Former Employee - Sales Associate in Hanover, MD

I worked at Wet Seal part-time (less than a year)

Pros

40% discount and great sales, pay based on experience and easy job.
Everything in the store has its own section so its very easy to clean up and most jobs are self-explanatory.
Lots of employee contests - you can win gift cards, or a bonus on your paycheck based on sales.
Shifts are usually only 4 hours unless closing.

Cons

Not really a con, but they started basing your hours on how much you sell. So make sure that you and whoever is working with you during your hours is doing their job and helping customers.
Shifts are usually only 4 hours unless closing.

    Very challenging at times but could be a very nice place to work if you hire the right staff.

    I worked at Wet Seal part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The people I worked with were pretty decent. We all got along really well. The atmosphere of the work environment was pretty good. The manager I had was OK at first, after being there a while her true colors started to show. She was annoying and LAZY! Wouldn't do much if not any work, I'm truly surprise she is manager of the store. Another good thing was the employee discount-it's not like their products are "pricey" so a 40% discount is awesome! This job is good ONLY if you're a HS student or this is a first time job. Can't work here wanting to make a living for yourself!

    Cons

    Not a lot of hours
    Bad pay (but what can you expect it was .25 cents over minimum wage)
    If the store was really REALLY slow employees were asked to clock out and buy items from the store. Yes true we had to clock out and buy merchandise even if we did not want too! Very unprofessional! A lot of "call ins" and sometimes they would take your hours away if the store is really slow so you can sometimes only one 1 day a week! Not good. No room for growth.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
