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

    Pros

    Decent work/life balance, leave at 4pm on Fridays.

    Cons

    Too many employees and management that have been here too long and parked in place, not a lot of change happening and makes it difficult to move up. Old school procedures and mentality. Pay is really bad and benefits are not great either. The raises they give after annual reviews are a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be more progressive and forward as a company. Stores look dated and has a department store atmosphere. Also need to invest in and grow your new employees and provide better training (which they aren’t doing at all). Not a good, especially if you want to attract and develop new talent.

    "Great benefits but lousy communication"

      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.
