The workplace is very busy and you are always on your feet. I have learned so much from this company especially my customer service skills. I have always loved working here.

Busy, Busy, Busy....it was never a dull moment in Wal-Mart. It was good and bad management there, I can honestly say, but I hung in there. Co-workers, ummmmm, didn't really do to much talking at Wal-Mart, Just went to work and did my job.
SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee), Richmond, Virginia – September 15, 2014
A typical work day at Ross was mostly customer service sales and returns.
I learned how to handle objections from customers as well as well how to communicate with upper management in order to advance your career in sales to become a manger.
My co-workers were fun, friendly and competitive. The hardest part of that job was that it the first Ross in – more... our area and it was extremely fast paced with constant lines. I was able to complete sales and returns effectively and efficiently most of the time.
The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting people and ability to use the discounts for my purchases. – less

ASM (Current Employee), Texas – September 12, 2014
Pros: employee discount, flexible hours for part-time assoicates.
Cons: as with any retail job, the hours aren't exactly family friendly. if one were single, that would be a different story.
There really is no "typical" day at work. It's always high-energy and fast-paced. When the right support and training is given, the processes in every aspect of the store ultimately give the customer a fast and efficient shopping experience.
