    I have been working at Wet Seal part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Overall, the company is great to work for but what I enjoy the most about the current store I am at is the great management, how flexible they are, and how they constantly encourage their employees to keep up the good work.

    Cons

    Honestly, the only thing that I can find to complain about is the one to two occasional rude customers, but besides that everything is great.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing really besides, "keep up the good work" and "thank you for the positive feedback and constructive criticism that has shaped into a better sales associate".
