      Pros

      I always felt like zumiez as a company cares about their employees. I was treated well when I worked there and liked what I saw in the employee handbook. I never had any bad experiences working there. I'm a skater so this was a great place to learn more about skating and to get new gear, since the employee discount was pretty nice (25% for SA)

      Cons

      Job didnt pay very well Inconsistent hours Zumiez policy is that you must aim to sign up a minimum number of people for the "stash" reward program per shift.

      If you're willing to work for it, you'll get it!

      Pros

      Zumiez is a competitive working environment, while rewarding it's employees and being team motivated. If you put in the hard work for this company, it will work just as hard for you! They are ALWAYS improving and moving forward. This is probably the most underrated relate store! Zumiez is constantly adapting, growing and expanding in every way. Whether it's; social injustice, climate change, women's rights, or mental health awareness, Zumiez has gotten involved in it all.

      Cons

      Your leaders and those above you, really really matter. If you don't have a good SM, DM, and/or RM, your journey with this company may be rocky. You're going in blind with your leaders if you don't know the expectations they should be held to. You will also see very few females in higher positions. This is obviously a male dominant company because of the products that are sold, as well as skateboarding being a very male dominant sport. While it's not a rare opportunity for a female to get a higher/leading position, it's very clear the higher up in the hierarchy you go, the less females you see.

      Pros

      People and discount were fun. It’s a good for high school students that mostly just wanna work during summer and winter break. Great seasonal job.

      Cons

      Not reliable hours. Many times hours dropped to four hours a week which is expected after holidays but many sales associates had to get second jobs. It does not provide a living wage for someone that is trying to pay bills and in college.

      Pros

      It's a great company to work for in terms of managerial training, company culture, and non-monetary perks.

      Cons

      Often difficult to get fair market compensation due to their value on non-monetary perks. Employees were often recognized with events or clothing perks in place of higher pay.
