    I have been working at Zumiez part-time for more than 3 years

    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

    I have been working at Zumiez part-time for less than a year

    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.
