    I worked at Zumiez part-time

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere, cool managers, great products. I loved this job until my schedule got too busy to keep working weekends.

    Cons

    You get hours based on how much you sell, which is tough and starts to feel a bit unethical when you're dealing with teenagers who come in with a small allowance and you have to get them to buy at least three items and spend at least $100.

    Advice to Management

    A different way to assign shifts would make a certain kind of employee feel better about pushing customers to spend, spend, spend.
