    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Forever 21 in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    I heard by word of mouth that there was an opening for an assistant management position. I went to apply, interviewed with the store manager, then got an interview with district manager. She asked only a few questions, we talked about the company and a few personal inquiries. It was short and straight forward. They ran a background check which took about a week to get back to them. A few days later I was offered the job.

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Forever 21 in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was being interviewed for an ASM position even though I applied for a Visual Manager position. They had already hired a visual manager who was not qualified so they decided to interview me for the ASM position even though they didn't clue me in until later in the interview. This should have been a sign that the company was very off.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Forever 21.

    Interview Details

    I applied online from a craigslist ad. I was contacted by phone a few days later and went into one of their locations and interviewed with a Store Manager from their New York store who I guess was handling the hiring. I initially was interviewing for the co-manager position but he didn't think I had enough experience. The questions were pretty generic. "Tell me about a time..." and "Why do you want to work for forever 21". After the interview with him he set me up with a interview with the DM a few days later. I met with her and she asked the same series of questions and told me they had a store available in Columbia. That next week I went for an "interview" with the Store Manager and she pretty much said if the DM wants you, you're in. I started a few days later.
