      Pros

      A lot of work hours are given.

      Rude managers who make you afraid to come into work. They degrade you and yell at you in front of other staff. They also make fun of you in staff wide emails.

      Pros

      Pay rate was good. Decent incentives for upselling.

      Cons

      Once sales went down after initial hype wore off, less and less hours were offered. Staff were let go and new, younger employees were hired at lower rates.

      You have to clean human fecies at times, for $8.50 an hour

      Pros

      There are some amazing fun people that make you want to come into work and do your best. You can go, weirdly enough, to a TON of other attractions (Non Ripley's) For free.

      Cons

      You get paid on a commission basis with 8 an hour being your starting wage. The likelihood that you get to work at a location which commission is even a possibility is low, especially if you are young.

      Management Is Poor

      Pros

      The customers are fun and kind. The company outside this one location seems like it could be good.

      Cons

      Management is a nightmare. Do not care about wellbeing of associates. Paul, the General Manager in Orlando is unprofessional and a terrible reflection of what Ripley's should be. One manager said he made her cry, another employee had an anxiety attack and he was annoyed. He talks down to everyone and treats his position as something else.
