I worked at Ross Stores full-time

Pros

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

Cons

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

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When growing a company. The company needs to maintain control from corporate to store level. If the company loses touch with this. Then the integrity of the company as a whole is effected. Maybe not in the short term but in the long term, the effects can be drastic!

    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 being paid minimum wage to supervise other minimum wage people, that is.

    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 my share of crap jobs, this one is by far the worst. Everyone I worked with got about 4-8 hours per week, sometimes zero. There were a couple favorites among a staff of 40ish that got 35 a week. It's a terrible store with bad merchandise, which , when coupled that I was only there once a week, gave me no reason to be proud of my job whatsoever. That, and they to squeeze blood out of a turnip, and will fault you for moving too much while opening boxes. I don't need that for any amount of money, let alone minimum wage. The managers themselves were okay, but the company culture is very anti-union, anti-employee, anti-benefit, I wish people would boycott places like these.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the micromanagement. Listen to your employees. Don't overhire and give people 4-8 hours per week. Reward those who deserve it. Stop with all the "motivational" chants, give us incentives to work hard.
