I can confidently say that the internship experience prepared me for what it means to be a retail leader and manage a multi-million dollar store. I gained a better insight into managing an entire store of staff and merchandise, theft prevention, HR, hiring and onboarding, product placement and other related topics. Overall, great experience.

    Cons

    The only con is that you might work with and management unprofessional or unmotivated staff members. This can at times feel like babysitting. Other than that, I would say the experience was pretty great.

    Pros

    Employees were enjoyable to work with. Job was fast paced and costumer relations were my favorite part of the job.

    Cons

    Management was tough. Expectations were high for part time job with no benefits. Open availability was preferred and schedule changes were difficult to negotiate.

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

    Pros

    Great pay versus the rest of the industry in both salary and bonus pay. Half day Fridays during the summer months. Able to wear jeans on Mondays and Fridays. The company as a whole is growing, so there is opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    Stressful and challenging work environment. Most associates work 9-10 hours a day, sometime areas work more. There is way too much management, and not enough assistants/associate to actually do the work needed to grow the business. Location of the office is not in a nice area of downtown.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more support to implement all of the work that needs to get done.
