    I worked at Ron Jon Surf Shop full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Full-time positions, consistent hours, over-time pay, decent pay for entry level, professional management, and thorough training.

    Cons

    Strict dress code for a retail job. We had 1 general manager and 3 assistant managers whose differences in management style and process often conflicted, so that lead to confusion over store functions sometimes.

    I worked at Ron Jon Surf Shop full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Simple retail work, fold shirts, sell skateboards, surfboards, surf equipment, interact with customers, learn about surf culture, nice stores, cool co workers, fun environment to begin learning about sales. The employee discounts are nice.

    Cons

    Very repetitive, no commission, micro-management, everything in the stores is observed so much in person and thru cameras that some coworkers called it The Bank since you were constantly being recorded. Talking with coworkers is frowned upon and some managers do not always understand what the product they are asking you to sell. Visual merchandising creativity is limited and new ideas are not taken in consideration....
