Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Thousand Oaks, CA – January 16, 2019
As a sales associate my responsibility was to greet customers, organize shelves, do go backs, and perform opening and closing duties. I learned how to be more comfortable interacting with customers and how to communicate more efficiently. The hardest part of the job was that PacSun lacked a strong management to build the work schedule. It was hard to time manage when they were not cooperative with my work schedule. Overall, the experience taught me skills that I will be able to incorporate in my professional life.
This was my first job when i was 16, i love it! My coworkers are so much fun, and the people you got to meet through this job were so cool. BUT since it’s at the mall, i never got very many shifts, so i got a second job. But overall it’s amazing!

I really liked working at pacsun because its a bunch of young people that share the same type of style and interest as you. However, since the management team is young, it can get messy. For example, they'll schedule you for one day then change it without letting you know .

My coworkers know how to make a shift enjoyable, even if we have to work hard on something all day. My management is extremely flexible and understanding of my schedule. I am a college student who likes to travel a lot, especially when I need to go see my family in Massachusetts.
Asociado de ventas (Former Employee) – Bayamón, PR – January 8, 2019
Lo mas que me gusto de trabajar en PacSun fue la experiencia de trabajar como asociado de ventas por primera vez. Durante este periodo de tiempo me di cuenta que tengo un muy buen potencial para impulsar ventas.
A typical day at Pacsun will include a lot of folding, talking, and checking people out at the register. The job is very easy as long as your putting effort into helping the customers and keeping a neat store. The job can be very fun when it’s really busy and it could be boring when its a slow day. There really isn’t a hard part about the job unless your shy and don’t really talk to people, but after about a week you would have bust out of your shell.
Inside the mall, flexible hours, and a open dress code.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – St. Peters, MO – January 3, 2019
Toxic work Environment No respect for employees No training on registers No training as to where clothes go or how to fold them Almost never clean Managers are always on their phones while employees are doing most of the work
Retail Worker (Former Employee) – Albany, NY – January 3, 2019
The position given was enough to keep me. Decent pay, flexible schedule and pretty understanding with with my hours. However, the work environment grew inclusive over time, and I found it to be detrimental in the work place.
I spent a long time here, thinking it would improve.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Dulles, VA – January 1, 2019
I rode the wave of the "old" Pacsun and the "new" Pacsun. I appreciated both cultures. I did not, however, appreciate the CEO turnover, and the lack of attention to employee needs. I was overworked and I actually quit one morning when the CEO blew our meeting off that I had prepared for night and day for a month.
Worked there for a month while in high school. Hectic job when many people shop in the store and no time to sit around. You are either folding clothes that people throw around or checking out customers.
