    I worked at Quiksilver

    Pros

    Awesome people with a really chill environment. Always understanding.

    Cons

    The hours are sometimes really long. Management switched a few times. It was hard to get off when needed

    Advice to Management

    Stop coming in on random occasions. Trust your employees to do their jobs the right way. Stop testing them they can do it.

    Pros

    Great company to learn fundamentals of retail. One learns that to strive as a unit one can not depend on a sole individual. Everything must be done accordingly as a team from associates to management. Store discount is great, the people that walk in from all over the world and to get to hear their stories is inspirational, and the coworkers are all great and are like a family or what we like to call Ohana.

    Cons

    Constant Micro-management to a certain extent, but is done evidently to strive as a store. Problems are handled very slowly.

    Advice to Management

    Have some emotional intelligence everything is not only about the store. Theres only so much an employees can do, stop focusing on the negatives all the time and acknowledge the positives when possible. Employees highly appeciate it and it drives one to continue working hard.

    Pros

    Great work environment. The managers and associates were awesome people Very flexible schedule No uniform, just no logos 75% discount on 2 tops and 2 bottoms of your size 40% discount after that

    Cons

    I worked at a tourist mall and people can be hard to deal with

    Advice to Management

    Stop punishing your associates for talking on the job when that's all you do.

    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 Management

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
