I worked at Ross Stores full-time for more than a year

Pros

Career Opportunities
Resume Building
20% Discount
Face Paced

Cons

Having a different management style from the store manager can make things tricky.
All associates have to work at 100% for the business model to work. 80 associates at 100% and 1 associate at 75% and the model fails.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't trust store managers. They will lie about associates/supervisors/asms so they aren't held accountable.

    Pros

    Discounts, fast paced, friendly coworkers, can move up if you work for it. Flexible work hours if you have the crew.

    Cons

    Depends on the associates and managers to make it a good place to work. hours can get screwy if the wrong person is doing the schedule

    I have been working at Ross Stores part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Friendly and helpful co-workers (and most managers)
    -Enjoy being a cashier
    -They keep us up to date with daily "rally meetings"
    -Employee discount (on already cheap prices)
    -Being the first to see all the new inventory and choose from it
    -Birthday celebrations
    -30 day accident-free celebrations
    -Required 15 minute break for a 4 hour shift

    Cons

    -Minimum wage
    -Never-ending work, work, work
    -Large sections assigned to single person, and it's hard to do your section well if you're constantly being called up the front as a cashier
    -Customers make the biggest messes right after you've JUST thoroughly cleaned and organized everything
    -Miscommunication between management leads to some associates getting yelled at
    -Not enough recognition for new employees
    -16 hrs a week = Four 4-hr shifts = Lots of wasted money on gas....would prefer just TWO days of 8 hours each
    -Store manager is often disrespectful

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please recognize that we work hard and deserve more than minimum wage. Hire respectful store managers who know how to communicate.
