Store Manager

My career with dd’s has been a great experience. My role has helped me develop organizational skills and learn to manage multiple priorities, including recruiting, training and coaching Associates. This is such a great Company and I can see myself here for the long term.



Strategy Analyst

Ross is unique. If you want to move to another department or try something new, they’ll help you get there. I interned in Finance but thought Strategy would be a better fit for me. My boss set me up to interview with the Strategy team — and now here I am as a full-time Strategy Analyst!



Assistant Buyer

Throughout my internship, I participated in merchant training classes, which allowed me to grasp the fundamentals of the business. Working with my team furthered my knowledge of the nuances within my business. That support has continued during my onboarding as a full-time Associate. In the short time I have been at Ross I have experienced more than I ever would have expected!
