Cash Office Associate/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Ashburn, VA – January 23, 2013
I would come in and count the drawers from the previous night. Order money for the week. Count the safe and do deposits. I also did product replenishment and inventory loss prevention. Recovery was done at the end of every night and the store cleaned before anyone could leave. The management was not organized and many times we were short handed due to people calling in and no one coming in to replace them. Co-workers didnt like the job but we loved each other. The most enjoyable was the customer service counter. I got to work with the best we had there and help implement new Operation procedures.
Associate (Former Employee) – 44th and Wadsworth – January 9, 2017
A typical day at work was busy, moving all of the time. I learned many positions in the three years I worked there. My management was great very flexible and understanding. My co-workers were the best so team oriented and down to earth. I think the hard part of the job was the upset customers. The best thing about the job at Ross was getting the meet some of the greatest co-workers and friends to this day.
STOCK CLERK (Former Employee) – Decatur, GA – January 8, 2017
A typical day at work was that every day was different. I learned that Retail can be a creative industry. Management was firm yet flexible. My co-workers made the job a labor of love. The hardest part of the job is putting merchandise back in its proper place on sales floor. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting the public.
Not enough hours to live off of without having another source of income
Inventory Control Specialist (Current Employee) – Moreno Valley, CA – January 8, 2017
This job is okay, as you work your way up it's just like any company depending on perspective sometimes it's worth it. They give you an incentive to work faster for more money, as your work your way up the pay raise it makes it irrelevant.
During "peak season" which is the holidays, income and volunteer work is easy to come by.
But when it slows down thats when it starts to become a burden to many that need to pay their

Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Kahului, HI – January 7, 2017
I had a great experience working for Ross as a seasonal worker. I learned so much things. Such as processing luggage and apparel to pricing the clothes. It taught me to be more organized. My co-workers were all nice and friendly. The management is always willing to help and are very positive. The hardest part of the job was waking up at 3am but its good also because there's so much more time to do things later in the day.
Area Supervisor/stock room lead (Former Employee) – Bridford Parkway, Greensboro – January 7, 2017
The truth is Ross base pay is too high and the ceiling is too low. The expectations of there area supervisors is incredibly overwhelming considering the lack of training management back up and garbage raises. For less than 50 cents of an increase you are met with a over hauled work load and responsibility for a group of people who do not want to work.
Good time off system with sick time and vacation time. Flexible with real life events
Incredibly high expectations with very little feed back be it positive or negative, management structure needs to be fine tuned
Store Protection Specialist (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – January 7, 2017
The management and co-workers made this place worth working at. The customers talk down to you because you work retail but once you're used to that then your days are pretty good. My store is opened from 8:00 am to 12:30 am Monday through Saturday. On Sunday's we're open from 8:30 am to 12:00 am. The store hours made it difficult to have a regular sleep schedule, especially when I was in school. The company does NOT listen to you when you voice your opinion against it. Check the store hours before applying. When there were call ins we wouldn't get out sometimes until 3 or 4 in the morning.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL 60639 – January 6, 2017
