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

    Pros

    Aesthetically pleasing atmosphere, no micro managing, promotes from within, decent benefits

    Cons

    Salary isn't competitive with other companies in the same industry. The wheels to be hired or promoted from within move slowly

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to cross train and if possible always promote from within. If salary can't be improved then make up for it by giving comp time off, corporate lunches, etc

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

    Pros

    It used to be a great place to work with likeminded people who shared a stoke for the industry.

    Cons

    The stock market crashed, then they accidentally hired Andy Moonie to fist... err, "FIX" the company. He laid off almost 800 employees.

    Advice to Management

    No advice- everyone I worked with or for is gone now

    Pros

    Great company to learn fundamentals of retail. One learns that to strive as a unit one can not depend on a sole individual. Everything must be done accordingly as a team from associates to management. Store discount is great, the people that walk in from all over the world and to get to hear their stories is inspirational, and the coworkers are all great and are like a family or what we like to call Ohana.

    Cons

    Constant Micro-management to a certain extent, but is done evidently to strive as a store. Problems are handled very slowly.

    Advice to Management

    Have some emotional intelligence everything is not only about the store. Theres only so much an employees can do, stop focusing on the negatives all the time and acknowledge the positives when possible. Employees highly appeciate it and it drives one to continue working hard.

    I have been working at Quiksilver part-time

    Pros

    It was a very relaxed atmosphere with a great dynamic between the co workers. Managers and supervisors were really there for you to learn, but treated you as their equals. Great discount. 50% off almost everything and 75% off four items a month

    Cons

    Really mundane tasks Little to no raise in pay


  10. great workplace with good management, but at the end of the day, it's just another retail shop.

    I have been working at Quiksilver part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    by the beach, surf shop with surfboards and accessories, fun co-workers, fairly laid back yet very professional. Great place to have your first job or develop all-around skills in life.

    Cons

    climbing up the ladder, the pay, and buying into the company. working in santa moinca means you must either walk 20-30 minutes to work, or pay $5-$14 to work in the city.

    Advice to Management

    take care of your people. spend money wisely. focus your energy, time, and money with people that know how to get work done.

    Stop punishing your associates for talking on the job when that's all you do.
