Pros

-Retail Experience
-Totally Chill
-Discounts
-People you will encounter
-Sales approach that's the best in the game.
Working at Zumiez is pure fun. The vibe in the store is amazing and the employees are all cool people. ALL the employees genuinely love there job even though there pay isn't fantastic. No one there is an ass, The manager's at the Sawgrass Mills Mall location actually DO there job and want to see the store/company succeed.

Cons

-Store's always a mess in some way shape or form (But from a different perspective benefits for its laid back persona)
- Obviously pay (Mainly for manager's though)
There are if anything none or little cons because that's what makes Zumiez well Zumiez, It's cons.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clean the store up just a bit and stay awesome guys.

    Pros

    Discounts are probably the best part about working here, proforms etc. Discount percentage changes with each job title, 25% for sale associates up to 50% for store managers. Opportunities to go on cool trips as a reward for sales performance. Commission given for sales over $100. Really cool relaxed culture.

    Cons

    The pay sucks, but discounts and commission kind of make up for it especially if you are good at selling. Been working at different locations for over 2 years and have never seen anyone get a raise. You usually don't get a lot of hours unless you are an assistant manager. Not much upward movement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a lot of really bad managers at the store level and should focus more on promoting people from with in the company.

    Pros

    You could network at the right locations, but those are few and far between.

    Cons

    Low pay, bad benefits, and no sense of accountability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time on your in-store management (training, development, etc.). More corporate exposure shows you actually care about the people that are making your salary.
