    Pros

    It was a great environment.

    Cons

    Some of the sales associates were no responsible when it came to getting to work on time. It then made us all look bad with HR. Aside from that, i had a great time working at Ricky's.


  3. I was a sales associate, seasonally and I helped with makeup, costumes, wigs, and hair/beauty supplies.

    Pros

    I loved learning and helping with makeup and hair products. The employee discount was 40% which is great! I worked with a fun team.

    Cons

    Minimum wage. Seasonal. Like all retail jobs, we had a lot of irritating customers. Hard to get rehired, even after being recommended.

    Advice to Management

    My re-hire interview process, after working seasonally, was very unprofessional. People walked in and out of the room and between my interviewer and me. I'm assuming she barely remembered anything about me because of all the interruptions.

    Pros

    Good first time employer. Reasonable discount. Flexible hours for associate employees. Options available for growth within the company. Great way to gain experience in sales and beauty product knowledge.

    Cons

    After the change in corporate ownership and operations a lot of the positive practices were lost. No longer offer product knowledge classes or general training. Minimal support for newly promoted or hired management. Focus on the products and the customer experience is gone.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees who have been with the company longer than the new company president. Take the time to train your staff and show them your support. Do not make promises that can't be kept.

    Pros

    Nice customers and co associates

    Cons

    Some of these inexperienced managers play favoritism when it comes to hours no matter how hard you work. We talking 25 hrs. for favorites and 10 hrs. for real hard workers but its not every store just ones with managers with bad judgement.

    Advice to Management

    I swear you guys promote the wrong people. Just because they know products it doesn't mean they can manage a store. associates should know products your managers should be leaders and respected but that's impossible when friendships come before business. Food for thought hope you guys read this.

    Cons

    Totally Unprofessional, disorganized, the higher level CO management were just bullies with no type of experience for the position, i worked the Halloween season & then was promised a permanent position just for them to loose my paper work which lead to them giving me another interview at a different location & never to hear from them again

    Advice to Management

    RETURN TO YOUR OLD WAYS , or the company wont last ..

    Pros

    The 40 percent discount on certain products.

    Cons

    The climate at Ricky's is awful. They are currently strong-arming all employees into signing an agreement which requires the employee to disclose agreement to any future employer for one year. It also prohibits any employer/employee disagreement to be hear before a jury as well as requiring compensation from employee for any disagreement. Is this legal??

    Advice to Management

    This should not be a lord/serf arrangement. Treat your employees with respect and they will return the favor.
