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

    Pros

    The ability to skate around the office was rad, especially at the new HQ office.

    Lot's of free booze on company outings, These people drink which can be fun.

    It is nice to know you are working for a leader in the industry.

    Cons

    Office politics are exactly like highschool.

    It is very much a popularity contest here. Very little clear direction for creatives, and senseless changes on every project all the way up the management chain.

    It is almost like every manager has to put his opinion and 2 cents in so they feel as if they are doing their job or something. It is one thing to be detailed and over examine big projects, but having 15 revisions for something that will be up online for 2 weeks is a waste of time and just ads stress.

    There isn't trust on an tasks. The management really likes to hold your hand and use you as a tool.

    All in all if you want to be a tool or are the cool kid in highschool come join us!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees, that they will do the best job. Using us just as tools will only get you so far and leave us bitter.
