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

    Pros

    Young staff likes to have fun, parties, skateboard ramp.
    Future employers see Quiksilver on resume and are easily impressed.

    Cons

    Young staff is immature and corporate office feels like high school with popular kids and bullies.
    Many late nights and weekends. No compensation for overtime, not even old fit samples which other fashion houses give away.
    Couldn't take accrued vacation time during slowest time of year, told I'd be risking my job if I wanted to take 1 week off!
    Department managers supported and participated in gossip and bad mouthing other employees, creating bad working environment!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Critique managers of each department for ability to lead people. Send designers turned managers to management classes so they know how to treat people. So they know how to help them grow.
