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

    Pros

    +Worked in a factory store that had AMAZING discounts on everything
    +CFL's- we had awesome regulars that would just stop by to chat
    +Pay was decent to the area
    +Some employees were awesome

    Cons

    -Store that I worked in closed, only giving us 2 weeks to cease and desist
    -Upper management not taking complaints seriously
    -Lack of communication between Store Management and Upper Management
    -No corrective action taken against employees, especially those that have habitual problems and have been spoken to many a times.
    -Closed over 30 stores in less than 3 months.
    -Declared Bankruptcy

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to go back to their roots. Invest in the stores that are currently open and don't get crazy opening new stores with a concept that just may not work in the future. Do not invest in product that may not work and don't buy huge amounts of product that wont sell. Communicate effectively with your teams that are in the store, they are the face of the company!!
