First Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Stamford, CTMay 28, 2015
sell sell sell working towards making day. breaking you neck and bending over backwards to make profit. learn great up selling techniques and how to relate to a bunch of different people. management if tough, you need to make money your hours are based off you sales performance ranking. the training material on how to sell their product is very in depth and very long and extensive. overall you get to work with and meet really great down to earth laid back people.

Sales Associate (Current Employee), Missoula, MTMay 26, 2015
Pros: Multiple breaks, Fun environment
Cons: Minimal Hours
A typical day consists of showing customers merchandise, marking down various products, and generally having an enjoyable time in the atmosphere. That's what I enjoyed most about Zumiez, the atmosphere. My co-workers are easy to get along with and are very helpful whenever I am misunderstood. Management is a little difficult, but nothing that isn't manageable.

Pros: work environment.

The people you work with can make all of the difference. Everyone that worked at our store was friendly and would look out for each other. Sales were a big deal and everyone helped achieve them in any way possible.

Marketing Designer (Current Employee), Lynnwood, WAMay 14, 2015
Pros: delcious cafe located in the building and a skate park outside, and I could bring my dog to work
In the 3 months that i was contracted at Zumiez, i learned more than I had in the last 6 months of school. Everyone was extremely friendly and, while the work load was heavy from the get to, my friends and co-workers worked with me to learn the ropes quickly and efficiently.

Hardest part of the job was not going down to the cafe for snacks 4-5 times a day ... and the commute. downtown to lynnwood is a bit rough.

most enjoyable part of the job was creating things and then seeing them on the internet the following week. Super satisfying being able to see a project come full circle. Also being able to bring my dog to work made the commute a little more manageable knowing my dog wasn't at home alone for 13+ hours a day.

Store Associate (Former Employee), Tyler, TXMay 8, 2015
Pros: Discounts
Cons: less hours
A day at Zumiez was fun to work there everyday, I enjoy working with the people and helping with customers. The hardest part of working there I would have to run the store by myself without having any help doing the busiest time.
