    Retail Sales Associate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Wet Seal (Las Vegas, NV) in June 2015.

    Interview

    It would be best if you are a fan and/or a customer at Wet Seal. But overall, the interviewing process was very nice. It was mostly about remembering times where you did something good. Such as accomplishments, diversity, and how you dealt with a difficult situation. My advice is to think about it and always end it with something you can change or how it became positive. Remember to smile, express why you love Wet Seal and talk about how great their service is. Also, ask questions to your interviewer. Ask about what the job requires, things like that. Have CONFIDENCE and sell yourself. Let them know that you are a hard worker and love to learn new things. I did not have any retail experience before but if you let them know that you are eager to learn how to sell, it will impress them. Good luck!

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Wet Seal (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online, then got called about a month later for an interview. Got a call a week after from the manager that I got the job. It was a group interview, and two managers were doing the interviewing. I can't stress the fact to ask at least one question about the position you are applying for, and have an adequate answer for each question asked. If a manager asks, "would you like to add anything/anymore questions?" It really means, say something more so I know you're interested.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wet Seal (Las Vegas, NV).

    Interview

    Took about 2 weeks. Very simple , basic questions you'd get at any interview. Manager was very laid back although the pace of the store was very slow, being seasonal i did not get to work a lot though. Seems like the schedule was based merely on favorites.

    Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wet Seal (The Woodlands, TX) in February 2015.

    Interview

    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!

    Reasons for Declining

    The only offered me 7.60 an hour part time for only a few months of retail experience. I had to decline, I have a child and bills and 7.60 an hour is nothing!

    Interview

    Went in about twenty minutes early and was told the manager was not in yet so I waited. And waited. And waited. Finally she decided she was off her lunch break and took me into the back room and interviewed me while sounding very bored and very disinterested.
