Empowering Our Associates
Our associates are our Company’s greatest asset. Their commitment to providing great bargains for our customers is what makes Ross successful. Fostering a positive work environment is a priority and includes:
- Training and development programs
Training and Development
All of Ross’ training and development programs share the goal of fostering a culture that empowers associates to do their best and realize their full potential.
Computer-based training centers in our stores offer custom training courses that complement the personal training and individual development plans that begin the first day an associate comes to work with us.
At our distribution centers, our Bonus Plan gives full-time, hourly and temporary workers alike a chance to increase their earnings by meeting higher levels of productivity. Due to the diverse nature of our work force, several of our distribution centers offer Spanish and English language classes before and after shifts.
Throughout the year, associates, managers and executives in our corporate offices also receive a variety of training and development courses.
Spanish and English Courses: In several of our distribution centers, Spanish is the primary language for the majority of our associates. To help our associates grow together and better communicate with each other, we offer on-site Spanish and English as a Second Language classes. This program breaks down language barriers and fosters improved communication, while also providing associates an opportunity to learn a second language.
