If you’re into beach, sun, and or surf then you’ve probably heard of the Quiksilver brand of clothing and accessories. This company was founded in the early 1970’s in Torquay, Australia.
Today the company headquarters are based out of Huntington Beach, California and they have become the largest manufacture of surfwear and boardsport-related equipment. While they used to cater mainly to the men, today they have an entire line of clothing dedicated to catching the adventurous women’s spirit.
The company started out with Alan Green’s new design for board shorts. He decided to incorporate some of the wetsuit technology into the shorts.
Things like Velcro flies and snaps weren’t generally used on regular swim wear and surfers don’t necessarily want to weight themselves down with restrictive feeling wetsuits. Since then they have moved into making all sorts of athletic wear. Generally they tend to gear their wears and accessories towards the board related sports such as surfing, skateboarding, and snowboarding.
Working at Quiksilver will give you that feeling like you’re working along the beach because you will most likely be dressed in their surf and shorts style clothing. In their retail stores you be selling their clothes and many accessories there such as shoes, sandals, handbags, sports bags, and boards. They also sponsor several athletes and the Quiksilver charity.
As with many clothing stores you can be employed by this group in one of their many retail sales locations, over 600 stores worldwide.
But like many of these companies that’s not the only way you can be successful. If computers are your thing they have their own IT department which is responsible for all their Information Technology including in house systems and websites.
Because this is a specialty store you might want to have a working knowledge of some of board sports that they specialize in. It might not be a requirement but it sure will help you if you are working the floor and have customers with questions.< Quiksilver job benefits for qualified employees include:
- vision care

- paid vacation
- holiday pay

Sales associates get to walk around in surf casual wear which definitely comes in handy during hot summer months. This company has a global presence so working for them you can rest assured that you’ll be well taken care of. Get started on a great career move!
