    I worked at Ricky's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Discount and thats about it! they could care less about your actual knowledge of products except up sell the most expensive things.

    Cons

    Pay, corporate, managers, and the overall attitude of everyone in the company. They expect so much from their sales associates with little pay and respect. No way to actually move up in this company unless you're maybe sleeping with someone in corporate or you're related to them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick better managers and up pay....or just close this place down actually lost of illegal stuff in this company.

    I have been working at Ricky's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great discounts, product knowledge training (paid) , great people I work with I loved my coworkers and managers they helped me when I started no matter how many times I asked, majority of my store tries to work as a team , this is a great place to work

    Cons

    Pay sucks, in my store its keep your mouth shut or get 1 transfed or 2 get fired.
    no help when with S.M , our schedule isnt done untill sunday when its suppose to done no later then Friday, I always get scheduled alone with no help , little pay to do something that takes 2 people to do, store manager always in the office sleeping or on YouTube while im alone on the floor, store manager doesnt think about doing things as team work, favoritism certin rules get slide with certin employees, we need store meetings S.M said no countless of time (he says he doesn't see a point to it) our stock manager doesnt know how to do the job he just got promoted to, all black dress code is stupid if your an associate who has to do boxes on a daily basis

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    H.R should listen to the employees complaint and fix then not jus transfer the employees cause its still going to be the same with the next employee, plan make sure managers that are being hired have manager experience, if promotion are done with any employee h.r should be on top on replacing that emploee that got replaced, also if you have had complaintsabout a manager please do not make them a store manager, raise pay to keep your employees happy to deal with all the crap for nothing

    I worked at Ricky's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company is fun and very hands on with customer care. Offers product knowledge classes to better assist customers.

    Cons

    Management doesn't pay too much attention to who they hire. The temporary stores are always in violation to many business practices. HR and upper management doesn't take employee conflicts seriously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make more of an effort to do background checks on new hires

    Pros

    Very friendly staff for the most part, loved the assistant manager to bits!

    Cons

    Manger of the store made a big deal over nothing and expected people to do his dirty work, people in this city really don't care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Well none currently due to the fact the old manager is gone but for the future please be more understanding to people's person situations. Things happen, we get caught in traffic, we get sick, life has a way of throwing a curve ball sometimes. We enjoy and need our jobs and if we give you the heads up about something PLEASE do not throw it in our faces and fire us.
