Pacsun Job Application Online

Updated on January 10, 2011


Pacific Sunwear aka Pacsun is a major apparel store that specializes in skateboarding, surfing, and snowboarding clothing/accessories. Since its opening the company has established over 900 stores across America. Pacsun's popularity explosion has created the need for thousands of employees. Those interested in applying for a position with the company can look forward to working for a quality company that is showing sure signs of expansion and growth.

A great way to get started is by filling out the company's online job application. You may of course apply to Pacsun "in store" however many find that the convenience of applying online far surpasses the alternative.

Before you apply you may want to know certain details and information in regards to the application. The following information will provide you with everything you need to know about the Pacsun job application and Pacsun work place.

Getting Started

Upon logging on to Pacsun's main website you will be prompted to a homepage containing links such as news, clothing lines, and other company information. At the bottom of the page is a link entitled "careers." Click this link to search jobs in your city. The search interface allows you to choose between a variety of job positions and locations. Once you have found a location near you, click "apply/create account."

The Online Application

To apply online for a Pacsun position it is necessary to create an account with the company. Creating an account gives you the ability to save your online application and edit it in the future. This is a big advantage to you as a job searcher because even if your application is initially turned down, you will still be within the company's radar and will be able to apply for other positions and other Pacsun locations.

The application consists of your basic information, past work experience, etc. In addition to entering your basic information, you will also need to participate in the company's personality/ethics test. This consists of basic questions about your personality as well as questing presenting hypothetical situations such as: "If you saw someone stealing what would you do."

Corporate Job Positions

In addition to being able to apply online for in store Pacsun positions, you may also apply for positions at the company's corporate headquarters. This opportunity may not be available to everyone as there are only two corporate locations. These locations include Anaheim California and Olathe Kansas. Looking for corporate jobs through the company is the same process: select a position you are interested in, create an account, fill out and submit the online application. Many job positions at the company's corporate headquarter require previous training, a college degree, or past experience.

Benefits and Perks

Pacsun prides itself in taking care of their employees with many benefits and perks. In fact the company states there are "too many to name." But here are a few of the important benefits.... as an employee you will receive medical, dental, vision, life insurance, and a 401k! Employees also receive a generous store discount on purchases. Additional perks include a "casual dress code" work environment. Yes sir, no need to wear a suit to work....sandals, shorts, and a t-shirt will suffice.

Those who work at Pacsun's corporate locations will have access to the company's onsite fitness facility which include cardio equipment, weights, and more.

Pacsun Incentives Program

To encourage workers to go the extra mile, Pacsun employees are enrolled in a rewards/incentives program. The program recognizes hard workers that stand out as valuable assets to the company. The reward you receive will depend on your work output.

Interest In Applying In Person?

If you are interested in applying to Pacsun in person, direct your web browser to the company's main website and conduct a search for the nearest location in your area. Before you head down there you may want to call ahead and ask if they are hiring and inquire as to what their needs are. And as always dress nice to make a good impression.

In Closing

Pacsun is a corporate company that has gained a reputation as being a fun and laid back place to work. The company caters to a younger demographic so they will typically hire workers in the teen to mid 20's age range. If you are interested in a job position with the company I urge you to take the next step. Good luck!
