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

    Pros

    Awesome environment, laid back but still kept busy. It's a good discipline retail job because it definitely tires you out. I have a great team of people.

    Cons

    Won't pay any associate above minimum wage, won't make anyone aside from managers full time. No commission. You get maybe 10 hours a week. Maybe. Mostly because you'll be guaranteed a 5 hour shift, and then you'll be on call for another 5 hour shift wherein they may or may not even need you to come in.

    Advice to Management

    Hire less employees so you can have more full timers and make the job with it. Stop with this on-call nonsense.

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

    Pros

    The discount was really nice, but that's it.

    Cons

    They only hired minors so no one could close except for the 3 18 year old's so one of us was always forced to even on our days off.
    They scheduled me out of availability sometimes and that always caused problems.
    Terrible pay for the work you're actually doing.

    Advice to Management

    Hire less minors and more 18+ year olds for overnights and closing.
