    great company

    Planning (Former Employee) Foothill Ranch, CA

    Proslots of opportunity, with many different product categories including apparel, accessories, footwear, watches, electronics, sunglasses, along with many different positions from design, development, production, purchasing, planning, engineering, finance etc.

    Consthe action sports culture can be a shock for anyone coming from a very professional conservative working environment.

    Great Environment, Low Pay

    Visual Merchandising Specialist (Former Employee) Irvine, CA

    ProsEnvironment and culture were one for the books. It has yet to be matched for me.
    Company had a good amount of perks with quarterly parties and athlete signings in the lobby.
    Talented people in the building.

    ConsPay was staggeringly low.
    Many talented people got blocked by untalented management, causing the talent to leave the company or live as an unknown talent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe competitive with pay, don't keep it low people will stay longer. Also, look to get to know the associates and coordinators better, they do most of the dirt work and deserve a high five!

    Everything in the world can and always will be made better.

    Store Manager (Former Employee) Farmington, CT

    ProsHumble, authentic, performance obsessed, passionate and innovative.

    ConsPay not competitive enough and too many changes happening at once.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work. Company is growing and it seems the changes that are being implemented are good ones. I think the company could do better as far as salaries go and that goes for all positions. Overall really fun company to work for.
