My time at Hurley was fun and a great learning experience. While the work could be quite mundane sometimes (as all retail stores can be) the people that worked there were fun and the customers were pleasant.
Fun environment, however limited room for upward movement within the company.
Management (Former Employee) – Texas – January 12, 2017
Great workplace but it comes with a glass ceiling. Upward movement is limited to having someone above you resign. Choices made for those who are moved up are heavily based on subjective opinion as opposed to the work one puts in, their qualifications, and successes shown through hard numbers and financial results. Employees are often led on to thinking they will receive advancement in order to keep them in the company and working to par but in the truth are often seen as expendable. A great place to work for someone in their early 20s looking for a fun, flexible job to segway into a career. Upper managememt, especially the area manager of Texas, is highly deceptive, unprofessional, and condescending to the employees under her.
Fun environment, flexible scheduling
Limited room for growth, under qualified/competent upper management
Inpatient and ER Coder (Former Employee) – Flint, MI – October 12, 2016
Unfortunately I was terminated from Hurley but I still believe it to be the best place I have ever worked for. The pay was good, the benefits were awesome, my peers were excellent to work with. Management in the beginning was fair and I loved that. Now management have there favorites and I guess I wasn't one of them!
ASSISTANT CONTROLLER (Current Employee) – Flint, MI – March 16, 2016
manage cash, general ledger and financials I learned a lot about the medical field. I enjoy going to work everyday. Everyday is a the same but yet different. My coworkers are wonderful and the hardest part of my day is just trying to leave.
hurley is an awesome place to work. Very laid back and very diverse company.All the people that i work with are very respectful really cool people we get along like a family. I've learned to be patient with the customers because they do not speak any english whatsoever. We have fun with them because all the tourists are super friendly. The hardest part of the job would have to be the short hours that they give on a work day. Management is very good. I would recommend people to work there.
laid back, young team members & management. Easy Work.

Runner/Clerk (Current Employee) – Lubbock, TX – June 5, 2015
Working here has allowed me to see the in and out of criminal defense. Hardest part of the job is when big cases come around and you are running around trying to fill needs to make the attorneys life easier.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – West Palm Beach, FL – February 5, 2015
A typical day at work was the same, very slow & boring. They were so worried about having a decent conversion rather than anything else. They hassled us to be overly friendly with the customers even after a customer would tell us "oh, no i dont need any help. im just looking.", in all honesty who really wants someone in their face 24/7 while shopping asking them over & over if they "need help". The hardest part of the job was dealing with the managers talking to you like you're a little kid, telling you how to do something. The most enjoyable part of the job was the coworkers, they were in my age group (20-23) & understood my pain lol.
Ever changing, challenging, competitive, and team work.
Grassroots Event Marketing Manager (Current Employee) – Costa Mesa, CA – December 23, 2014
There is no such thing as a typical day at Hurley in the marketing department. There is always something different to be done and a different time period it needs to be done in. Priorities and a necessity for a successful employee. The management team is second to none and always push everyone to be the best they can be and better. My co-workers are always willing to lend a helping hand, as am I, when a "fire drill" comes up and something needs to have happened yesterday. The hardest part of the job is getting pulled in so many different directions, not only do I plan events but I also work with sports marketing and the surf team managers, the social media team, and the photo shoot team as a model. The most enjoyable part, for me is the opportunity to travel and work from different locals around the world.
Benefits, health care, culture, my co-workers, traveling, ability to participate in extracurricular hobbies during work
the lack of communication between the executives and the marketing team, the ever changing working environment
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Camarillo, Ca – May 20, 2014
My responsibilities while working as a sales associate at Hurley ranged from customer service, the ability to work within a team oriented aspect, and the ability to work in a highly fast paced environment. Management here is amazing. They do their best to teach you just about everything they know, so that you can become an expert upon the products you are trying to sell. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to experience Hurley as a culture, and the least enjoyable part was the lack of the ability to get promoted quickly because the ranks within the store are pretty much set.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – March 9, 2014
I love working here. The people are friendly, including those people that visit the store from corporate! The only thing is that management is not all that great. The manager favors, there are NO advancements whatsoever, unless someone that has a higher position quits.
You are not recognized if you perform good, employee on the month is based off of voting by the team members, who hardly even see each other. Works hours are terrible.
However, the company is very flexible with school schedules. Co-workers are really nice.
Bonuses if you perform on quota, fun people, nice work environment.
