Pros

The people you work with are AWESOME! We have a ton of fun, nothing is taken too seriously, get to listen to our own music and have a good time. Zumiez offers a ton of contests where you can win giftcards, prizes and trips! Opportunity to be promoted in the company is there for anyone who is willing to take the challenge.

Cons

It is exhausting to be in a high pressure selling environment for long periods of time. Sometimes I get very tired of talking to people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep being awesome! Don't be too by the book.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lol. If the management were smart enough to understand the advice. Hmmm. Zumiez is only successful because it is situated in many locations, that people shop in and it keeps its overheads low by stealing from and underpaying its employees. If a stronger more organized retailer should tackle zumiez head on and offer similar or better products. Zumiez would go by the way of the dodo
