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

Pros

The employee discount is decent for people who need snowboarding equipment, etc. and you can
meet cool people on the job.

Cons

The pay is really terrible. They make you fight for sales and it becomes a competition. They threaten to lower your hours if you do not reach quota. They force you to hound down each customer that comes in and try to "up-sell" to them. It makes me feel like a nuisance.

    I have been working at Zumiez part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    trendy clothing store, discounts, commission, and cool people to work with, great customer service experience, also not too hard to get a job there if you ask at the right time
    i've worked here twice in the past 2 yrs and each time i was a seasonal employee. when i asked for the job the first time i was persistent and got a one on one interview w/ the manager. got hired on the spot. def prepped me to work fer a zumiez in a higher traffic mall later on. pretty sweettttt.

    Cons

    possible danger when getting shoes on their huge ladder... a bigger backroom would be cool.. lol... douchebag customers sometimes

    Advice to Management

    give all employees all of the information meaning selling technique packets and product guides.. thatd be cool

    stop involving your emotions in important decisions and picking favorites amongst the staff
