Cashier (Current Employee), Palm Springs, FL – January 29, 2014
Pros: you learn to multitask quickly. customers get fast service.
Cons: your assignments switch frequently with no warning. it is a thankless job.
My skills far exceed working in the several positions I do in ROSS, Inc. After caring for my elderly father for a year full time, getting back into the workforce was stressful & discouraging. ROSS was available. I am trying to get back my dignity in working in a permanent position with a rewarding company. Although, since I have been working for ROSS – more... for two years now, I can say, getting this job was a relief, since it took so long to get it. The job market has been challenging. I wish to be an essential part with an organization that needs me as much as I need them. – less

Retail Associate (Former Employee), Kahului, HI – January 29, 2014
Pros: managers are awesome and so are the employees
Cons: pay and hours
Loved working with everybody. Everybody gets along it feels like we could be great friends. Managers are nice and make you feel welcomed all the time. Hours can be flexible. Miss working there ALOT. Pay could be better due to how busy it could be. More workers would be great but it sucks because if they hire more people that means less hours for the – more... part time people. Sometimes its hard to deal with rude customers but its alright we always seem to solve it. I just hatedwhen they yell and swear at you. – less
Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee), Portland, OR – January 28, 2014
Pros: people, co-workers
Cons: upper management, new policies updating, training
I had an extremely hardworking team at my store. I enjoyed working with my direct boss and co-workers. Fast pace with barely enough payroll to work with. Upper management needs to provide support and treat all stores the same. Upper management favoritism is hard to avoid in the retail environment. Too many changes in a short time and piling on more – more... work for the SM and ASM managers. – less
working at Ross helped me to gain an experience in the work force. when working at Ross, I made sure I was ready to work and on time everyday. Working at Ross got really busy many times but I always weather the storm.I made sure my duties where done to perfection. I always had smiles on my customers faces and treated them with the respect that they – more... deserve. I did everything in Ross, for example, Cashier, Markdown, fitting and stockroom. There where many times I received employee of the month. The employee where great to work with and the management where a great part of our success. – less
Store Manager (Former Employee), Mid-Atlantic – January 27, 2014
Pros: store staff were helpful and kind
Cons: upper management was disrespectful and condescending.
This store was torn up by the customers daily and there was not enough payroll to keep associates cleaning up all day. Had to stay late at night to put the store back together. There were never enough cashiers regardless how you leveraged payroll and the customers were always irate. D.M. screaming about payroll and had no regard for customers. Saw the – more... D.M. lie to upper management because she was so stressed. So many managers were promised potential promotions if they work harder but they never saw these come to fruition. – less
Sales Associate (Former Employee), High Point, NC – January 25, 2014
Pros: long breaks
Cons: no cons
A typical day at Ross is very crazy because there is a lot going on I had to do shipment some days then I might be on cash register or fitting rooms the next day when I don shipment I had a time limit then I had to put the clothes out on the floor. The most hardest thing I would say is the time limit to do shipment because it would be a lot of clothes – more... but so little time and the most enjoyable would have to be the fitting rooms because you would be able to help customers one on one find clothes and give your opinion if they ask for it. – less
Great co-workers...they are the best in the industry!
Planner (Former Employee), NY office – January 23, 2014
Pros: financially stable company; summer fridays
Cons: systems are poor; job is very task-orientated
The co-workers are the best part of working at Ross. The job tends to be very task-orientated and it is a merchant-driven company. The planning pyramid is a support role unlike other places I have worked. The company needs to do more philanthropic events in the community. Summer Fridays are a plus!
