    I have been working at RVCA

    Pros

    RVCA is an all around great place to work. The office is inspiring as well as the people that work there. If you are into surfing, skating, art, MMA fighting, or fashion then this is the ideal place for you.

    Cons

    Downstairs bathrooms flood occasionally.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keepin' on

      I have been working at RVCA full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Great Brand, Passionate People, work outs at work, free breakfast, flexible work hours & vacation (if you can get away to actually take vacation)

      Cons

      Mis-communication within higher management which doubles work load for the worker bees, overworked, not given enough time to do job properly which ends up in unnecessary double work, it takes forever to get anything approved, long interview process

      Advice to Management

      be more clear in your vision, don't overwork people, take the time to make sure the entire upper management is on the same page before you make sweeping changes. Value your employees

      I worked at RVCA full-time

      Pros

      President of United States invited owner Pat Tenore to White house for Integrity & Success! Sour grapes for lazy competitors above who needed to be replaced when they lost their jobs for being incompetence after this great honest company and man fed their families- where any company would have fired them! Company & Owner was nominated Best Employment place in Orange County! And for extreme integrity and honesty. Losers...

      Show More

      Cons

      Just the 2 "Fake posters" above who came from and went back to competitors. Losers & Pathetic.

      Advice to Management

      Keep your focus and Integrity that drove you to the top! You are stars even though you never look for attention- you made the nation proud. Ignore the ignorant jealous competitors and their spies.

      I worked at RVCA full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Cool Cloths, Good materials, as a retailer, they really had it going on in the beginning.

      Cons

      Ego Driven Ownership, success really had nothing to do with the "visionary" LOL Patrick Tenore Jr.. Useless ownership, good peeps to work with, pay sucked. Over Worked. ownership has no loyalty for the hard work you put in.

      Advice to Management

      Find he Original cast way back in the day and you may have a vibrant brand again, where people loved to come to work. IE.. Jimmy, Conan, Cayetano, Boyd, Fred. I had a chance to meet these guys, all were down to earth and really trying to get this thing off the ground, then comes the Owner who screwed them all one at a time... LOL

      I worked at RVCA full-time

      Pros

      Fellow co-workers were great to work with. Slowly, the good ones started leaving though.

      Cons

      Constant change in management, always trying to fix what isn't wrong and not fix what is. Management doesn't understand the company culture. Poor pay. Depressing moral. No room for growth.

      Advice to Management

      Hire management that cares about its employees and don't bleed them dry. Everyone is spread thin.
