    Pros

    This was the coolest internship ever! The company is so great and takes great care of its employees. I was only there a few months and it's cool to see how the company is rapidly coming back after bankruptcy. Employees are great and really relaxed. They know how to have fun :)

    Cons

    Not any- maybe paid internships once the company is fully recovered? But even the lack of pay is so worth it!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up caring so well for your employees!

    Pros

    You are treated like family. Many perks like insane discounts on clothing and 30% off 3rd items. Discount of ski lift tickets. Flexible hours so if you are in school then it's great.

    Cons

    It depends on what location you work for but it can be kind of slow and boring. The pay is low but it's also retail

    I worked at Quiksilver full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I was fortunate to have former big4 employees mentor in training and promoted from within was my experience. For 8.5 years started as a entry level clerk; exiting as a first Manager for 6 years.
     No degree high school diploma only! I am truly grateful and make decent money as a result.

    Cons

    My perceptive was lack of communication within departments from director to manager went rolled down hill from there. The turn over also made it nearly impossible to know or pin point
    who reported to who and/or in what department / division.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to bring one person from every level of the department into meetings when implementations and/or system upgrades are being talked about. Their input is just as valuable as the Lead Supervisor and / or managers it would help in every aspect to hear from all perspectives.
