    I have been working at Wet Seal full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I truly enjoy the daily challenges. My DD and Regional are AWESOME! They are concerned about my store and provide support and constructive criticism when necessary. You are praised for your accomplishments, but as adults we shouldn't look for "pats on the back" just for doing your JOB!

    Cons

    Unfortunately the weekly hours are sales driven, which means you have to have sales associates that are able to multitask with minimal supervision. I see people complaining about a lot of things, but need to apply common sense to the situation. If you're not making the sales you don't get the hours. If you don't support your staff, they will not work for you. If you are not positive your staff won't be either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at what's working at the store level. They are making good strides to change the environment.
