    I have been working at Quiksilver as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The work environment is so much fun and everyone is super approachable and nice. People will be wearing sweatshirts to meetings and surf during their lunch breaks.

    Cons

    For an intern there was not always a ton to do, but it depends on your department

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

    Pros

    The people at the retail store are done of the greatest people I've ever worked with. They're all very genuine and want to make sure you grow. The discount is unbeatable, 75% off four things per month and pretty much 50% unlimited discount.

    Cons

    It's retail. You'll be working until midnight if you close, or as early as 5am if you work in merch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on having more things in stock, I swear we could make another $2000 everyday if I didn't have to tell customers we were out of stock so many times.

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

    Pros

    Training, relaxed atmosphere, friendly co-workers, great merchandise, flexible hours, employee discount

    Cons

    Location could've been better, mall rats (kids) being disrespectful, not enough people coming in despite great merchandise that led to store liquidation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better/ smarter advertising, come up with more city-friendly designs for your customers that aren't near the beach, fix the store layout (lights, fixtures, etc.) because it gives off a very dull AND cluttered feeling, offer more promotions
