    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.
