    I have been working at Ross Stores full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working at Ross is simple and easy. Anyone can find their fit here either working on the sales floor or back in the stock room. Management has a focus on helping associates thrive and feel comfortable in the workplace. Promotions are easy to come by too, so especially in places transitioning into paying living wages as the minimum wage a full-time position here can be pretty nice and easily gotten.

    Cons

    Though it is easy to get promotions, the raises that come along with them are rather insignificant. Also, I have seen that giving customer service can be stressful for those workers with social anxiety. While there certainly will be less customer interaction for stockroom workers, some interaction is inevitable.

    Advice to Management

    Rally topics are an excellent method of continued education for associates, however I think a different method would be useful for continued education on more complex topics for members of management and other key carriers. Management has a lot to pay attention to, so I think it would be wonderful to help them stay relevant on company policy some way.

    I worked at Ross Stores part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Minimum wage is $9 an hour, overtime pay if working on major holidays. Great job for anyone to get their foot in the door for experience.

    Cons

    They never have shifts, meaning if you were scheduled for am shift they would call and tell you not to come and then call later in the evening for you to work. If you are helping a customer, a manager will come up and tell you to get back to work. Only have 1 person working all departments and registers so the store stays a mess.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your staff and customers as if you want them to come back.

    I worked at Ross Stores for less than a year

    Pros

    The people you work with

    Cons

    The pay. You will never get a raise unless minimum wage goes up. The most the will ever give you is a 25 cents

    Advice to Management

    This company makes so much money stop being cheap
