    Design Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2009.

    Interview

    Planning and organization of the interview was a mess. They did not have a place to interview me, they also did not know who was going to interview me. The work ethics are the best as they stay for long long hours of work, this said by an ex-employee designer as well. People are pretty laid back, the cafeteria which I was abel to see from the lobby reminded me of a cafeteria from high school, lack of presence and corporate environment atmosphere.

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined the offer because the lady that interviewed was extremely rude to me given that I told her I wanted to at least get paid $18 or $16 per hour. This considering that I had 2 years of experience under my belt + a very professional professional portfolio and letters of recommendation from Senior tittles at Jones. She responded: "Honey, you should go home and rethink what you really should be getting paid" Nobody with your tittle gets paid $16, Not True! Wuahaha. Or course, I declined, and later got a job a Guess for the rate that I wanted in the same city. BTW, they wanted to pay me only $14 plus had to stay hours extra if they needed.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Honolulu, HI) in July 2013.

    Interview

    I was sent an e mail by Kawika the Hawaii DM for a Store Manager interview asking if I can come in the next day. I am a store manager I cant just "take a day off" I replied saying I could make it on Thursday sadly I needed to work. She never sent as much of a courtesy reply because I couldn't drop everything to come in the next day. Already shows how they treat there managers.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Tukwila, WA) in February 2013.

Interviewed in the food court outside F21 Seemed very judgmental, could tell he wasn't going to hire me from the start.

    Human Resources Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    The communication was fine, and the interview planning was standard. I received a call from a recruiter who asked me to come in for an interview within the next couple of weeks. Once I got there, I was immediately shown in to see the hiring manager. It was obvious that he did not have much experience with proper interviewing, but it did last two hours and I left feeling like I had gave it my all. The atmosphere was very chic, and the people at reception area was very friendly and welcoming.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Went thru a recruiter for the position. It went well however the director changed focus to put me on a different line. After almost 6 months of back and forth interviews and two "projects", I met with the owner. His only question was if I was korean, basically I did not get the job because I was not Korean or knew other koreans.
