    Sales Floor Associate Interview

    Interview Details

    No real process. Kind of just showed up in the store and started filling out paperwork. i guess I just got lucky because I just happened to show up on the day that they were doing new hire orientation so the manager just told me to join on in. I would definitely suggest that to anyone else, instead of just turning your app in, make sure you follow up and hound them or they will hardly ever get to it and call you back.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Forever 21.

    Interview Details

    The whole process took about 3 and half weeks. A friend of mines told me they were hiring so I hurried up and completed an application. I turned my application and resume in personally to the store manager and introduced myself. She asked certain questions on the spot like do you have any retail experience, etc. I had ZERO experience in retail but I showed confidence & also explained my last job where I worked directly with people. She told me she would give me a call but of course as a job seeker NEVER rely on that. I called about a week later to speak with her on following up with my app but she wouldn't be in that entire week! So I continued my job hunt. About 2 weeks later I finally got a call for an interview. It was a one on one interview with an assistant manager, who was very laid back and the questions asked were as well. After the interview she told me I should be receiving a call in a couple days. 2 days later I was offered the position. I accepted and had to go through two days of orientation! I started my first shift a couple days later.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Forever 21.

    Interview Details

    Was referred by a friend and contacted by a very nice HR worker within a few days (by email) to set up an in-person interview. Met with a production manager, wasn't asked a lot of "basic" and boring interview questions. It seemed more like a conversation where she really was trying to get a good feel for me.

    Interview Questions
    • What are your future career goals? (This one was tricky for me because I felt like if I stated someone outside of this job path it would mean I plan on leaving soon/at some point)   Answer Question
