    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Wet Seal (Foothill Ranch, CA) in May 2009.

    Interview

    Initial communication was professional and timely with the HR Recruiter. An in-person interview was scheduled. Met separately with 2 managers, a director and a VP. Questions mostly focused on how one would convince others to see their point of view, examples of how you handle working with difficult people, and overview of general skill set for position.

    After the interview their follow through was exceptionally poor. (hence the 3 month start to finish window)

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Wet Seal (Auburn, AL) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Brief very rushed. The store manager was in experienced. You could tell they were going through a leadership change and that reflected on the morale of the store. Questions seemed to be gathered from a website and were very impersonal.

    Negotiation

    Because I was returning back to school, my negotiations took one day and they were open to accommodating my request.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Wet Seal.

    Interview

    I put my application in online and the very next day I got a phone call by the store manager asking whens the best day early next week to have a in person interview. I went into the interview and it went very well. The store manager told me she will let me know though an E-MAIL which day and time I WILL BE CALLED for my two over the phone interviews one being another store manager and the other by the dm. Two days later I GOT A CALL by her telling me I HAD TO CALL another store manager by this time today in which I had to call that store manager within an hour of her phone call in which she just told me about it and I ALSO HAD TO CALL the dm next day for my interview with her. I called the other store manager when I was told to and it seemed to go very good. I called the dm the next day at the time I was suppose to and that interview went very well also. The dm told me I would hear back from them good or bad no later than 4 four days after this over the phone interview with her. I never heard from them again no call and no e-mail. I went into my application online to see if it was still active (if there are still looking for someone) and it was inactive (which means they are no longer looking for someone). The interview question are easy other then they all ask you the same questions and even some questions are asked twice or more within one interview and it seems like they don't read you resume before your interview with them at all. I just wish they would do as they say they are like i'll email you and they will call you, but instead i'll call you and you have to call for your interview's and of course JUST CALL EVERYONE BACK GOOD OR BAD and don't just say you will and then don't. In all honest if you don't the job you waste roughly about a week of your time doing all this and waiting for them to not just give you 5 minutes of there time to call you back to let you know if you got it or not that's where I got little upset about it and I think most people would.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Midland, TX

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Wet Seal (Midland, TX) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The process took about 3 weeks. I met first with the store manager and I had no interview. Then he scheduled me for an interview with the district manager. I was not too happy with how my negotiation was made. Because of my age they lowered my pay, then hired another assistant two months later for 3 dollars more an hour because she was older.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I had to show them pay stubs from a previous job and they based my pay off of that amount. And I didn't hear my offer till they made me do paperwork. Then I was still making 73 cents less an hour then I was as an associate at Dillard's.

    Cashier Interview

    Interview

    Only one interview with them. It was a standard interview, nothing unexpected or difficult. They asked about previous experience, which I've had none of. Basic questions like that. Dress 'code' was nice but casual. The atmosphere was very relaxed, and I had a nice, relatable interviewer.
