I filled out the application and the manager escorted me to the back of the store. He told me to sit down because he was giving me an on the spot interview.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Ricky's in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    The person I was supposed to interview with never showed or was unavailable. I ended up meeting another individual who wasn't prepared to meet with me but was able to have a nice conversation and review my background as well as theirs. it was very casual interview. I wrote a thank you note but never even heard back to even say I didnt get the job. i thought it was very unprofessional to have interviews scheduled snd the person not show up and then dont even send a letter or anything saying hou did not get the job.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Ricky's.

    Interview Details

    I applied via craigslist. Got a call back within that same week. The actual first interview was with an HR assistant who pre-screened me. Basic questions like "How would you diffuse a situation?" "What is a tough situation you were in? How did you resolve it?" "What can you bring to our company?" I was love hair and cosmetics so I was very passionate about my love for the industry.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    There was no real negotiation because I didn't have management experience. The head HR manager basically said I know you're worth the money,but you don't have the experience to make a salary that senior staff or store managers are making. I accepted at $36,000. BUT, my store manager quit after 3 months and I was promoted to sotre manager where i negotiated 40K.

    Interview Details

    Saw an AD on Craigslist and sent an email to them. A week later I got an email saying that I can come on for a group interview the following monday. Upon my arrival it was a small group. Like 8 of us. Others was filling out their applications. A few minutes later a lady came in & asked us to introduce ourselves and name on word that describes us. Then she asked questions like..name a time you had to deal with a rude customer and how u handled it, how should a manager act (something like that) . And another question. The questions are optional, but STILL ANSWER THEM!!! Your availability and answers determine your hiring. Good luck!

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Ricky's.

    Interview Details

    It took five minutes, at most. If you can speak with proper English, if you have a decent education and retail experience you will be considered for a management position. It seemed as though the only purpose of the interview is to make sure that you have more than a peanut for a brain. This company is a joke.

    Interview Questions
    • Really easy questions like the following: what are the characteristics of a good manager?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I needed the job too much to risk pushing it. It seemed that there wasn't going to be very much negotiation before I was shown the door,

    Interview Details

    Hand in an application and I received a phone call from the HR department for a group interview. Went around the room asked pretty basic questions like "Why do you want to work here?", What are my strengths and weaknesses?" after you are done with group interview I received a phone call the next day for a one on one where they hired me after asking a few more questions. Overall it was pretty easy. Just be presentable, well spoken and show that you really enjoy working there and its not just a job,
