Former Employee - Manager in Huntington Beach, CA
Former Employee - Manager in Huntington Beach, CA

I worked at Quiksilver full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Updated work environment, creative spaces, good place to work if you're action sports oriented

Cons

Poor management, company priorities are not in order, ineffective leadership, career growth path is minimal, execs have good quality of life while worker bees do most of the heavy lifting.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Coach and encourage your people to grow and take responsibility for their actions. The sign of bad management is withholding information, excluding your team from decision making and communication - stop keeping people in the dark like mushrooms...Stop promoting unqualified "Bros" into executive positions, just because they make great surfing buddies.

    Good Vibes and Great Fun

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Scottsdale, AZ

    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.

    Current Employee - Sales Associate in Universal City, CA

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

    Pros

    Working with the cool supervisors and fellow associates at Universal City.

    Cons

    Terrible store manager who knows how to talk. I have never worked for such a individual who gets away with everything. All hard work gets credited to the store manager, when in fact, he has done nothing for the store other than cause stress to all employees, and working a 25-30 hour week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your employees from the bottom up. We also need role models for store managers, not irresponsible thirty year olds.
