I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Wet Seal in November 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online at Indeed.Com and I received a phone call 2 days later and she stated it will be a group interview I interviewed with four others and answered some questions then we had to go in the store and create outfits.

Interview Question – None of the questions were hard for me because I had previous retail experience.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I wasn't able to negotiation because I had only work in retail for 6 months before I started working here. My advice to anybody who wants to work here if you did not have a certain hourly rate before working here they will not budge about negotiating.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
San Francisco, CA

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Wet Seal in May 2010.

Interview Details – I just turned in an application, interviewed with the store manager, and was hired the same day. I started work a few days later. He asked simple questions like my availability and wasn't interested in my experience at all. There was no pressure, I pretty much knew I was going to get the position. The interview was just a formality. The position is easy to train, they just want someone with a good attitude.

Interview Question – All the questions were simple.   Answer Question
