Pros: Discount on clothing, Ability to wear fashionable clothing
Cons: Unstable and fluctuating schedule
At PacSun, my position entailed various skills involving clothing, such as folding clothes, arranging table displays, offering advice to customers based on their needs. At this location, I learned how to operate a cash register. I also was trained in the latest trends and fashions. The management was sub par when it came to scheduling. The schedule was never planned correctly and often changed day by day which hindered my ability to be punctual and be present at my scheduled shifts as the schedule was different from what I knew to be the schedule for that week. My coworkers were very pleasant and we got along very well, which lead to increased productivity due to the fun banter shared between associates. The hardest part of the job was the language barrier between myself and the French Canadian tourists. I do not speak French, thus it was difficult for me to properly communicate. The most enjoyable part of the job was the fun atmosphere due to my coworkers. Another enjoyable part was getting to interact with customers that were as passionate about trends and fashions as I am.
