Pros

great opportunities to move up if you're motivated
great benefits and perks
"100K" Zumiez's President's Club
fun corporate culture

Cons

Honestly anyone who is complaining on this site about this company is clearly someone who doesn't like to work hard or work retail. I will admit they expect a lot from their employees but you would find that at any retail corporation. Hours and schedules can be difficult but again part of what to expect when you're working retail.

Advice to Management

Keep it up!

    Pros

    Great discount for store managers
    Play your own music
    Dress Code

    Cons

    Pay
    Favoritism
    DM's need some serious coaching and development
    open bar at company events leads to unprofessional ism
    Absolutely no HR department
    No Loss Prevention
    Unrealistic sales goals
    no training program
    My first day of work I was thrown into a store during tax free weekend with zero training with a seasoned store manager... with any manager really. Then I had to run my own inventory the next week. Did we even have a DM? Then when the DM finally shows his face it was a blast session about how I did not train myself or know basic store operations. That is very poor retail in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people. Train them before throwing them into a store. Coach and develop. Look into your DM's before making a un experienced toddler run 8 stores.
