    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Forever 21.

    Interview Details

    Hiring, Interviewing process was quick and easy, you just need to dress nice to impress. Interview questions was simple. They don't seem to keep their papers organize. I got to wait almost an hour after i got there for the interview to be great by the hiring manager. The reason i quit there was because they don't pay for your mall parking.

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Newport Beach, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Newport Beach, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Forever 21 in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I completed an on-line application on 10/17 or 10/18. I was contacted on 10/19 by the co-manager. He asked me to come in for a group interview on Thursday. It turned out "I was the group" (LOL!) no other candidate showed up for the 3:30PM group interview time. Nevertheless, the co-manager facilitated the interview with "typical" retail questions (e.g. Tell me about a time when a customer was difficult. What did you do to put the customer at ease?)

    Reasons for Declining

    The co-manager was willing to hire me as a cashier, but said he had a more interesting offer and that was for Head/Lead Cashier. In order to apply for this position, I had to meet with the manager.

    Sales Floor Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newport Beach, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newport Beach, CA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Forever 21.

    Interview Details

    I was shopping and saw a table with a sign that said hiring and some applications. I had been looking for a second job and I figured why not. I filled one out turned it in and got a call back the next day or possibly the day after that. I had an interview set up a few days later that when I arrived I realized was a group interview. I wore something that would be considered trendy due to the nature of the job. I was interviewed with two other girls and it was relatively easy. The questions for the lost part were the typical who are you what have you done in the past why do you want to work here etc. As well as telling us about the company and the types of personality they're looking for. At the end of the interview we were all hired on the spot. Generally they do call backs I believe, but he said he wanted all three of us so there was no need to call individually. We were then all set up with an orientation date and sent on our ways.

    Marketing Allocation Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in East Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Employee in East Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Forever 21 in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process for the Merchandise Allocator position seemed pretty standard-three interviews within the department. I started off interviewing for an HR recruiting position and met with several of the company's' recruiters. One recruiter happened to be working for the Allocations department. I interviewed with the recruiter, the head of the Allocations department, and one of the VP's in Allocations. The interviews rarely lasted longer than half an hour. The Corporate offices are beautiful and brand new. The work environment in fun and bright-you can tell everyone is happy to be at work. There are no offices, just conference rooms where the departments are working together, side-by-side in a collaborative environment. The recruiters are very genuine and the people in upper levels of management are equally as friendly. They are undergoing major structural changes within the company, so a lot of employees in the corporate office have worked there two years or less. They are looking for more employees who have worked in their retail stores to help develop their corporate management further.

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the interviews were just discussions about previous experience and why I wanted to join the corporate team. There were a few "what-if" hypothetical scenarios given, but nothing tricky.   Answer Question

    Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mission Viejo, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mission Viejo, CA
    Application Details

    The process took 5 daysinterviewed 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.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Forever 21.

    Interview Details

    1st interview was good. Short, straight to the point. My second interview got cancelled because the manager "forgot" I was on his calendar (I had already taken time off work). They rescheduled and did not give me an option as to when my interview was saying "it was their only free time for over a month". The second interview started half an hour late & was the manager talking and not really asking any questions.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Forever 21.

    Interview Details

    I was shopping at the store when I noticed they were having a hiring event (basically a manager at a fold up table in the front of the store with applications). I filled out an application and she asked me a couple questions about my previous work experience. I got a call later that day to come into the store for a group interview. There were about six of us in a circle going around answering the manager's questions (nothing tricky). Everyone in my group got the job (except one girl who was late). Dress cute and smile.

    Production Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Forever 21.

    Interview Details

    They have 4 people interview you at the same time, which I'm 99% sure they do it as a scare tactic, which didn't work; It just makes the entire interview inefficient. 3 out of the 4 people asked questions that were completely irrelevant to the position, which also showed that they were in there, just because, and really didn't have any idea what they were talking about.
