Warehouse SRL/ Area Supervisor (Former Employee), Marsha Sharp FWY and Milwaulkee – December 10, 2013
Pros: good pay
Cons: turn over rate was awful.
very busy day everyday Learned to be patient and do what I could do the best I could do with the amount of people who wanted to show up for work There was always a manager leaving or being asked to leave without any back up. I and another supervisor took alot of overtime for the lack of management. Getting people to show up for work I loved staying – more... busy, The hiring was very fun. – less

Pros: had a job to by presents for chrismas
Cons: after season was over spent 2/3 of my paychecks just to get to work
was to repetative and when it came to doing our jobs managment just had us get it done quick and not properly. "just make it look good don't worry about doing right" was something i was constintly told.
SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee), Harvey, LA – November 23, 2014
Cons: managment, pay
This particular Ross location has very poor management and a strong lack of leadership. A typical day at work was chaotic. Customers never seemed to be checked out in a timely fashion. The managers displayed strong favoritism to certain associates. The store manager is very arrogant and nonchalant as well as the assistant store manger. Many associates – more... never receive their breaks or lunches in a timely manner. I even went shifts without taking a break or lunch, because they were so "busy" in the front. The discount really didn't make working at Ross worth the madness that this location put me through. As a part-time associate at this location, you are not even guaranteed 15 hours a week. You do so much, for no sincere thank you and for so little pay. – less

Front End Supervisor, Cashier (Former Employee), Santa Rosa, CA – November 20, 2014
Pros: great discount, location, and to local shops
Cons: discounted healthcare, working black friday, and numerous( main) superviors
I started as a cashier when I started working there. Under new management, and within a few months I became a Front End Supervisor. And once I became a supervisor, I was disrespected. Most of the supervisors I knew would leave me in charge to do their job while they dealt with office tasks. While working there, the company went through several managers – more... and district managers in several months. It was hard to keep track of everyone's names. – less
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Vista, CA – November 19, 2014
I worked at Ross during a transition time in my life, knowing it would be a temporary job. I was surprised how associate centered the company was. It was always a great environment to be a part of however, it is retail so that says enough.
Sales associate/Costumer Service (Current Employee), Atlanta, Ga – November 17, 2014
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: not many advancement positions
Ross is great place to work if you are a college student. They can be flexible on availability change. They recognize hard work and great employees. It's just another retail job really. The only advancement are manger positions. On top of that they still aren't that great. Great place to work, but not for a short time.
Front End Supervisor (Current Employee), Dallas, Tx – November 17, 2014
Pros: double discount day
Cons: unpredictable schedule
One of the best parts of working in Retail are the customers! Every day is someone new and something new to learn. Being up front means that you are the face of the company. My day starts with reading the closing teams notes and remarks. My tasks depend on what shift I am working that day.
Sales Associate (Current Employee), High Point, NC – November 16, 2014
Pros: management, long hours
Cons: low pay, slow advancement
I love my job here at Ross for the most part, It has great management, and coworkers, I'm very flexible with them and they love me for that. But, I am only part-time and is in need of a full-time position in order to move up in life, of which Ross isn't currently offering right now. However, I would say this is a good part-time, minimum wage job and – more... is good for those who's just starting to work! – less
Cash Office\Cashier (Current Employee), Oldsmar, FL – November 14, 2014
On a regular day I go into work before the store opens to do my cash office duties. After that I speak with my manager to get assigned a job for the rest of the day such as cashier or ticketing clothes. All of my co-workers are great and fun to work with.
Sales Associate (Temporary) (Former Employee), Pasadena, CA – November 14, 2014
Pros: customer/employee interactions
Cons: untimely breaks, poor management
Working at Ross was personally rewarding. I enjoyed the customers and the overall job was easy for me and I caught on quickly. Co-workers were helpful. They helped me more than management/supervisors did. I understand that some tasks are self explanatory but they didn't train well what so ever, and when they do their so called minute reviews they mark – more... you off on things you were not trained on. The store was poorly staffed and remained junky through out the day. Lines were ridiculously long and they want to blame the two cashiers for not moving fast enough. – less
