    I have been working at Ron Jon Surf Shop full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, friendly employees, on the beautiful Florida Clearwater beach, great hours and schedules, caring management, perks for employees and family. Best retail employer I've been with.

    Cons

    What is there not to love about all of the pros. I have not found a con just unless you are not used to standing on your feet.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the fabulous work,!

    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 have been working at Ron Jon Surf Shop full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great people to work with and a great stepping stone job to get you were you need to go. We are all full time with pto and insurance.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of room for growth. Once your trained in all departments that as far as you really go.

    Advice to Management

    Let more people train when they want to.

    I worked at Ron Jon Surf Shop full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    40hours and benefits , same days off in a row

    Cons

    Managers don’t care!!!!! They play around with the young kids and the older and more responsible you are the crappier you get treated. And God forbid do NOT confide n a manager because it will be all over the store.

    Advice to Management

    Find another job the GM needs to get rid of all of you except Jason. Corporate treats him like crap yet he does his job. Also stop giving low paying corporate employees access to the cameras in the store because they think they got power and tell everyone everything!!! It’s a joke

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

    Pros

    they teach you everything you need to know and don’t just throw you out on the floor the cashier system is suuuper easy

    Cons

    9 hours of straight standing would have too many employees on the floor so you get bored keep you in certain sections for the WHOLE shift, the kids section was hidden so you never saw civilization everything has to be folded a certain way

    I worked at Ron Jon Surf Shop full-time for 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...

    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.

    Former Employee - Sales Associate in Cocoa Beach, FL

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

    Pros

    The atmosphere is nice, the work isn't really hard and people are usually on vacation and in a good mood. The managers are always there to help.

    Cons

    You'll be standing all day which is really not a bad thing but if you don't normally stand it will take some getting used to.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on bringing meaning to the job for your employees. I think if it were presented as more than just a retail job it would feel better working there.

    I have been working at Ron Jon Surf Shop full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I loved having a set 8-5 schedule and the same days off every week the other sales associates are generally good people

    Cons

    Management is inconsistent in how they want things done being a primarily female work place, gossips runs the day to day conversation and can be quite annoying if you get caught up in it, on top of that associates get in trouble for gossiping while management is behind the scenes doing the same thing pay could be better supposed to be a surf shop but you cant even wear flip flops or have colored hair or facial piercings...

    Advice to Management

    treat your employees better act your age and stop the gossip help out on the sales floor instead of spending your whole day in the office and then blaming the associates if something goes wrong.

    I worked at Ron Jon Surf Shop full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Full time set schedule. Long breaks. 25% discount.

    Cons

    Corporate doesn't spend nearly as much focus on managers as they do to the rest of the staff. The staff suffered from lack of true guidance from the gms they hired the last handful of years. Environment can be hostile. Didn't really see a lot of promotions.
