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.

    Pros

    Fun and exciting place to work. Main focuses are continuous improvement both production and people wise. If you are looking for a place to challenge you professionally and a place that is willing to support your ideas then this is a place for you! We're like family here.

    Cons

    Warehouse conditions are uncomfortable at times (depending on the season). If you have allergies or asthma or can't stand too much heat or cold then do not work here. Pay is lower than most warehouses. Seasons at times slow down to 20 a wk.

    Advice to Management

    Work on making the working environment a little better for the people. Walking from the outside to the inside in extreme weather during the summer and winter season really does a number of people. The dust is horrible!


  2. Became a stressfull place to work in.

    Pros

    They have good discounts and its a fun atmosphere to work in.

    Cons

    Too much pressure on the employees from store managers. They need to help uneffective employees before threatening their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Train your store managers how to help their employees make their quotas.
