PacSun

Store Manager (Former Employee) Houston, TX

ProsStylish staff, friendly regional managers, decent work ethics, and on trend deigns on both store front and clothing carried.

ConsDefinitely a little unorganized. They have began shutting down the "original" stores which are what PacSun grew from! They closed down my store which was one of the first 50 stores ever opened.. The refresh stores are small, cramped, and over packed with racks and tables. They also usually only hire under the age of 25 (IMO, I have never seen anyone over 25 working in the 3 stores I worked for) If you are over that age, do not even bother. The managers are trained to have a young, hip staff, which means are 16-20 years old and with no retail experience. Do not expect high of the staff as they are all usually new to the retail industry. Everyone associate that worked at my store (I was the manager) was under 20. I was the store manager at 18 years old. They are also very stringent on pay and overtime. If you go over your hours, you are cut the following week to make up for the money they lost having to pay you extra. As compared to other retail stores, you will not make as much as an associate elsewhere.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Terrible experience

    Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee) Providence, RI

    I have been working at Pacific Sunwear full-time for more than a year


    Pros: None really. Overall a terrible experience. Upper management is not supportive and can be harsh with expectations and criticism. The only… 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… Advice to Senior Management: Upper management should be more invested in their employees happiness… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
