Former Employee - Assistant Manager in Huntsville, AL

I worked at Pacific Sunwear part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

1) For Sales Associates, the job is extremely easy.
2) Great clothes, great discount!
3) Laid back atmosphere.

Cons

1) Huge workload for management, not enough payroll to help support it.
2) There is only so far you can advance and little benefits.
3) Raises are rare, no matter how hard you work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

offer more payroll so managers can get the work done and still maintain the customer focus, not to mention work on loss prevention! Assistant managers and key holders don't get benefits and raises unless they are full-time, so changing that could enhance work performance and morale.I am leaving the company because they all of a sudden decided to close our store, leaving me with no job in a span of 3 weeks. Get it together corporate, and treat your loyal employees better.

    sometimes a very fun place to work and sometimes the most miserable place in the world

    I have been working at Pacific Sunwear part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I love the clothes so the discount is awesome. A majority of the employees are around my age (16-22) which can be fun. It's a good learning experience and looks good on my resume. My current management team is fun and easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Extremely high turnover rates - Every single managerial position has changed hands at least once if not more during my time with the company, and I am the only sales associate that has been there more than a year. Customers can be careless and disrespectful. At times the company is desperate to hire almost anyone, leading to sub-par co-workers and management (not always, just when there are few applicants).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make better benefits (discounts, etc.) available to those who have been there longest so that people don't just get hired, use discounts, and leave shortly after.
