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

    Pros

    Relaxed, friendly, patient, great management. Everyone at the Folsom store is great to be around and always helpful, made me want to go to work often, great good people.

    Cons

    Retail is boring, worked outlet so no inventory, frustrating to sell because we never had any product and even when we did it wasn't great. Wanted more hours, but didn't get enough a lot of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Get your outlets more inventory! Corporate needs to bring something new and important to the game.

    I worked at Quiksilver full-time

    Pros

    Very casual work environment. Everyone works really well together. Finance was one of the few departments that made it feel "family" like.

    Cons

    Corporate mentality. Sometimes you feel like a number and it's hard to shine when you have to show your work for more than 3% and that's if they will give it (currently unsure due to bankruptcy)

    Advice to Management

    Communicate. Communication is key and needed across all departments to be in the know of the company.
