    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed 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.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a day - interviewed at Forever 21 in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Saw an online posting that said they were conducting group interviews. Had to wait on a long line and fill out applications. They finally called me and about 6 other people. We stood in an area in the store while an employee asked us questions about our style influences, personal style, etc. It was very casual and there were only about 4 questions. She randomly chose one person to answer each question so I only got to speak once. There wasn't really much of an opportunity to sell yourself which is why I prefer one on one interviews. After the questioning was over she collected our resumes and said we would get a call if our applications had been considered. I never got a call.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Forever 21 in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Walked in and asked for a manager I was given an application and scheduled for an interview on the spot for the following day. Interviewed with the loss prevention head and was told to expect a call before Monday (interview was held on Friday). On Sunday afternoon I was called back and offered a sales position. I started the week after my orientation due to an issue with my paper work at HR, you'll probably start much sooner(days after).

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions. My interviewer asked "Why do YOU want to work here?" several times throughout usually after explaining a not-so-pleasant part of the job, I guess to make sure I was serious about the job.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation unless you've worked retail for very long or are a higher up(manager)

    Interview Details

    dress appropriately and you should be okay. Be professional and be prompt/punctual. They will call you for an interview if they like your application. It will probably take a really long time for them to get back to you so don't expect to get a reply immediately

    Application Details

    I applied in-person - interviewed at Forever 21 in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went in on a Saturday filled out the application and headed towards the managers office i was introduced and told to come the following day in the evening for my interview. That Sunday I went in expecting a group interview but fortunately i received a one on one interview. I was asked questions such as what is good customer service, why I would want the job and what if someone on my floor isn't working. After all of that the manager asked if I had a question to ask, that's the question that had me looking around. Eventually I was hired and told to come in for orientation in a couple of days.I believe because I had strong statements about customer service and its importance. For my outfit I wore a simple woven black forever top with a tank top underneath so it wont be revealing, grey and black high wasted printed pants from h&m and a pair of black fisherman style sandals and Ii wore all silver accessories including my watch and a metallic feather tribal necklace.

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Forever 21.

    Interview Details

    Sat down with manager, 1:1. She asked one question, "why do you want to work at forever 21" which I answered. She then asked me no more questions, instead talking about her store, the problems she has with her employees, etc. She gave me all the answers I needed. I then said "well I got a lot of information from you, let me go point by point and address everything." And gave her a pitch she couldn't refuse, simply because she gave me all the information I needed to know where she was coming from, the problems she's encountered, and what she's looking for. She called me 5 days later to say that I was hired.
