Cash Office Associate/Customer Service (Former Employee), Ashburn, VA – January 23, 2013
Pros: great breaks
Cons: terrible management
I would come in and count the drawers from the previous night. Order money for the week. Count the safe and do deposits. I also did product replenishment and inventory loss prevention. Recovery was done at the end of every night and the store cleaned before anyone could leave. The management was not organized and many times we were short handed due – more... to people calling in and no one coming in to replace them. Co-workers didnt like the job but we loved each other. The most enjoyable was the customer service counter. I got to work with the best we had there and help implement new Operation procedures. – less
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Orem, UT – July 15, 2014
It can get busy sometimes and have to juggle different tasks at a time. I learned how to work as a team with my co-workers and management. Management listens and helps with problem I may face and teaches me how to do new things when something needs to be done. I think the hardest part of the job is some of the customers can be rude but I have to stay – more... positive and treat them with respect and make sure I can help them with what ever the problem they are having. The most enjoyable part of the job is my co-workers and management because I feel comfortable with the people I work with and from management I get to learn more on how to do more in depth with the store on how to make it better and functional. – less
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Castro Valley, CA – July 15, 2014
Cons: constant store pick-up
I enjoyed working in the retail enviornment and I had a great boss and co-workers. We all helped each other get the work done. I spent most of the time running the fitting room or stocking. I'd say the hardest part of the job was dealing with customers who would come in and make a mess of the store,dealing with theft. My most enjoyable part of the job – more... was working with great people and stocking the shelves. – less

Sales Associate (Seasonal) (Former Employee), Turlock, CA – July 14, 2014
There was always something to do. The co-workers were very friendly and always willing to help. The managers were always encouraging and professional. It was always hard to do an accurate job in the time expected, however.
A very fun place to work as you get to meet and greet new people
Cashier (Former Employee), Delray Beach, FL – July 13, 2014
Pros: discount of clothes etc.
Cons: minimum wage
Ross was very fun place to work. but during holiday season situations can get out of control. Working wit Ross I learned that shoplifters comes in diff shapes, forms and sizes. I learned how to be part of a team, the only concern I had was how the managers would rather sit in the office or break and take too long to assist cashiers when they called – more... for assistance. – less
Retaile (Former Employee), Austin, TX – July 11, 2014
Pros: at the time it was a new experiance for me
Cons: the customers are very rude
A day at work was fun and stressful at the time but in general it was wonderful day. Management was there all the time, provided the customors with all the help they needed. My co-workers were like my second famlily we all worked as a team when one of us was a little behind on cleaning after hours we would all ptch in to help one another once our section – more... was clean and organized. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the customers that were rude and the busy holidays. For me personaly i felt that the official hard part was me working every time someone called off and i wasnt reconized for it nor rewarded. I learn that retail isnt as easy as it seems to be it takes a lot of patients and dedication to maintain the stress levels you may incounter. – less

Area Supervisor (Former Employee), Alameda, CA – July 10, 2014
Pros: the opportunity to advance and earn the experience in management
Cons: rarely got breaks and lunches on time sometimes breaks weren't received.
hardest part of the job was being disrespected and talked down to by the District manager and being an area supervisor that had to do the jobs of the assistant manager and other fellow area supervisors. The most enjoyable part was helping the customers and being on register, executing a fast and efficient scan and bag.Co workers could have been a little – more... more positive. – less
