Pros: long breaks, college tuition, easy to move up, flexible schedule
Cons: busy during holidays, mean customers
Retail always has it's ups and downs and you definitely experience all of them when working for Ross. I really liked a lot of the people I worked with. I enjoyed all the discounts on merchandise and I really, really like the management at my location. You get a pay raise every year which was nice and you can also work your way up. They also offer rewards and school grants and such which is super cool. They also have 15 minute breaks instead of the legally required 10 minute ones, and you depending on the length of your stay, you ge more breaks which are spread out evenly and really help your shift flow well. Lastly, they're very willing to work with your schedule and also let you get time off.
What I didn't like is the certain type of clientele that would come in yelling at you and demanding this and that, thinking that you're better than you and spitting in your face about the customer always being right. The corporation has strict rules in place on how to handle theft, fraudulent returns and upset, angry and violent customers and sometimes they aren't always the best rules or way to handle something for a certain situation which gets frustrating, but you just have to deal with it.
Other than that, it's actually a good company to work for.
