Featured Review

Former Employee - Sales Associate

I worked at Pacific Sunwear part-time for less than a year

Pros

The people that one gets to work with are super chill typically, but also hardworking. A good learning experience if you are trying to learn how to sale product, or up sale. At least when I used to... work there the discount for clothing for employee was good. Idk now because its been a while.

Cons

The thing that I wasn't to happy was the pay, and the hours they can give u to work. If one isn't getting a good pay and is not doing a good amount of hours per week, You might be struggling to get... by with there paycheck. Is not sustainable long term. If YOU are young and live with ur parents or pay less than 200 a month for where u live, then its not bad. Florida being the state that is not stoping rent prices from spiking, is not a great job to have due to pay. Also considering I was a top seller at the store, back then there wasn't commission, idk now but I doubt they are paying the top performers any good commission. Obviously as a part time, u don't get any benefits (health, 401k etc.) But the only open positions for full time were manager positions and the pay wasn't waw either. If u want a job to gain experience this is a good one, but eventually you wanna move on to a better pay for a better balance in life.

Advice to Management

Managers were friendly, personable, willing to help you & work with you with schedule if you studied or had other personal matters to attend to.
