Fun Enviornment to work in
Ticket Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Myrtle Beach, SCMay 28, 2015
A typical day at Ripley's involves counting down a cash drawer and selling tickets to multiple venues on Ocean Blvd. The main objective with this job was to be professional and sell, sell, sell. The co-workers were very energetic and understood what the job entailed. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the extremely rude customers, but the most enjoyable part was interacting with co-workers and people.
Pros
Enjoyable working enviornment
Cons
short breaks

Great job in Gatlinburg
Guest Relations Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Gatlinburg, TNOctober 24, 2014
Working for Ripley's has benefited me tremendously with a positive impact. You learn more about yourself as you take on more responsibilities and you definitely have the opportunity to heighten your work ethic and skills. Everyone is friendly and you get to meet people from not only all over the nation, but also the world. Hardest part of the job is probably being able to stay calm and collected during certain situations, but its during these times when you are able to learn to prepare for adulthood and you get to hone in on skills that may be required of you later in life. Overall its a great place to work in East Tennessee, especially if you are new to the job circuit.
Pros
monthly free lunches, discounted tickets to other great entertainments in the area
Cons
strict, you deal with thousands of people
