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!

    Application

    The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Forever 21 (Mission Viejo, CA).

    Interview

    I applied on a paper application, and two days later they called me in for my first interview! It was a group interview, about 10 girls and 1 guy, the assistant manager was interviewing. It was a quick 15 minute interview, we started by introducing ourselves, hobbies, etc and then he asked basic questions like strengths and weaknesses, what can you contribute to forever 21, etc. I noticed a lot of the girls were a little underdressed, and copied each other's answers. He called me back 24 hours later for a second interview with the manager the next day.

    The second interview was one on one, very fast about 10 minutes. The manager was really nice and asked the same questions, asked my availability.

    I just got a call this morning and they offered me a position.

    Interview

    Went to the forever 21 job fair and had a small interview with one of the assistant managers. The following week I got a call to come do a interview. It was a group interview but they try to make it more like a conversation. They asked simple questions like "why do you want to work here instead of elsewhere, your pros and cons, what do you know about forever 21 the company, what do you have on that's from forever21, and just to tell a little about yourself.
