Fast paced workplace
Department Manager (Current Employee), Aurora, ILOctober 8, 2014
Pros: paid days off, promoting from within, eclectic group of associates
Cons: too many discrepancies with training and standards, inexperienced management team
My typical day includes managing associates to complete tasks assigned by the store manager and district manager while making sure that customers are being provided with excellent customer service.

Ross has taught me some skills to manage groups of associates while completing my own tasks. I've learned to better deal with tricky associates that don't – more... always follow rules.

My coworkers are usually young adults that are working at Ross for extra income around their full time job or while going to school. The management team is usually a young group. Some have years of retail experience while others are very new to retail and have been promoted quickly.

The hardest part of my job is getting to know the REAL expectations. I have worked in three stores and helped at three others. I have found that there are many differences between stores regarding the rules. It becomes very confusing. Ross likes to promote from within. This is good but I have seen managers that have been promoted too quickly out of desperation. They are not properly trained and it makes it hard on other manager and the staff. This also ties back in with there not always being consistency between stores and leaders.

I do enjoy working with the staff. It is an eclectic group of associates that have all taught me something different. Though it has its flaws, I do like that Ross promotes from with in. I started as an associates and someone spent the time to train me and get me ready for a leadership role. I wish that all associates had the same trainer as me. I also appreciate all the extra perks of the job like getting a paid day off for my birthday and anniversaries with the company. . – less

Retail Associate (Current Employee), Durham, NCOctober 8, 2014
Pros: discounts for employees and their spouse
Cons: no benefits
Typical day starts off slow then we hit rush hours and everything is in fast forward mode. I learned that customers like employees who are talkative and let them know that they come first. Management is very productive and friendly to be around. My co-workers are all friendly and easy to get along with. The hardest part of my job would be learning to – more... keep a conversation with the customers while ringing up their items. The most enjoyable part would be learning new tasks and getting complimented when I do it right! – less

Front End Supervisor (Former Employee), Front End SupervisorOctober 7, 2014
Pros: medical benefits
Cons: ever changing management
My job duties included preparing the customer service booth for business by stocking it with supplies. I actively directed associates to specific duties or locations in the store as i thought fit according to company policies and standards. Other than that i helped customers with their purchases and returns of merchandises. What i learned during my – more... time at Ross was how to help customers in most aspects of the Retail world. My co-workers were fun to work with and always willing to follow guidelines set by me or my manager. The hardest part of the job was to develop the skills required to ace that job but with time it because relatively simple and easy. – less

Fitting Room Associate (Former Employee), Tampa, FLOctober 6, 2014
I worked part- time and loved working for Ross, I only left because I moved to Spokane Wa. The managers are nice and easy to approach with concerns, all of my co- workers were hard working and dedicated to doing an excellent job. The hardest part of the job was not taking it personal if you I had an angry customer. The most enjoyable was working with – more... management and my co- workers. – less

Sales Associate / Stocker (Former Employee), Orange City, FLOctober 4, 2014
The most one could expect is a few hours a week from 12-21 at the most. At minimum wage, it isn't necessarily a good wage to live off of.

Great place to work as most of the associates are awesome to work with and the merchandise offered is great but offered at a discounted price.
Retail Associate (Current Employee), Missoula, MTOctober 2, 2014
Pros: great prices, awesome employee discount, fast paced, personal recognition
Cons: fortune 500 corporation but they walk on the workers to get there.
There is always something to do which is why I applied for a job. Associates get a great discount and it is doubled 3 time per year. The hardest part of the job would be two-fold. First there is often little to no training in certain areas and second the "company" makes changes that negatively affect the associates with out asking for feedback.
