Former Employee - Associate Designer in Costa Mesa, CA
Former Employee - Associate Designer in Costa Mesa, CA
Doesn't Recommend
Approves of CEO

Pros

Young staff likes to have fun, parties, skateboard ramp.
Future employers see Quiksilver on resume and are easily impressed.

Cons

Young staff is immature and corporate office feels like high school with popular kids and bullies.
Many late nights and weekends. No compensation for overtime, not even old fit samples which other fashion houses give away.
Couldn't take accrued vacation time during slowest time of year, told I'd be risking my job if I wanted to take 1 week off!
Department managers supported and participated in gossip and bad mouthing other employees, creating bad working environment!

Advice to Management

Critique managers of each department for ability to lead people. Send designers turned managers to management classes so they know how to treat people. So they know how to help them grow.
