    I have been working at Wet Seal full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Complete flexibility in merchandising as long as the companies "vision" is upheld.
    The company is constantly looking for areas to increase efficiency in.
    Fairly streamlined store operations; much MUCH less paperwork than at other companies.
    While payroll is at times limited, all corporate tasks run on a set schedule and high task volumes are communicated to stores before hand. Rare last-minute "surprises"
    WetSeal truly believes in helping their customers. Customers come before tasks. No matter what deadline, what recovery, what shipment. Tasks will always be there, guests won't. Strong selling culture.

    Cons

    Atrocious POS systems. Literally cheap Dell computers rigged with some buggy POS software. Stores started keeping BINDERS of "ticket numbers" from the "help" desk.
    It is fast fashion so product is a "one and done" kind of deal. This leaves you with tons of "singles" and broken size runs which can make selling difficult at times.
    Large stores and little payroll means recovery is a constant battle.
    Loyalty program, the way it is constructed, has a negative impact on store KPIs when held at it's standard apps/trans %.
    You get the feeling the company is pushing towards the wrong demographic at times.

    Advice to Management

    Share more about the company and it's direction to those at the store level. Less "filler" product that just clutters stores and moves to clearance.
