    Visual Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Quiksilver in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had applied for the position online, and was called back for an interview at 4 in the afternoon, when the visual merchandiser leaves before so I came back with an interview the next morning. It was very low key interview. One-on-one questions on experience and what I thought about the company. It make me feel comfortable. I was told I would called back but never was, so I kept in contact with the store until they told me I was too inexperienced for a merchandiser position but I could work as a full-time associate and work up. I was able to work my way to visuals after a month.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Quiksilver in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    I got a phone call from the assistant manager to come in for a group interview. She told me to dress in any Quiksilver clothes. There were 4 managers and 3 interviewees. They asked questions like "What kind of retail experience do you have; How do you handle someone who is difficult; How well do you take directions and what approach do you use as you follow them". The interview was a lot more relaxed rather than intimidating. It felt more like a group conversation.

    Interview Questions
    • She asked me "If you were trapped on an island, what three things would you bring and why". Pretty unexpected but the reason was to see how well you thought out the question.   Answer Question

    Inventory/Stock Associate Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Quiksilver in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received a phone call the next day. I had 2 interviews that happened in a span of 2 weeks. The first one was with all 3 managers, and the second one was with a supervisor and an associate. Both interviews started off like any other interview with your typical questions (e.g. Why do you want to work here?) Then both interviews gradually became more informal and personal. They asked me about my hopes and dreams rather than continuing with business-like questions. I was offered a job within a week after my 2nd interview after my background check was cleared.

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Quiksilver.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received an almost immediate response, and made an appointment to come into the store for a small group interview. The process was very laid back and relaxed, with the interviewers being very nice and informal. We were taken around and shown the store and did some new hire orientation the same night and we were introduced to the employees there.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Quiksilver in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Got a call about a week after applying online. I know other people have said to dress casually probably in Quicksilver attire, so I wore a Quiksilver shirt with a a dress shirt over it as well as skinny black jeans. Got there and waited for the manager where we moved to another location of the mall . Pretty basic questions of why do you want to work here, what qualifies you. Overall simple interview. Didn't get an offer however, but could be due to lack of work experience.
