    I worked at Wet Seal full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fairly nice employee discount with bonuses and rewards for making nearly impossible goals. Ability to move up quickly.

    Cons

    Moving up typically caps at Store Management.
    Knowing the supervisor will get you the job BEFORE experience.
    Store managers do not receive overtime.
    Company lied about stores closing and told the truth 3 days before closing over half their stores.

    Advice to Management

    Find a better paying job with a company who will respect you.
