    Corporate Position Interview

    Interview Details

    First met with them at a job fair, handed my resume and was told by a recruiter that they would invite me to their group interviews. About a week or two later, was contacted via email by a recruiter for a group interview. There were about 4-5 different people at the group interview that met with 2 recruiters and the VP of merchandising. Was asked 3 questions: what can you tell us about yourself, what was your biggest accomplishment, and what a mistake you made and what did you do to fix it? It went smoothly but it was a little awkward. I followed up with an email and got an answer about a week later that they cannot move forward with me

    Application Details

    I applied in-person - interviewed at Forever 21.

    Interview Details

    not professional. they do group interviews in which the asst. manager did not behave professionally, besides the point that they called so many people for the same time that she had to divide us in groups and some people waited 2 hour + to be interviewed. At the end she did even filter appropriately. Even those that did not do good AT ALL got hired. For what I saw only the older applicants didn't get the job.

    Interview Details

    Submitted my resume on their website and got a response within a week from their HR. I was asked a couple of questions regarding my experience and my present job. Within next few days, I received another call from a production manager asking me to come in for an interview. However, I declined because the starting salary that HR mentioned was just too low.
