    I have been working at Quiksilver part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people at the retail store are done of the greatest people I've ever worked with. They're all very genuine and want to make sure you grow. The discount is unbeatable, 75% off four things per month and pretty much 50% unlimited discount.

    Cons

    It's retail. You'll be working until midnight if you close, or as early as 5am if you work in merch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on having more things in stock, I swear we could make another $2000 everyday if I didn't have to tell customers we were out of stock so many times.

    Pros

    The management is flexible and give you opportunities to advance which is nice. Everyone that works there seems to like their job.

    Cons

    Work load can be a little much at times. And the opportunity to advance may be limited depending on what area of the company you are placed into.

    Good Vibes and Great Fun

    I have been working at Quiksilver (less than an year)

    Pros

    -fun atmosphere
    -diverse customers
    -fun out of work activities
    -coworkers are friends!
    -performance recognition
    -generous employee discount/benefits
    -flexible hours and shifts

    Cons

    Not too many cons really. Its a retail job, so expect the usual sporadic scheduling and varying pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is an original leader in the game. They don't need advice. Every store is going to be different, but all have the same good vibes and goals. The only advice I could offer is to keep the fun alive in the retail stores.

    I worked at Quiksilver

    Pros

    Awesome work environment
    Very cool unique custy's (customers)
    Family feel
    Lots of PK (product knowledge)
    Laid back
    Fun events!

    Cons

    No room for advancement
    Not enough hours to survive
    No pressure to sell (which in my case ultimately resulted in my store closing)
    Not enough training for management team

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your staff, TRAIN them, or send them to training events. It will pay off in the long run.
    Add incentives so they want to sell and the stores don't close.
    You can still have high standards without sacrificing the chill vibe.

    I worked at Quiksilver part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    A fantastic, enthusiastic team with a good mix of retail professionals and people with a board riding background, ideal to sell and offer advice on the Quiksilver clothing and accessories range. Good, fair management with support inside and outside of the job.

    Cons

    Sometimes there were few hours for part-time workers however obviously this can't always be avoided.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure to hire people with a board riding background to ensure an immersive and helpful experience for customers whilst also creating a great work environment and sales team.
