I worked at Zumiez part-time for less than a year

Pros

The employee discount is decent for people who need snowboarding equipment, etc. and you can
meet cool people on the job.

Cons

The pay is really terrible. They make you fight for sales and it becomes a competition. They threaten to lower your hours if you do not reach quota. They force you to hound down each customer that comes in and try to "up-sell" to them. It makes me feel like a nuisance.

    3- The management (atleast at tysons) was awful, the staff was drama ridden and it destroyed my experience and many others

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Zumiez full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are great opportunities to party a few times a year with professional riders.

    Cons

    You don't get paid for all the hours you work. You get yelled at daily, for things that happened on your days off. There is no real disciplinary actions for those who deserve it.
