Sales
in Glendale, CA

"I had worked for Pacific Sunwear for the duration of a year and a half and found it to be quite simple. It was very easy for me to dive into customer service and become a top salesman during my time. During the time I was a representative for Primative Clothing and would receive merchandise to help boost sales. I found it to be a staple in my personal life as it helped with communication skills. I never moved up from sales during my time there, but I found it to be exceptional because I was the top salesman, and getting a promotion would not benefit the company."

"I had a contract assignment at Pacific Sunwear and was there for a total of 2 weeks. I really enjoyed the culture and felt I had good chemistry with my team. I felt as though there were some recent exciting developments and that the company had a good direction going forward despite some recent setbacks. The culture was the best I'd experienced thus far in my career."

"PacSun is an amazing company to work for. It is a very fun and productive environment. I was excited to go to work every day. They have a full basketball court, a small gym, a delicious cafe, ping-pong and pool tables everywhere, etc. Also, the dress is casual; almost everyone dresses in a t-shirt and shorts. I highly recommend working for PacSun!"
