    I worked at Zumiez part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    its a great place to work. My co workers were really cool and easy to approach and have a conversation with. A necessity for being a good employee here.

    Cons

    I didn't really like how we competed for sales. For example, whoever sold the most in the week gets the most hours. Makes sense, but I would have rather it been handled differently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not to over hire so more sales associates can have more hours.

    Second Assistant/Keyholder Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Zumiez.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very basic. This is a job targeted towards kids so it isn't difficult. They have you answer questions one might think is silly but there is a reason for it. If you move on to a second interview it is with a group where you are competing against them essentially. You have to be able to think on your feet and answer open ended questions. The culture is fun but competitive.

    The pay will pretty much be the same for everyone. The more you sell the more you make.
