    Pros

    Zumiez is a great place to work with good people and leadership. the company continues to grow and provide opportunities to it's employees. Great work culture.

    Cons

    Compensation tends to be on the low side. There seems to be much more drama due to the relatively young age of the average employee.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you are doing. The company really works hard to make people better and is open to ideas from all individuals.

    Pros

    You are given the opportunity to not just be part of the team, but you learn valuable skills that help you grow and further your skills in retail which also help to teach you how to adapt to any work environment.

    Cons

    Downside is the occasional rude customer but that is something that happens at every business.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on helping your team grow in their sales rather than focusing on just your numbers and sales.

    Pros

    Great people, fun environment, and never a dull day. A company that has experienced rapid growth over the past decade, and has opened the doors to many opportunities.

    Cons

    Management tends to play favorites. Not the best of strategies, especially when it comes to retaining talented people. When promotions and benefit increases find their way to those who have not achieved or contributed nearly that much as others around them, problems surface.

    Advice to Management

    Reward merit....not suck-ups.

    Pros

    The people and product are great. Empowered to make your own business decisions. Great teaching and learning tools. Company invests in training trips for employees. Recognition for sales, 100K party. One of the few retail stores that offer commission.

    Cons

    Low salary. Not truly salary, it's hourly with "overtime premium base" added. I live in California, the cost of living is raising and I don't get paid enough.
