Most fun I've ever had at work, but corporate changes lost the Aloha.
ASSISTANT STORE MANAGER (Former Employee) – California – July 10, 2018
I learned so much from working at Quik. They encourage promotion from within the company rather than outside hires, and their mission revolves around Aloha, or creating a family vibe for employees and customers alike. After their bankruptcy, however, the changes up top were so dramatic that there were very few "leaders" that even knew what the company was about or even stood for. Some corporate "leaders" were there for less than a year, despite imposing drastic changes to the daily operations. Shortly before our store closed, it seemed that gone was the Aloha mentality to be replaced by just your average corporate structure. One huge misstep was when product shipments were cut off from Outlet stores for MONTHS leaving them with little to no product. This caused a nightmare for trying to make sales goals, and it ended up being the main reason for our location closing. Maybe they learned from their mistake and will make improvements. I will say, though, that I made some life-long friendships in that store, and for that I will be forever grateful.
Amazing people to work with, great in store vibe, awesome products to sell
Corporate disorganization and poor communication
