Advice to ManagementAdvice

If a hard working employee messes up totally by accident do not rail on them. this happen to me at zumiez once and then once at my other job. my zumiez manager handled it so well by making sure i knew it wasn't the end of the world (i hate messing up, almost cried)and it was not a big deal. she made me feel more at ease. sometimes you just miss a beat and the people i work with at zumiez understand. that experience made me appreciate my zumiez manager so much more and i have learned from that and i make sure i do not repeat my mistake. understanding your employees is a HUGE thing. you need to listen to them and never be afraid to talk to them. i have so much respect for my managers because they are calm and very understanding. there is a right and a wrong way of handling things. know your employees and you will learn what path to take.

    Pros

    trendy clothing store, discounts, commission, and cool people to work with, great customer service experience, also not too hard to get a job there if you ask at the right time
    i've worked here twice in the past 2 yrs and each time i was a seasonal employee. when i asked for the job the first time i was persistent and got a one on one interview w/ the manager. got hired on the spot. def prepped me to work fer a zumiez in a higher traffic mall later on. pretty sweettttt.

    Cons

    possible danger when getting shoes on their huge ladder... a bigger backroom would be cool.. lol... douchebag customers sometimes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give all employees all of the information meaning selling technique packets and product guides.. thatd be cool

    Pros

    They are a great company to start out with. If you are able to get in the top 1000 employees you win a trip to Colorado for a free snowboarding trip. A very fun culture of people to work with

    Cons

    Raises are not given to often and they are a very demanding company. If you do not produce the sales they will cut you
