    Great atmosphere

    Manufacturing Intern (Former Employee) Foothill Ranch, CA

    ProsWhen I interviewed, they told me to come in shorts and a t-shirt, and that's how everyone is dressed for work. Although the atmosphere is casual, the work is strictly professional. One of the most amazing places I've worked at.

    ConsI really didn't have any complaints while working there.

    Phenomenal Company - Amazing Benefits

    Sales Associate (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThe company actually cares about all of their employees, no matter their position. They extend the success of the company to all employees through bonuses, free clothing, and amazing promotional events.

    ConsRetail stores and the unfortunate, uncontrollable roller coaster that the economy puts them through. Holidays are tough too.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think quarterly meetings between employees is needed to share information and trade ideas on how to sell new products.

    great company

    Planning (Former Employee) Foothill Ranch, CA

    Proslots of opportunity, with many different product categories including apparel, accessories, footwear, watches, electronics, sunglasses, along with many different positions from design, development, production, purchasing, planning, engineering, finance etc.

    Consthe action sports culture can be a shock for anyone coming from a very professional conservative working environment.

     

    Fun place to work with people who love the industry.

    Everything in the world can and always will be made better.

    Store Manager (Former Employee) Farmington, CT

    ProsHumble, authentic, performance obsessed, passionate and innovative.

    ConsPay not competitive enough and too many changes happening at once.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work. Company is growing and it seems the changes that are being implemented are good ones. I think the company could do better as far as salaries go and that goes for all positions. Overall really fun company to work for.
