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

    Pros

    Generally speaking, Ross is very considerate of employees and employee happiness. Ross has stayed relevant and I feel they are one of the few safe retail B&M stores to work for. They have had much success with their business model. Many opportunities for advancement

    Cons

    typical downsides for retail jobs. Long hours, many weekends, tight payroll, high expectations

    Pros

    Culture, Process Driven, Internal Promotion

    Cons

    Work/Life balance, Internal Promotions salary base

    Advice to Management

    Corporate keeps cutting payroll but expects more results. Typical,for the retail market. There is a lot of room for internal promotion, which is a pro of mine, but often internal promotions are offered the bottom end of the pay scale where as external are often way over paid.
