I have been working at Pacific Sunwear full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

great staff throughout company, great employee discount, enjoyable experience overall

Cons

heavy, almost unrealistic demands sent down from HQ. recently began alot of store work involving construction and use of powertools. not the best ideas for some places staffed with a full female management team...i.e. lifting 40lb 5x5 wooden boards 15 feet in the air. payrate does not match work expectations. spent the better part of a decade with the company and get absolutely NO feedback on my career growth/opportunities. very disappointing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Good teams and fun atmosphere.

    Cons

    You are asked to finish projects that require more time then you are given. As a store manager be prepared to work 60+ hours a week while only be paid for 40.

    Move on!

    I worked at Pacific Sunwear full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The discount, co-workers, clothing, and most of the customers.

    Cons

    I was told I need to work 10 hour days and 6 days a week ( Minimum) got fried because I am a single mom and can not work 60+ hours a week. They have very unrealistic expectations. $50 ADS when the economy is down and customers are not spending. You have no hours to complete any tasks. You have to have 8 arms to do what needs to be done. There is no work life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what the Field is telling you. We are on the front lines and we know what works and what doesn't.
