    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Wet Seal.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. I got a call 2-3 weeks later for an interview. The interview went well and the questions were easy. The manager was very nice. After I had my interview, it was less than a week until I got a call saying I was hired and to come in on a certain day to do paperwork. It was my first job, so that was a good news. After doing my paperwork, they gave me my schedule and talked more about how the company.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Wet Seal in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewing for a part time position. I had to apply several times and constantly call the store before getting a call back but however when I did I did a 15 minute phone interview which was just asking about my availability and why I want to work at wet seal. After that I was invited for a sit down interview a few days later where we discussed work history and what they are looking for. After a week pasted I received a call offering me only $7.60 per hour because I only had a few months of previous work experience. The manager was nice and we spoke about how they promote from within the company a lot which is great but pay is way too low!

    First interview was a phone call, went very well.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Wet Seal.

    Interview Details

    Applied when there was still paper applications. Manager called a couple days later asking to come in for interview. She admired that I had clothes in the similar style of clothing (which helped because I was 10-minutes late). Asked the typical questions, but knew I was entry level so the questions were limited. My most typical answer was "Just smile, and it puts customers at ease". She didn't seem to mind and we're very close now.

    Interview Questions
    • What is a challenge that you've faced and how did you overcome it?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    She asked my pay during the interview, which I was okay with before the offer. If you are a seasonal hire, they will be watching you closely after the holiday season is over and see if you can get on board as a regular hire afterwards.

    Interview Details

    After 2 days applying online I got a phone call and had a short phone intrview basically asking about why i wanted to work there,my availability and etc. I was told in two days or a week I might jear back for a face to face interview. The next day I got the call and scheduled a interview.
    We went to the backroom and the interview lasted 10 to 15 minutes. I could tell the manager didn't seem to care much though because as the interview went she just seemed uninterested.
