    I worked at Quiksilver part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My co workers were nice very friendly with laid back attitudes that just made the environment overall relaxed. The discount is insane 75% off its been the best discount so far. I bought quite a few things for other people

    Cons

    There's no room for growth opportunity. You are either a manager, stock or sales associate. The managers don't know anything and they play favorites to employees who are just like them or hang out with them outside of work. I've watched people get passed up for people who are late and lazy but they have a dude like mentality

    Advice to Management

    Promote people who deserve it not your bros


  3. Not a good company.

    Advice to Management

    Next time you guys are hiring someone please make sure to do full background checks & drug screenings on any potential employees i do not want work with drug addicts its uncomfortable

    I worked at Quiksilver part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Store managers were really nice. Most of the customers were cool to talk with. Plenty of communication from corporate. Employee discount was great. fun atmosphere.

    Cons

    Some of the product was poor quality. Most everything is made in China. The CEO at the time was a huge d*uche rocket. He ruined everything I loved about the company.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to what was being done before Andy Mooney came along. Try to get back CFL's and publicly apologize for the hatchet job and poor leadership choice.

    I worked at Quiksilver full-time

    Pros

    The benefits are decent, there are tons of employee events, and the environment is very relaxed as far as attitude

    Cons

    Environment is way too relaxed when it comes to employee problems. Upper management totally plays favorites and unwilling to address uncomfortable issues. Pay is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    AR Director needs to learn how to deal with employee issues instead of ignoring things until people are forced out.

    Pros

    Fun environment with good people.

    Cons

    They are unorganized and did not want to promote from within. Brought in managers that then had to be trained by the staff they were "managing"

    Advice to Management

    Get organized and stick with the plan.

    Pros

    Awesome people with a really chill environment. Always understanding.

    Cons

    The hours are sometimes really long. Management switched a few times. It was hard to get off when needed

    Advice to Management

    Stop coming in on random occasions. Trust your employees to do their jobs the right way. Stop testing them they can do it.
