I worked at Pacific Sunwear

Pros

My favorite thing about working at Pac was the atmosphere. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. Customers genuinely feel valued, and the employees really get along well.

Cons

There aren't always a ton of hours available. If you're a high school student looking to pick up a few shifts a week and some job experience, it's a good deal, but if you're trying to make more than just some spending money, I don't know how well it would work for you.

    Pros

    None really. Overall a terrible experience. Upper management is not supportive and can be harsh with expectations and criticism. The only pro was that the company used to pay pretty well but has started to cut back and become more frugal with salaries.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations, non supportive upper management. Management is basically forced to work 40+ hours, some off the clock just to get everything done. Payroll is always a problem. Floorsets and window changes are intensive, many times requiring carpentry skills. Stores with all female staff struggle with building and even just lifting all the heavy display props.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should be more invested in their employees happiness within the workplace. Happy employees generate better sales.

    The management is horrible. All they care about is making money which is good. But there is soo much to being a manager.

    Making profit is good. But having a good team, good bond, great merchandisers, good leadership, role models are essential to be able to run a good store. Check your teams and get quality people.
