    Pros

    When you work with great people its a good environment with music and a lot to do to keep you busy.

    Cons

    Company needs to be more organized with changes and updates.

    Advice to Management

    Take SMs off salary so they get paid for their actual hours worked when they work well over 40 hours during the busiest times of year.

    I worked at Pacific Sunwear full-time

    Pros

    Chill environment, fun staff, nice discount.

    Cons

    Horrible upper management, lack of communication, no room to grow, corporate was no help, unorganized, awful compensation, no motivation to stay.

    Pay your employees at the ground level more... especially ASM and SMs. Communication needs to be clear, and corporate needs to be of more assistance.

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

    Pros

    We get a pretty nice discount, my coworkers are really friendly, the job isn’t hard to get done, and the store has nice clothes.

    Cons

    My store is extremely messy, especially the back, and even when we organize things, somebody always messes it up. Also, the pay sucks.

    Pros

    Discount is decent, slower months are worth it. Coworkers are the biggest pro. That’s all I have but needed 20 work minimum

    Payroll is a joke, job stability is an even bigger joke. Pay is extremely lacking for sales associates all the way up.
