    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Wet Seal in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied on line 2 weeks ago today and was first contacted by an Assistant Manager the following day. She spent about 10 minutes covering basic questions such as my availability and recent work experience. It was her first time doing a phone interview and I spent much of the call reassuring her. I received a call the next morning from the store manager to schedule an interview for the following week (5 days later). This interview lasted about 45 minutes and she followed up the next day. I went in later the same afternoon for the second interview. It was with another manager and lasted 30 minutes. We briefly reviewed some of the questions and covered several other scenario type questions. I was told that the store manager would follow up to set up an interview with the District Manager at the start of the week but have not heard back. The position is part time and has widely varying hours. I am more qualified for a Store Manager position so I don't expect a call back. If I were hiring for this position, I would expect an applicant such as myself to move continue interviewing and move on once they find something better suited to their goals.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time when you became annoyed with an employee because they weren't working quickly enough. Many of the questions had you describing negative experiences and encounters. They want positivism so turn the answers around to focus on the good.   Answer Question

    I called into the store and asked if they were hiring. The manager gave me the web link to the application. Immediately after submitting it , I called the store to alert the manager that I had submitted. About 2 days later she called me in for a one on one interview. The interview was held right outside of the store at a table. She asked questions like "Have you ever been in a situation where you were unhappy with the result of some thing and n how did you deal with it. " Answer quickly but with honesty. She also asked what inspired my outfit and she wanted me to"sell" her my dress. I wore silver sandals and silver accessories with a pink summery dress with a low back cut. My hair was up in a bun. After the one on one interview she called me the next day for a interview with the district manager. That interview lasted about thirty minutes over the phone. The next day I received a call back and offered a job.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Wet Seal in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and took the assessment. About three days later an employee contacted me to set up an interview later that week. I wore a cute leopard top, slacks and flats. When I arrived I was told to wait while the other applicants arrived, as it was in a group interview. When the third applicant didn't arrive, the interviewer took the other girl and I to a nearby cafe and sat us down across from her. On the way there the employee was mainly talking to the other girl and didn't say one word to me. I immediately felt uncomfortable when normally I'm extremely confident. Overall the interview was terrible and I could tell she had no interest in me, she was just very rude. She said we would get a call in the next two days in the status of our application. Three weeks went by and I finally received a call asking for another interview. Three weeks later I got a call for a second interview. I got to the store and realized they were interviewing me all over again, and this time it was another employee. She was much nicer and there were many more applicants there. She'd seemed to like me and had gotten my hopes up, however three weeks later I got an email stating I was not hured.
