Rockettes Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Rockettes are an American precision dance company. Founded in 1925 in St. Louis, they have performed at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, since 1932. Until 2015 they also had a touring company. They are best known for starring in the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, an annual Christmas show, and for performing annually at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York. The Rockettes also conduct the Rockette Summer Intensive for dancers aspiring to be Rockettes.
Johnny B. from Melrose, MA shared in YELP that he was disappointed Rockettes’ staff service and crowd control: “Show was great but very disappointed in the way crowd control was conducted. Wanted 2 hrs to get in and missed 35 minutes of the show. Plan ahead for anyone that's attending this event or any at the Music Hall. Wrote an email about what happened and never got a Response because what I am hearing this is a ongoing problem. Very upset.”
According to a review on the website TripAdvisor.com the Rockettes Christmas show was not worth the money. A woman from Redondo Beach, California shared: “While visiting NYC I decided to get tix for the Rockettes Christmas show, I mean how much more New York can you get. I was totally disappointed!! I got a discounted tix on Travelzoo (still paid $60) The show was only 1 hour long. The girls were great and their dancing was beautiful but the rest of the show lacked excitement. The ending routine was not even the girls dancing. I actually dozed off. The children around me seemed to enjoy it but I was completely bored”.

Lead Custodian & Porter (Former Employee) says"No Communication I felt unvalued on everything I did especially in my position. Not a good place to work at. It’s not Worth going to jail or risking everything you work for."
Sales (Former Employee) says"Absolute TERRIBLE Experience working here. Stand Leads & Cashiers are working in freezing temperatures for hours on end, some not even receiving their breaks while also having to wear tarnished (dirty & VERY THIN) uniforms unsuitable for the temperatures they are forced to work through with the doors wide open & absolutely no heat. I've never felt so completely uncomfortable in my entire working life, even on a human level. Managers & Supervisors will basically make a mockery of you & the fact that you are freezing while working (especially on the Foyer/Street Level.) Very unprofessional & noncaring with their sales employees & will verbally disrespect you. No HEAT AT ALL. Not even worth trying as a new opportunity. You will feel violated, devastated, & may even leave sick with a pneumonia like ME."

Food Service Worker (Current Employee) says"I wouldn't count on this job for full-time because it heavily depends on how frequent the venue has their shows. If you need the money, wait until Christmas. If you need a little money here and there, this might be it. They are flexible with your schedule, the people i work with are generally friendly. It's not a perfect job, but no job is. There is room for seasonal promotion. The turnover rate is very low for regular workers as well.flexible with your schedulenot reliable as a regular job"

Usher (Former Employee) says"Very difficult atmosphere to work in. But I learned how i could grow my professionalism in the most unbearable work environment. I hardest part of the job was helping the patrons to the right entrance or ticket purchase window."
