    I have been working at Pacific Sunwear full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Incredible super supportive and available boss
    Flexibility to “own your business”
    Company is changing for the better and upper management is genuinely dedicated to making PacSun a success.

    Cons

    Inadequate payroll
    I can’t afford my bills.
    Some weeks I decide between buying groceries or doing any leisure activity to enjoy myself.

    Advice to Management

    Inadequate payroll with a heavy task load doesn’t allow you to focus on customers and complete all tasks. Having two person coverage all day would go a long way.
