I have been working at Pacific Sunwear

Pros

- employee discount
- buying better brands and styles of clothing

Cons

- corporate partners lack field experience as a manager (or if they do, have forgotten), therefore fails to create direction that is successfully translated and executed by the field.

- company has way to many stores across the nation but favors supplying resources and support to the southern calif. markets, yet has the same expectation of stores that don't share that same privileges.

- frequent heavy workload, no hours to execute. (only 1 person works the first half of the day and is expected to execute markdowns, transfers, shipment, promotion changes, rtvs, damages, visual changes, floorsets, window changes....on top of providing superb customer service and prevent theft)

- no passion from upper management with people development. (no on-boarding training for managers, no training hours for sales associates)

- lack of diversity

Advice to ManagementAdvice

be realistic.

show appreciation and understanding for the thousands of people who are working in the field trying to make sense out of some of the unrealistic expectations.

    Pros

    The work/life balance is pretty great as an assistant. As a store manager in a high volume store, not so much. Time and a half for all overtime when it's approved and a fun environment.

    Cons

    Heavy operational workload and not an effective or efficient planning process from corporate. Overall though, I'm happy there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Operations needs some serious improvement. Floorset, markdowns, RTVs all in one week without any additional payroll support? Doesn't work, even with the best management team. Other than the planning/execution of operations, it's a good company going in a better direction than it was.
