    I worked at Billabong full-time

    Pros

    The company is well established but it has more of a start up feel where it's lean teams and all hands on deck to help out- I really enjoy that type of environment. It's a fun place to work where we have monthly activities like beach days, pot-lucks, parties etc.

    Cons

    Be prepared to be on your toes. Last minute ideas and fire drills so you have to drop everything to accommodate.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Billabong.

    Interview

    Easy and fun. Great team, family like environment. The company culture is well suited for young, single people. A lot of upward mobility for young men in this industry. Easy and fun.
