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

    Pros

    There are great opportunities to party a few times a year with professional riders.

    Cons

    You don't get paid for all the hours you work. You get yelled at daily, for things that happened on your days off. There is no real disciplinary actions for those who deserve it.
