    I worked at Ross Stores full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Ummm, well there is... No, but there is.... Oh wait. Run!

    Cons

    Working off clock. Demands. No team to get stuff done. Corp unrealistic.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue and give the team payroll to get your jobs done. You over work your managers and unwilling to give them tools to get their job done. Corporate greed will ruin this company.

    Pros

    Fast paced, good employee benefits, decent pay

    Cons

    Force you to move up or lose your job. Bullying. No payroll. Customers are rude or always want a discount. Long lines because of no payroll

    Advice to Management

    Have more payroll for management to actually place cashiers at the register so customers wont complain. Have your employees backs every now and then. Give your employees time to rest instead of closing the night before and opening the next day.
