Shift mannager (Current Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 8 April 2019
Fun place to work, hard at the begging but we you get it is just a piece of cake!. In my store, we have an awesome manager and a very good team + 50% discount for employees!!! Payment, on the other hand, is just minimal wave or not to above that. Some times hours get cut in the same shift you'r working on, but not for full times. Don't get commission.
50% discount + occasional incentives
Some times too much work, not enough people in the shift. Have to do a certain amount of cards every week.
Ricki's treated me well for all of a month. my hours suddenly were cut without notice, schedules were being changed without notice and management was terribly rude. Too number/goal based rather than working on improvement and teammate, felt like we were competing. When brought up complaints about other co-workers, i was told I was incompetent and blamed for whatever the issue was. DO NOT RECCOMEND

There is not a typical day in Rickis. The retail environment is continually changing. The best part of the job are the people, staff and customers... Workplace culture is very good for a retail environment. Your FEEDBACK is not only valued, but it is a job requirement.
The only negative is the pay scale is below average. With all the American companies in Canada to compete against, the salary base should be higher. Even so a great environment to learn and grow in.

hours were too much with not enough staff-need to operate with more hours to give quality customer service. no need to be open in the mall we were in on a Saturday night until 9PM or have additional late night Sunday night shopping. environment doesn't support the additional staff required as the sales just were reduced on another day to compensate the extra time allotted.
RETAIL SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Orleans, ON – 22 June 2018
Best customers I have ever had. Management however, was okay. It really did feel that at some points it did not matter what you were doing or how hard you were trying it just seemed to not be good enough.
Shift Manager (Former Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 20 March 2018
Management was supportive, encouraging, and friendly. The employees worked as a team while motivating each other individually. The customers at Ricki's are always so much fun to help find the clothes/wardrobe they're looking for and very thankful for our customer service.
Associate (Former Employee) – Kitchener-Waterloo, ON – 12 February 2018
Got hired then immediately thrown onto the sales floor without any training. High expectations for sales on my first shift. Everyone in the store worked only three hour shifts and the actual associates were apparently in and out like a revolving door. A lot of pressure for new people and poor management. One of the other employees had been working there for a month and still didn't know the till. Would not recommend if you're looking for a job that you wish to be respected and supported in your starting shifts.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 18 September 2017
The Ricki's clothing store is one of the most rewarding and uplifting environments I have gotten the opportunity to work for.
During my time at this job i learned a lot about how the retail industry works. Management allowed me the chance to work outside my sales associate position and taught me how to build the stores display, how to handle the paper work with closing the store and the chance to learn about clothing on different body types.
Key Holder (Current Employee) – Fredericton, NB – 14 September 2017
I loved everything about working here. The customers are amazing and I love helping them find whatever they are looking for. A typical day can be very fast paced or very slow, but there is always work to be done. What I enjoy most is the chance to meet and greet new people every day.

The hardest part of the job is "connecting with customers". Customers will ask for help when needed, and that is when the connection should be built. It should not be forced when they walk through the store.
