    I worked at Pacific Sunwear part-time

    Pros

    They will hire you even if you have no previous sales experience. They give you a decent employee discount.

    Cons

    Did not train me on how to do anything, so they just placed me in the front of the store to walk around and say hi to people as they walked in. Never thought me anything else so I was very confused when scheduled for an overnight stocking shift.


  3. "Hectic Environment"

    2.0
    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.

    I worked at Pacific Sunwear part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There's an employee discount, which is good if you like shopping at PacSun.

    Cons

    The location I worked at had bad management and also was apparently one of the worst performing locations and it was not hard to believe. I had to work long hours even off the clock while making bare minimum wage while my coworkers would often slack off and the employee who was appointed to lead and close with us would just be on her phone relaxing while giving orders. Overall terrible experience, but hopefully that was just my location.

    Former Employee - Sales Associate 

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

    Pros

    Definitely a great first job to get out of your comfort shell to build communication skills. Awesome coworkers and employee discount was great!

    Cons

    Not given enough hours some weeks, wages were low, no raises were given.

  7. "Bad Company Culture"

    2.0

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Pacific Sunwear part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good employee discounts on the clothing.

    Cons

    Part-time employees were treated like full-time workers who made commissions off of the sales (which we did not). It was an overly competitive environment that felt like you could be fire or written up at any time for a small infraction.
