    I worked at Ron Jon Surf Shop full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get discounts on clothes.

    Cons

    Minimum wage.
    The surfboards you sell are Chinese Crap.
    Calls their team a family while abusing them.
    Act like they promote from within, than you find the position they hang over your head is on Craigslist.

    Advice to Management

    Stop fraternizing with associates.
    Pay more than the literal bare minimum.
    Quit acting like this is your chance at a high school redemption; there is a reason the turn over rate is so high.

    I worked at Ron Jon Surf Shop full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The hours. 40 hours a week. No leaving early if it's slow. No OT.

    Cons

    Management stands around doing nothing. You stop to rest for 1 min and they hound you to start doing something. The mall closed a month ago so all you do is re fold all the same shirts over and over again. The GM is bipolar and is nice to an extent then freaks out on you for no reason and they all get in your face and yell at you. Can't go outside on your breaks. One of the managers told me that corporate told them to stand around while the employees do all of the work. No praise for doing good jobs. Half the management have dumb looks on their faces most of the time or look angry and are very young and in experienced.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to be more involved with stores. Management needs to help and do everything an employee would do. Stop thinking your all that cause your the GM of a store. There are what 14 stores in the company. Your not that great.

    I have been working at Ron Jon Surf Shop full-time

    Pros

    It is a surf shop.
    Schedules.

    Cons

    Poor office pay...very low compared to industry standards. This is the main reason I am searching for other employment.

    The job you do and the job you are paid for are not the same.

    People within same area are treated differently.

    Old building. Needs updating.

    Unorganized.

    Different managers will give different answers to the same questions.
