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

    Pros

    Management was patient while I trained even though it was approaching black Friday. Coworkers were all nice and have worked together for a long time. No complaints.

    Cons

    Not much space to work when there are rushes of people. Many cases of theft/Bags must be checked upon entering and leaving store as an employee. Clothing was never tagged correctly.

    Advice to Management

    Management was great.

    Pros

    You have 50% discount on certain brands and the people are cool to work with.

    Cons

    As an associate you only work part-time and they dont give out raises as often, unless you are becoming an assistant manager or store manager.

    Advice to Management

    apply if it's your first job otherwise nah, only if you want to become an associate.

    I worked at Pacific Sunwear part-time

    Pros

    I worked with a great staff of management for 3+ years at the Parks Mall in Arlington. While the hours were somewhat demanding for a high school student, it was a great experience for my first job.

    Cons

    Pay was minimum wage, and despite being a dependable employee with top sales, I never got the raise I deserved.

    Advice to Management

    Show more appreciation to employees that stick around for more than a year. Retail industry seems to have high turnover, reward those that are loyal.
