  4. "Hectic Environment"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Sales Associate 

    I worked at Pacific Sunwear part-time

    Pros

    The clothes are fashionable and there are reasonable employee discounts

    Cons

    In popular locations the store can get extremely disorganized and very stressful to work in. In addition, for states with minimum wage (7.25), the work is not worth it if it is understaffed. Store was very understaffed and would take hours to clean.

  10. "Managers sacrifice too much time/money to keep their stores running smoothly"

    Former Employee - Assistant Manager in Gilroy, CA

    I worked at Pacific Sunwear full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good starting job to gain experience as an associate.

    Cons

    Corporate demands outweigh employee abilities. Working off the clock consistently. Employee turnover is HIGH. Never allotted enough hours for payroll especially during markdowns/floorset. ADS/UPT is an outdated focus for stores carrying mostly clearance, they can’t make their sales goals from previous years because their “Tier” was higher and they had more full price product. Shipment is grossly mishandled, the quantities alone are either way 2-10 boxes a week or 50-60 (not enough hours to process them either), as well as stockrooms being flooded with unprocessed inventory that has no space on the floor and can’t be transferred out. Sending managers around to other stores in the area to cover indefinitely leads to lower level managers running the show without compensation.
