Front End Supervisor (Former Employee), Stapleton, CO – October 2, 2013
Pros: great team of people, extremely professional, fun and friendly environment, great customers
Cons: extemely low pay, terrible hours offered because of corporate
The ross that I worked at was extremely professional and honest. They had strong ethics and they always appreciate all that you do. A day on the job started with friendly smiles and greetings. Starting work was easy because they train very well and always show appreciation when you do a job well done. Management was very attentive and practiced the open door policy 100% without causing conflict. That hardest part of the job, was explaining to customers why they couldn't return certain products and having them become irate. The best part of the day was working with friendly staff and helping friendly customers.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Montebello, CA – August 3, 2015
Pros: 20% discount
Cons: hours sucked
There was usually 1 cashier for a really long line. I got experience since it was my first job. They where not flexible with my schedule, scheduled me very few hours during the week, but where always calling me at night or on the weekends to fill in for others knowing that I needed the hours. Management only cared about getting the job done so they would get a pat on the back by district manager "crazy lady" always mad about something never satisfied.

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PA – July 31, 2015
Pros: Free lunches every friday, 20% discount off anything in the store.
Cons: short breaks.
A typical day at ross is coming in 15 minutes until I clock in, Then I start my day working on my section of that day. I've learned that nothing is handed to you, you have to work for what you want in life (closed mouths don't get fed). The management could have been better it wasn't professional. My coworkers treated me like family they gave off so much positive energy. The hardest part of my job was taking the septa bus sometimes it would go on strike. My most enjoyable moments were meeting new people.
it was fun unloading trucks and processing clothing to be put on the floor that day and it was a strategy job when it came to making sure u make the right moves to complete everything in the stock room in one day. i learned how to time manage a lot better and how to control a larger group of associates. my co workers were a joy to work along side with and the enjoyed me as there manager. the hardest part of the job was not knowing exactly what was coming on truck and was either over payroll or under payroll. the most enjoyable part of this job was the whole job its self.
Retail Associate (Former Employee), Magnolia, TX – July 30, 2015
The store is nice and leaves room for advancement, but the Ross as a company isn't worker friendly. It is the average fast paced environment of a retail store which allows long shifts to go by quickly.
Front End Supervisor (Former Employee), Corpus Christi, TX – July 28, 2015
This by far is the worst place I've ever worked in my entire life. You are overworked and underpaid. The expectations is unbelievable for the amount the pay per hour. There is never enough hours to go around. Management is unprofessional, rude and just mediocre. There is lots of finger pointing and false accusations towards valued workers who work hard to keep the store running. There is lots of favoritism to the point it's sickening. Lots and lots of theft. Security doesn't pay attention cause they are too busy hiding in the dressing room on their cellphones.People are always calling in left in and right so we are always short staffed. Overall it's a horrible place to work and I advise people not to work for any ross store.
Store Protection Specialist/Security (Current Employee), Stockton, CA – July 28, 2015
The job involves standing on your feet for long periods of time and being alert while looking for shoplifters. Ross is unorganized and management could be better. There are not opportunities for advancement
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Douglasville, GA – July 28, 2015
Every shift that i came into start my job all the employees made me feel at home. They would greet me as i was clocking in the start my shift. The head cashier would notify me of what my duties of the day were and I would get started right away. Anything i needed they were usually able to provide that to me.I enjoyed all the my managers they were very helpful and nice. I never really had a hard time at my job i adapted to everything very well.
