    I have been working at Mainland Skate & Surf part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Company is growing at an alarming rate, You make connections when it comes to trying your hand at starting your on business. Family type of atmosphere.

    Cons

    The family atmosphere works both ways. You don't always get along with other employees, Management doesn't always condone or maintain professionalism. most days, your stuck just tagging product. Nothing more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Breaks are not 15 Mins, but they should be due to excess standing. Minimum talking should be allowed, but monitored.

    Former Employee - Warehouse in Visalia, CA

    I worked at Mainland Skate & Surf part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good discounts. Cool reps from other companies.

    Cons

    Unprofessional management. Favoritism. Sweatshop like atmosphere. No A/C or heat in warehouse so you are either sweating to death or burning up. Never allowed to talk unless it's about work. Poor wages and no health insurance. Very disorganized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your act together and be professional. Only one manager was ever professional in that place. Smart enough to finally quit.

    -30 min lunch if you ever get one
    -Not supposed to talk to other employees
    -Owner believes that if employees aren't regularly getting written up then they are getting away with murder.
    -Expect you to make so many sales a day
    -Bakersfield DM is a jerk
    -Hard to promote and if you do it will take a long time
    -Customers are rude...not really a skate shop more of a clothing shop for swag hags and bros
    -Expect you to be bubbly and loud otherwise they do not see you as valuable despite your sales
    -Try to keep everything a secret from staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach please.
