      Pros

      Earning opportunity is great. A person willing to earn finds lots of opportunity to earn. The manager are very efficient and impartial. Respect and safety of employees were always concern for the company. Lots of scope to hone skills in all the departments if one is willing. Leaders always explains thoroughly whenever asked to help.

      Cons

      Almost none as much as I can remember. The thefts were alarming. Sometimes threatening because impact of theft on company profit may end in loss of hours and even jobs for associates.

      Politics, posturing and male identity will get you ahead

      Pros

      A great company that continues to grow and thrives in economically challenging conditions. If you want to have job security without the need for advancement, this is definitely the company you should work for. From the stock market crash to the pandemic, this company continues to grow and be successful without experiencing closures or lay-offs.

      Cons

      If you do not play the corporate "game" and strategically position yourself to manipulate and "CYA", your chances of getting ahead are nil. During the interview process, the interviewers paint a beautiful picture of how great it is to work there. You quickly find out how damaged and toxic the environment really is especially if you're not able to be a part of the "boys" club or into playing the political game. Very top heavy with too many "leaders" and not enough associates to support the business.

      Not the retail environment for me.

      Pros

      You get an employee discount of course. This particular location had fairly good and kind managers.

      Cons

      I didn’t really like the store operating model. Ross is all about being cheap so there was pretty much 0 visual merchandising. There are so many sensors on items that being cashier was a pain. Plus they get on to you about your speed at cashier so you basically have to throw things in the bags with no folding. I was used to working at a place where you could take time with customers. This was just task after task constantly.

      Pros

      The time I worked at Ross I was moved up from a sales associate to front end supervisor & cash office supervisor within a month. This was my first job & I admired the managers who really looked into their associates who have the potential to help the company and also ways to help others be better.

      Cons

      Cut hours after Christmas hit hard. Some associates went from working 5+ hours almost everyday to only working 4 hours almost once or twice a week. From the time i was hired till after Christmas I worked at least 40 hours sometimes a little more but after Christmas I was only scheduled 4 hours for only 2 sometimes only one day of the week.

      Pros

      It’s a very, very easy job (also boring beyond words). They always give you your minimum hours if you’re a full time employee; they do honor PTO after you’ve worked there long enough, do offer *decent health benefits.

      Cons

      Interpersonal workplace drama made the whole experience unsavory. (That’s in general for Ross retail stores). In regards to working in Loss Prevention: at Ross, you are essentially treated as a glorified “door greeter”. As I actually have an education in Criminal Justice (along with a moral compass), I found this job to be impossible. Without being able to leave the front door area of the store without being berated, or actually take any measures to PREVENT theft, this is a case where the job description does not match its reality. If you want to pace back and forth for 8 hours and watch people steal while being able to do nothing about it, this is the job for you.
