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

    Pros

    You work with awesome people and you are surrounded by great quality clothing. Working here you learn a lot and can move up in the company. The customers are usually families or really laid back people who surf or snowboard.

    Cons

    Your hourly rate only increases about one or two times a year and you start at minimum wage.
