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

    Pros

    Ross continues to grow and sales have been on the rise while I’ve been with the company the last 2 years. Annual bonus is a plus.

    Cons

    Turnover for Management level positions go empty for 6+ months, training in your new role doesn’t exist you either sink or swim, communication is poor between management and employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ross needs to focus on raising employee morale and focus on those that are working hard without managers and turn some attention on how they can grow in their role instead on being placed on hold until someone is hired. Ross is focused on expanding but not looking into keeping current employees happy or challenged.

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

    Pros

    Good introduction to working in retail and you'll gain some practical experience. Some of the employees can be very enjoyable to work with and genuinely helpful.

    Cons

    Management that's inflexible and quick to place blame. Some of the worst customers you can possibly imagine dealing with.. Don't ever expect to be able to plan something more than a few days in advance, your schedule is changed unpredictably if you're not full-time and they make no allowances for personal situations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a little bit more flexible with employee needs and don't be so quick to assume that a situation is automatically the employee's fault.
