    Pros

    Great environment and energy. I enjoyed the staff the I worked with while employed by Zumiez and loved that the company gave back to their employees thought 100K, rocktember and manager retreat.

    Cons

    The store attracts some unwanted types of customers. There was alot of theft and working alone in the store can be unnerving, especially when you have sketchy customers in the store. Discount could be more.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being awesome. I had some great experiencing working for the company and met some great people. Especially at couch tour.

    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.
