    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Beaumont, TX) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Applied in store then called for an update a few days later. The lady who answered the phone said they don't give application updates Friday through Sunday, but I could call in the following Monday. I did and the male associate asked me about my availability then a few hours later I received a call for an interview. It was a group interview including myself and three other people with one of the managers. She asked easy questions and told us we didn't have to answer in any particular order. At the end of the interview she asked to choose an outfit we would wear during the winter/fall and explain why we chose it. A few days after the first interview I received a call to come in the following week for my second interview where I was asked similar questions by a second manager. After that, she told me I was hired, welcomed me to the team and asked if I could stay to fill out some paper work.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Forever 21 in July 2015.

    Interview

    I walked in and asked if they were hiring, and they gave me a paper application to fill out. When I handed it in they asked me a few questions about my previous experience, which kind of caught me off guard. They told me they would give the application to the manager and if she liked it they'd call me in for an interview. They called a couple of hours later and asked me to come in tomorrow for an interview. I didn't know if I should dress business casual or casual, so I came in business casual. An FYI for people with the same question as me... dress casually. I was a bit overdressed, but thankfully it didn't matter. I came in 10 minutes early and was told to wait while more candidates showed up. Finally the manager came over 10 minutes late and me and one other girl went outside for the interview. She asked us a couple of questions, and she said she'd call us within 2 weeks to say if we got the job (in my case, she called 4 days after the interview). It was all fairly easy and was over in 15 minutes... just be yourself and be friendly. It was probably the most casual job interview I've ever been at.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Winston-Salem, NC).

    Interview

    The interview process was very quick, fun and casual. I visited the store last Friday asking if they had any part-time positions, they did so I got an application which I turned in the following Monday. When I turned in it in I was introduced to the Store Manager by the assistant manager, and was given an interview there and then! All I had to do was pick three items of my choice in a designated room in Forever 21. I had a time frame of five minutes and had to sell my outfit to the assistant manager. All the managers I met during the interview were very friendly and made me feel comfortable. Couldn't have asked for a better first job interview!
