    poor work environment, poor hours, you’ll start off by only working 3-6 hours a week, favoritism, too much personal talks, more of a high school job

    Friendly workers, quick paced environment, always something to do not boring

    Sales goals were sometimes unreasonable but it was fine if you could not reach them, must work quickly, must be okay with rudeness from customers

    Former Employee - Sales Associate 
    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Pacific Sunwear part-time

    Pros

    It was easy to make sales and perform the required duties.

    Cons

    Most employees didn't last for more than a few weeks and there was a constant stream of new faces and people coming in to work. Made it very difficult to build relationships and also showed employees were interchangeable.
