    -The work environment was very relaxed

    Cons

    -Terrible managment

    Please listen to your employees when multiple of them are reporting being harassed instead of ignoring it. That would be great thanks.

    I have been working at Ross Stores full-time

    Pros

    This company almost has a family feel to it. There is steady growth of the company which means steady opportunity for employees. I really love the team I work with and the department I am under. The leadership clearly stands out and is exemplary in management and experience.

    Cons

    Ross is a bit of an old school company; for some who wants a company with all the Silicon Valley frills, this probably isn't the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow the culture and venture into new territory that will expand employee experience and capabilities.

    I have been working at Ross Stores part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been with Ross for years now and so long as you do your job to the best of your abilities you'll do fine. They have a program set up to where if you maintain a good standing for a whole year you are subject for a raise.

    Cons

    Though lately, the management staff at my location has been cold and sometimes it feels as if they have their jobs and thus their employees. Being a manager is stressful indeed but hey you signed up for the job, you gotta deal with the stress in a positive manner.
