"I’ve worked for Ross for about 10months now and there is absolutely no work life balance. Vacation is limited and only given sparingly. Workload is heavy and stress is worse."

"Ross Stores is a great place to work with talented people in a positive environment. Ross is a large company with a corporate feel. The company has a great reputation among its customers. As an employee, professionalism is displayed in the workplace by all departments. There are moderate opportunities for growth as a professional."

"If you want to work for nothing pay is ridiculous, work is always on overload, always understaffed and then complain that the job does not get done. Ross is all about the beat down, always negative. Management looks out for management. Notice a pattern when it gets close getting employee review magically, you get written up for BS fabricated event (it happened to me). There is no consistency in this entity. One manager does things one way. Go to another store, it's done another way and then you fall into the, that's not the Ross way, and the beat down humiliation starts. Not a good working environment. I gave one star to be able to review but they don't even deserve that. I give them negative 5 stars."

"I thought Ross Dress For Less was great - for a while. At least working there. As a shopper that sparked my interest. I had a pleasant interview and good beginning - training wise. I had issues being the only one working the dressing room. Impossible. I think Ross can be a good place to start or as a first job. It's the easiest POS I've encountered in retail. There IS a huge confusion about scheduling; hours and post-closing recovery, that was not half explained at all. No matter the section, no employee can do it all alone, especially in a busy to swamped store. I missed numerous breaks - not the exclusive either. It is NOT the employee's responsibility to make sure they took their break. One reason being they usually get too busy to even look at the clock. Once I asked an MOD (twice) if I could go on break now. No answer. And I couldn't leave my post. Ross IS a good company but they have a major fault line over loss and shoplifting. Sometimes these thefts are VERY overt. I didn't feel totally secure behind cash registers past a certain hour. And yes, staying open after 2 a.m. CAN be a sore idea. I felt that management needed to swish things up and alternate areas. Because soon enough it all became not doable."

"I worked for Ross for just over a year as an operations manager. Pay was good, but after working there for a year, you couldn't pay me enough to go back. The company is disorganized. Management is unappreciative of employees. Pay for store associates is terrible. Everything is micromanaged because it has to be, since the pay offered to store employees is. Not enough to draw quality people. In the year I was there my store went through 3 managers, and went for over a year without a district manager. There were at least 9 different 'temporary' district managers, all of whom demanded we do things differently, resulting in confusion and inconsistency with processes. Company is process driven and has no respect for its employees. We were instructed to hire 3 times the needed number of employees because it was necessary to stay ahead of the company turnover rate."

"This is a good starter company, I started in 2008 and have been employed with them for five years now. I have moved up to Assistant store manager, and I believe that it is time for me to look for something else in my career field. If you are looking for a retail position, Ross is a good company to start with and move up. You will learn how the retail world works, and especially get the people and management skills that will last throughout your retail career."

"I worked for Ross for 3 1/2 years. The benefits the company offered were good however the leadership structure was impossible. You never knew who to report to. We were given direction from District Mgr., Human Resource Mgr, Loss Prevention Mgr. Regional Manager and no one was ever on the same page. Direction was always different. It was very confusing because Loss Prevention and Human Resources were not Merchandisers and it created constant double work."

"The co-workers are fine people, I get along with pretty much everybody."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"I hear that the day crew is great, but don't go to nightcrew, you'll go insane. Maybe it's just my ROSS, but it is terrible nonetheless"

What don't you like about working at Ross Stores?

"There is a very, VERY big need for proper leadership. The manager is constantly at odds with her main key-holder (I believe that's what they call it), and there's a very big gap in communication, as in, it's non-existent, a lot of presumptions are thrown around with no real decision being made. One of the key-holders, which just so happens to be the one we deal with most of the time, is completely rude. Her attitude and comments to the ENTIRE crew is simply immature and unfounded. She needs a chill pill. There is a constant need for speed, but it's totally illogical. They expect us to finish a truck, process and run all of the merchandise while we don't even have half the people we need. I think they have re-hired, and fire more than a dozen people over a very short window."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Get that lady out of there, because when shes not present everybody does amazingly, but when she is there, all of a sudden, it goes downhill"
