Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Forever 21 (Charleston, SC) in June 2015.

Interview

When I finally got to meet the manager, Tiffany, and begin my interview, she was very kind. She inquired more about me/my personality than my work experience. It was about 15 minutes; not to long and to the point. The manager showed extreme enthusiasm and emphasized the fact that at her store especially, the employees are taken care of and there is minimal problems between employees.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Forever 21 (Elizabeth, NJ) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was easy. I was nervous that it was a group interview since I usually get overpowered but it was easy. Forever 21 in kind of unprofessional. The job was supposed to start at 11, they told me to come back at 2. Came back they had us sitting there waiting until almost 4! \ The manager who was interviewing us told us that he was going to text us that night letting us know if we were hired. He never texted us and I thought I didn't get the job. 4 days after I get a text at 11:43 pm telling me I was hired and would have to be there for orientation at 9 the next day. Surprise, surprise we were sitting there waiting for an hour and a half.

    Interview

    Went to a Job Fair, it was easy but took over 2 months. They asked us simple costumer service questions. They seem to be very picky when it comes to hiring people. 6 people got hired out of 150.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Forever 21 (Honolulu, HI) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I went in and asked if they were hiring and they were so I turned in an application there and a few weeks later I got a call for an interview. It was on a Thursday. They had back to back interviews so it was pretty fast. About 20-30 mins. They asked pretty much only 3 questions. "Why do you wanna work here?" " What is good customer service to you? "What is teamwork mean to you and why is it important? Give an example where you had to work with a team to achieve something." Could be work, school, at home etc.. There were 2 people interviewing us. A guy and girl. In my group interview there was me and 3 other girls. So 4 total. Now it was time for the scenerio part of the interview where we had to pick an outfit. The last time I went to an interview at another location we had to individually pick an outfit in 5 mins according to the scenario she gave us. Here they made us partner up and one group had to pick an outfit for the guy and WE had to pick one for the girl.( thank god!) And we had ONE MINUTE! Our scenario was her going to a birthday party.. a fancy restaurant kind.. she loved our outfit she said it was exactly her taste. We were so happy even though we definitely went over 1 min :) so that was the end and they said if we're interested you'll get a call tonight by 9. If you don't get a call then we've moved on to other applicants. They shook our hands and left. To me this was the funnest group interview I ever did. Personally I don't like group interviews but this one was really fun and the girls were really nice we were all talking before the interview started. Really fun experience :) wasn't nervous at all. Just be yourself talk loud and when you pick your outfits get more then one! Have OPTIONS! That's what she said we shuldve have did. She said it's good to have different options. Good luck :) just have fun!
