    Pros

    Really i dont see anything good. This is a slave labor mentality. Very rude manager

    When your schedule saus your off at 10 you normally stay till 11 to clean store. They make you feel like its a punishment.

    Put a smile on your face. Treat others with respect.

    Pros

    Ross Inc. has great customer focus. Love that Ross, inc. encourages promotions from within.

    Cons

    Salaries for internal promotions should be just as competitive as external recruits. New hires should be given 90 days before they are considered "turnover".

    Advice to Management

    Stay on program

    I have been working at dd's DISCOUNTS full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great deals if and when in stock. 20% employee discount is beneficial with higher priced items and reduced price items.

    Cons

    Full time hours per week is 37.50. Every aspect of the store, from processing freight, to merchandising freight to POS is RUSHED never allowing developing customer relationships, and for proper merchandising and thus attempting to currently merchandise freight to make a visual impact. Insufficient staffing(sales floor to stockroom) due to constantly controlling payroll makes it difficult to complete daily Area Supervisor tasks. In addition, the insufficient staffing, overwhelms the staff who can't complete tasks before being constantly redirected to another task. The employees hired aren't very professional nor socially well polished.

    I worked at dd's DISCOUNTS part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The discounts were generous, especially the double discount days. They are generally willing to hire first time workers and they give good hours if you are open to them. Coworkers were great but the nature of the job attracted very irresponsible and lazy people.

    Cons

    Turnover was crazy high and management was a mess, I went through 4 managers in the year that I worked there. They do not promote in-store and constantly over worked employees and tried to give them more responsibility with no raises or better pay. Beware veteran workers, don't bother with this company.

    Advice to Management

    Actually show that you appreciate your employees so that they stay by giving raises and promotions to garner loyalty.
