Pros: good discount, drive for success
Cons: not anywhere enough hours for support on and off the floor, pressure like you have never felt before
PacSun is a high demand company with little support. A typical work week would allow for 180 hours. Talking to management from comparable companies like foreign exchange would come close to double that.
The CEO has great drive and vision for PacSun and is relying heavily on brand names and getting ahead of the trend. Which is awesome for the customer, but it hurts the sales team. With money being funded into the customer and marketing, cuts need to be made in other areas, specific, employees. As a PacSun manager, I was compensated well above average of other retailers. My team, however, received minimum wage. I understand entry level retail jobs should be awarded to those just entering the workforce, but several top sales associates who had been with the company for 2+ years only received a raise because of increase in minimum wage.
Upper management is good and has a good vision, but could often times steam roll ideas and belittle decisions you make. The good thing is they would come with ideas that are positive and would help solve the issue. Any corporate visits, unless everything was perfect, even after a long day and having partial coverage, would tear you apart. And if they didn't say much, you would surly hear about it later.
Overall, the company is going in a good direction, but you will more than likely be more hands on and responsible for numbers than any other company you have been with before.
