    Former Employee - Stockroom Associate in Los Angeles, CA

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

    Pros

    Job was simple, easy to learn, and required little to no previous skills. Great for a starter job for a teenager. General friendly environment between fellow employees.

    Cons

    Pay was always at minimum wage. Managers would nickle and dime you by pressuring you to work faster, clock in later, clock out earlier. Hour scheduling was very rough as it depended on the influx of stock, you never knew how long you were gonna work when you came in for the day, so you may only stay a few hours, or you could get a full shift. Would not recommend doing it as a career, as you'll get carpal tunnel with the repetitive movements.

  5. "Not a bad place to work at but not the best"

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

    Pros

    The money was okay, got paid a dollar over minimum wage.

    Cons

    They did not train me properly and punished me for it. There were many things i didn’t know but got yelled at anyway. Expect that. The company has many holes. Takes advantage of their workers. Management is terrible they do no train correctly.
