Pros: associate discounts, also if you find a legit sponsor you can move up and learn pretty quick
Cons: poor compensation, workload, and favoritism.
I tell everyone, understand what you are getting into. As a discount retailer, Ross is just that. Compared to other retailers, they do not compensate their employees to their skills. Also, as with any work place, politics are in play. You may be lucky to have a great store manager & district manager who are engaging and fun to be around that motivate – more... you to do better, or you may be with someone that just wants to move up. I unfortunately experienced that latter. With this, comes integrity issues where things are swept under the rug and you are picked on for attempting to fix the issues. I have been a firsthand witness to cronyism and nepotism.
Understand it is retail, so there is recovery, a lot of it, as well as customer service. – less
