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

Pros

- beachwear/skatewear clothing is encouraged
 - great team atmosphere both among immediate team and inter-team/inter-department
 - great use and adoption of current technology
 - onsite cafe and gym

Cons

- some upper management have very stong sense of entitlement and cannot be bothered with underlings
 - Change Management procedure is overly in-depth, to a fault

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work, keep encouraging the PacSun culture but encourage cross-department career opportunities for growth.

    I have been working at Pacific Sunwear part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company helps you grow if you want to. It's a really laid back environment and my coworkers are really friendly. Corporate started a new program called Sales Associate Productivity which is kind of like commission but not as bad. It allows our employees to work toward a sales goal and earn bonuses when they make ranks within the company. It helps them improve themselves and grow. Pacsun is really understanding when making schedules and dealing with school also.

    Cons

    It's extremely hard to get a raise. I've been working there for two years and only got one raise other than when I got promoted. corporate sends an insane amount of tasks that need to be completed at once. They don't seem to have any sense of how things work in the store. They expect you to be able to make your daily goals as well as to complete all of your tasks such as floorsets and visual updates.

    Advice to Management

    Chill on the tasking if you want us to focus on the selling basically. We can only do so much.
