Hard work goes does not pay off.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Gatlinburg, TN

ProsPaid vacation, sick pay and decent insurance.

ConsEmployees are underpaid and unappreciated. I worked at Ripley's for almost a decade. I started at $7.50 per hour. I quit making $9.75 per hour. When asking for a raise, I would be told that it did not make since to give me more money when someone could be hired at $8.00 to do my job. I was a great employee. I called in under 10 times in the extremely long time period I was employed with the company. I also took on allot of extra responsibility that went unnoticed.

Ripley's also hires most of its employees as part time. Part time employees work full time hours without benefits. All those great benefits are only available to a few people. Bottom line Ripley's does not care about its employees. They are only interested in making money and cutting costs.
