    Pros

    Chill, laid back environment.

    Cons

    The pay was terrible and there was no yearly raise. I worked there for about a year and a half and never got even a quarter raise.

    Advice to Management

    More care for the employees, rather than where a shirt is placed.

    I worked at Pacific Sunwear full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I loved the atmosphere and the clothes. Had a decent structure for developing staff members.

    Cons

    Ridiculous time expectations. As a salaried employee, I was expected to ALWAYS be there. There was no work-life balance.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, great atmosphere, enjoyable experience, up to date fashion trends, great employee discount, easy to learn the ropes of the position.

    Cons

    A LOT, of work, can be stressful at times, its retail you will have to deal with a lot of rude customers, more or less depending on the area you work in.

    Advice to Management

    Eat before you come to work, get a good nights rest before work, plan your work day a day ahead if you can.
