I worked at Pacific Sunwear full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great benefits, bonus program, fun place to work, you learn a lot about selling and product knowledge.

Cons

Upper management plays favorites, you have to be an aggressive seller, not all employees are treated the same, no support when needed from upper management, long hours, poor communication from company directives, need to update computer software to be competitive with other retailers, high amounts of workload with little to no payroll hours to support, as a result sales would suffer because you have to meet workload deadlines and still make sales at the same
time.

Advice to Management

Upgrade the shipment acceptance procedure for higher efficiency, when adding more work (ie. window updates, merchandising moves) more hours should be given to complete in a timely manner.

    I have been working at Pacific Sunwear full-time

    Pros

    -Encouraged to act like store owners at all levels
    -Current regional and District managers have direction and focus
    -Fantastic store teams and co-workers

    Cons

    -The company used to believe in work/life balance, and seems to have gotten away from that.
    -Salaries and raises have deteriorated over the years.
    -Too much workload is expected while giving less and less hours to get it done

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your store teams more, because they are face of the company to the consumer. If your store staffs are stressed and running around it takes away from the customer experience.
