Pros: Fast-paced, easy to pick up
Cons: Time spent at company was too brief, and there was a distinct lack of warmth from some of the employees
The best part about working for Ross was the work was fast paced to keep me motivated and kept me on my toes, for as long as it lasted. Often the days I worked were cut short and they could not afford to keep me on for five hours at a time. It reached a point eventually where they stopped putting me on the schedule for three to four weeks at a time, possibly more, and for someone who was trying to establish roots in the work environment in California, it was very disappointing and discouraging for me as an employee. I sometimes did not feel like a member of a team or a family as I felt at Walmart, and I did not feel like I was all that appreciated. If I was, it was not shown. The lack of consistency in organization at Ross drove my brain to distraction, but perhaps I was more used to the more rigid organization of Walmart, and perhaps it was not Ross' fault. This would be a good starter experience for someone who wants a light retail experience, as long as you don't expect too much. This is my personal experience there, and may not reflect the opinions of others.
