Fun and Productive workplace with a laid back team
Associate (Former Employee) – Cerritos, CA – August 13, 2018
I would go into work and start greeting customers, and folding clothes. I learned how retail works and how to sell certain items to customers. When I first started working at Pacsun, the management was horrible, but about 4 months in, the management got better and people actually enjoyed going to work. Whenever I worked at Pacsun, I knew that it would be an easy going day because of the way our store was ran. We did not really stick to our sections, but instead bounced around the store and helped out wherever we were needed. I would say the hardest part of working was closing, because the store would be difficult to recover.

A typical day at Pacsun consisted of hanging up cloths and helping customers with finding clothing items. Put sensors and setting up sales tables was a big part of my job.
Management was very nice, but she was mostly a friend than a manger figure to me. Very easy environment to work in. I was 16 at the time, so the only benefits I received is discounts on clothing.
The hardest part of the job was keeping cloths out of the changing rooms and keeping the store looking organized during open hours. I had the most enjoyable time tagging items and setting up tables to look appealing to the buyers for when we open the next day.
last i hard, pacsun was filing for bankruptcy, and it came to no surprise to me. pacsun did not believe in hiring within the company. management was a joke, and it was the most unorganized store ive ever worked for in my life. it was a fun job being a teenager, an easy high school job. bu that was all there was to it. there was no room for promotion bc no one simply cared to promote you.

My time at Pacsun has been amazing so far. Being able to create outfits for customers is awesome. Very flexible hours. Management is there to help you. Managers are leaders not bosses. Great team chemistry. Low starting pay, but easy advancement.
Managers lead team. Employees are praised for good work.

Ultimately I absolutely adored my store manager, and that is the reason I stayed so long with this company. However outside of my positive experience at my specific store, I was absolutely appalled by the mistreatment from the corporate level. The pay is absolutely disrespectful and pitiful for what they expect of their employees. This company needs a serious wake up call on how to preserve their good employees, and keep from having so much turn over in these positions that should be easily kept. Truly I've never seen anything so bias, and sad.
You are on your feet all day but when you're busy it's really hard to notice. Very chill job if you get the job done. You do need a good work ethic. A lot of 16 year olds came in thinking you could just play on your phone but you really can't. Pretty performance based.

The managers seem to change every few months due to the lack of organization and work balance. They lack the ability to sufficiently, fairly, spread hours between employees. Simply if they didn’t like you, you were not scheduled.
Lead Manager (Current Employee) – Midland, TX – August 1, 2018
I was there for little over a year as a sales lead(basically manager) I did absolutely everything a manger would do the only difference was the pay. I made $7.90 the DM tries to make it seem like you are lucky that you are getting paid that much. I keep asking I hit my year mark and my raise was $8.52. Again the DM tries to make you feel like you are "lucky" that you are getting paid that much and actually says it exactly like that. The company is not loyal to their workers at all. Pacsun use to be my favorite store and now I can't even stand to go in there. I could go into much greater detail on my terrible experience but I will save you the time. I promise do not waste your time there. (sales associates & I promise will get nothing more than minimum wage, but will be expect to excellent.
