Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

Sales Associate/Cashier
Mission Viejo, CA

The process took 5 days - interviewed at Forever 21.

Interview Details – 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.

Sales Associate/Cashier

I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Forever 21.

Interview Details – Forevere21 were having open interviews so I decided to dress my regular self and give it a shot. Went for a job interview back in April but never got a call back. Open interviews are conducted by a manager & they usually call people in by groups of 10. He asked why we want to work at forever21 and if we had retail experience. He then finished the interview withe saying if they're interested they'll call us that evening. Got called back to come the next day and like the day before it was in a group. This interview ultimately was about standing out and that I did! :). At the end of the interview they said they would call us but 9 that night if we got the job. Never received a call that night but did that morning!

Interview Question – If you we're a customer how would you want an employee to greet you   View Answer
