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 – more... 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. – less

Cash Office Assistant/Front End Supervisor (Former Employee), Chesapeake, VA – December 2, 2013
Ross was a very busy place on a daily bases because of the discount prices.I learned how to supervise and run front line. My co-workers enjoyed working with me usually because they would say I was a hard worker.The hardest part of the job is Christmas time when shoppers wreck the store. The modst enjoyable part was the discount.
Retail Associate/Cashier (Current Employee), East Wenatchee, WA – December 1, 2013
Pros: great employee beniftsand 20 percent off
Cons: poor management
I had no employees problems with other co workers. The biggest issue is with Ross and the scheduling. I was extremely flexible. I always was taking up other people shift and most of the time it was last minute notice. The problem was that management would call you in 2 hours and need to rush to get there. I learned on if i ever became a manager what – more... not to do on the managing of short notices. I learned a lot of different things and much about retail as whole. – less
Associate (Former Employee), Perris, CA – December 1, 2013
4 hours periods of standing with a 20 min break between I learned how to perform more efficiently without compromising the quality of my work. The mangers communicated well with the employees, but where absent with no replacement some days. Communication with co-workers was limited because of language barriers but still found ways to assist each other – more... when needed. The hardest part of working at Ross was the cramp work space and long durations of standing/ The most enjoyable part of working at Ross was being able to learn techniques from co-workers to improve the quality of my work . – less

Sales Associate/Front End Supervisor (Former Employee), Orlando, FL – November 27, 2013
Pros: easy, fast paced, busy, enjoyable environment
Cons: closing shifts, short shifts, little hours
Going into work was always the best. All the associates and managers I had were always so full of energy and high spirits. I learned how to organize the clothes and size them making sure they were all were they were supposed to be. I would run the cash register and help customers with returns/exchanges. I made sure the front end of the store was neatly – more... taken care of and clean. Saturday and Sundays I would work in the cash office making sure each register has enough money/change. Hardest part of the job was probably the closing shifts because you have to make sure the store looks PERFECT for the next day. The thing I enjoyed the most about this job though was that each day I went in, I didn't feel like it was a chore to be there. It was a nice environment to be in. – less
Sales Associate (Current Employee), El Cajon, CA – November 26, 2013
Pros: managers work very hard
Cons: pay, incentives
Managers & co workers aRe great. Pay, raises, & customers are terrible. If you work in a Ross store in San Diego, la, etc the store is going to look like a tornado hit by the middle of the day. Seriously! Only like five people work at a time & they work you like slaves if your a closer or late cashier. No time for breaks & barely enough people to cover – more... them. Line stays long because you only have like three cashiers in total. – less
Fun place....managers listen and reconize you every day.

I love working here....I mostly work in the fitting room...giving me the opportunity to meet lots of different people....just giving them a friendly hello seems to make their day....my day consist of making sure toys and lingerie are in the right places and that the fitting room is clean and clear.

Operations Manager (Former Employee), Santa Ana, CA – November 22, 2013
Pros: people you work with
Cons: a lot of turnover
Great people to work with, although a little bit hectic. I did schedules and made sure any company directions were executed in the store level. Budgeting and sales forecasting was also part of the job. The best part of the job is developing associates to get ready for their assessments and get them promoted to the next level of management.
My review of Ross is never a dull moment. I am always working, either making sure my department is nice and organized and doing projects in my department. The management is great. I get along very well with all of my managers and supervisors. Since working at Ross I have not found anything hard it the job and what I enjoy about my job is working with – more... customers. – less
I pretty much do everything in that store the only thing they lack is on is raises my raises are once a year and they usually are like 20 cents. The management is really good i've been there for over 2 years and the 3 managers that have been there have been great. The hardest part of the job is cashering because time passing by really slow and your – more... feet get really tired really fast. – less
