    Interview

    There is only one interview. The questions are pretty simple and are focused more around customer service than anything else. There are a few things that they are looking for such as you talking up your customer service abilities, to know that you have great attendance and to know that you can look the part.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Forever 21.

    Interview

    I was recruited for the position by a former colleague. I only had one interview, with both him and the District Manager present. It was a surprisingly easy interview process for such a high-level position in a large-volume store. If I remember correctly, it would actually stand as the quickest and simplest interview process I've ever undergone. Possibly helpful information: at least in my area (NY), I was informed by the store manager that Forever 21 (possibly as a company???) doesn't check references. Odd, but true.

    Interview Questions

    • Everything asked was very routine. No surprise questions for anyone who prepares properly for interviews.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They were not at all flexible in terms of compensation. It was a take-it-or-leave-it offer. I had asked for fifty cents higher an hour, and after consulting with the Regional Manager by phone (which took a few days), the request was denied.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Forever 21 (Miami, FL) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Very fast. The lady had a really strong accent so I had to ask her to repeat herself several times. She smiled a lot yet she seemed to be very judgemental. We were in the middle of the mall so it was loud and people kept staring. I thought it was pretty normal however.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Forever 21.

    Interview

    Usually the interview process involves Q&A from current management via phone. Then they will set up an in-store interview with store manager. If you pass this round in the interview process and are a management candidate, the district manager will then contact you for interview as well.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Forever 21 (Honolulu, HI) in October 2012.

    Interview

    If the DM likes you, they will make their decision on the first interview. They will put in a background check immediately after the first interview. Once it clears, you will be job offerred. It was pretty lax and as long as you have a passion for retail and have leadership experience, you will get the job.

    Interview Questions

    • Asking about times you tried to develop someone and it did not work out.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Nothing.
