    Pros

    -50% discount for store managers (which was nice with such low pay)
    -100k event for top 1,000 employees
    -easy work
    -play your own music

    Cons

    -awful pay
    -impossible sales goals ($2,000 before noon, while only an average of six customers had even stepped inside. My store was between a Pac Sun and Hot Topic, and we were expected to stand outside and yell at people to get them to shop at Zumiez instead. Ten year olds with $5 in their pockets were pressured to beg their parents for more money.)
    -demanding management (again, impossible sales goals. Working every weekend and night. 40 hour weeks were just a suggestion)
    -work consumes life
    -forced to over-work your sales associates who are making an equally low pay rate

    Advice to Management

    If employees were paid more, they would actually care about work! Train store managers better and don't threaten them.
