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

Pros

The discount was probably the best part of the job. It was a cool story and they had good product. It was also kept relatively clean and organized even during peak hours.

Cons

I only worked three hour shifts and they were few and far between. Also, I did not like the selling aspect of the store because they were incredibly pushy and it made my customers uncomfortable.

Advice to Management

Do not hire more employees than you are able to take on and do not be so detached from reality that you think that customers want to be bothered during the entire duration of their shopping experience. It was excessive and drove out just as many customers as it dragged it.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Pacific Sunwear full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    PacSun takes value in their employees. I have learned a lot over the years and gained valuable customer service experience.

    Cons

    The management team stands near the entry hallway after work to say goodbye to all the lower level employees. It is uncomfortable at times.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of saying goodbye after work in a group huddle to the lower levels associates, ask questions during work to make things better. Manage by walking around through being personable and taking initiative to continually improve.


  2. "Typical Retail Store"
