    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.

  3. "Sales Associate"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at Ron Jon Surf Shop

      Pros

      Guaranteed hours, PTO if full time, somewhat decent benefits. At least with my store the managers were awesome.

      Cons

      Pay is horrible! People who scoop ice cream make more than Ron Jons. Corporate constantly watches over you and calls the store if you’re doing the slightest thing such as leaning on the table when it’s dead slow. Standing all day long. Very difficult to get a day off or even something simple as calling in late.

      Advice to Management

      Keep doing what you guys are doing

        Pros

        Guaranteed full time. Consistent schedule with same days off. PTO and benefits

        Cons

        Hard to move up. Inconsistent management. Little to no recognition for good work

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

        Pros

        Full time at certain locations. Benefits. PTO. Health insurance. Hour long lunch break. Discounts.

        Cons

        Disorganized, temperamental, hypocritical, under values employees very frequently etc. If you just need a job, apply. If you plan on being there for a while, just don't. Save yourself the trouble. Move on to a company that doesn't lose their mind over petty little things and ignore everything you've done for them. This is a place that will put words in your mouth frequently and hide behind cameras to deliver messages....

        Advice to Management

        I've already given it all in person. This is the most absurd company. In the end I'm disgusted and should have just leaned on a counter or waved a key around all day instead of actually trying.

        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.

        "Great benefits but lousy communication"

        StarStarStarStarStar
          Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Fort Myers, FL

          I worked at Ron Jon Surf Shop full-time

          Pros

          Ron Jon has excellent benefits for full time employees including medical, dental, vision and life as well as employee discounts and education reimbursement. The customers are genuinely happy to shop and appreciate good service. Having a set schedule with the same days off each week was also nice.

          Cons

          Corporate management is very secretive and treats store management on a need-to-know basis. This makes it difficult sometimes to effectively run a store. Minimal support from corporate.

          Advice to Management

          Communicate more with your stores and your employees. Acknowledge the hard work of the store employees rather than finding fault with everything little thing.

          Pros

          Seasonal full time Same hours Same day-off days

          Cons

          Wage salary is too low for the amount of stress Managers don't give clear orders, confuse others with different tasks at the same time. The place is dirty everywhere, they make the employees clean the bathroom, the floors, everything before opening and yell at you if you dont do it fast and perfect...we were never told we would be janitors, cashiers, customer service and security guards...

          Advice to Management

          Improve communication and give the example doing a job well done before yelling everybody.

          Pros

          Full Time work either AM shift or PM

          Cons

          The management does not care about you. You are expected to act as a security guard and chase after people if the alarm goes off as they leave, even if you are in the middle of a transaction. It is very high stress when at the front registers. Within a year after I left, only 3 or 4 of the associates were still there. All the management had been replaced and most of the other employees quit. The remaining employees I...

          Advice to Management

          Get a security guard so the employees can focus on the customers who are legit and give some training on counterfeit money.
