Management (Former Employee)

I worked at Ross Stores full-time

ProsWork with a diverse group of people and customers depending on demographics.

ConsLow wages, no drug testing, revolving door with mgmt/upper mgmt, no loyalty to quality.

I worked at Ross Stores part-time for less than a year


Pros: It's possible to move up rather quickly. If you don't mind… Cons: Everything else. I worked there for a couple months opening a store in Bolingbrook, IL. I've worked in plenty of retail stores and been through… Advice to Senior Management: Stop the micromanagement. Listen to your employees. Don't overhire and give people 4-8 hours per week.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
