    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newport Beach, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newport Beach, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Forever 21 in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I completed an on-line application on 10/17 or 10/18. I was contacted on 10/19 by the co-manager. He asked me to come in for a group interview on Thursday. It turned out "I was the group" (LOL!) no other candidate showed up for the 3:30PM group interview time. Nevertheless, the co-manager facilitated the interview with "typical" retail questions (e.g. Tell me about a time when a customer was difficult. What did you do to put the customer at ease?)

    Reasons for Declining

    The co-manager was willing to hire me as a cashier, but said he had a more interesting offer and that was for Head/Lead Cashier. In order to apply for this position, I had to meet with the manager.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Forever 21 in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Pretty much the easiest interview I have ever been on. I took my application in the store on Tuesday and got a call back the following day asking if I can be in at 4pm (same day) I made sure I was dressed stylish yet professional. I showed up about 10 minutes early and just browsed around until the manager came out. There weren't really any "formal" interview questions. It was so laid back and easy-going. We went over my resume and my experience a little then I was hired on the spot. Did all my paperwork that day and I start on friday!

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Memphis, TN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Memphis, TN
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Forever 21 in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was called by the Store Manager for a interview. A week later I interviewed with the District Manager and Visual Manager and was asked to submit for a background check. The following week I called to check the status of my background check and was told that it was pending by the Store Manager. The following week I called again and was told that the Store Manager no longer worked there and they decided to hire someone else. I'm not sure why a business would pay money for a background check and not hire the applicant my record is spotless and I have never been in trouble with the law. I'm also not sure why a Store Manager would begin interviews for a position knowing she would eventually leave. Her departure seems very sudden and unexpected either way I had a very good interview with the DM and took some valuable life lessons from our conversation.

    Interview Details

    Filled out an application in store and got a call the following day for a personal interview. They were having a "Job Fair" but I just sat down with the manager and it was easy and personal- just about fifteen minutes. She was nice and discussed the specific job terms (especially schedule-wise) as it was a seasonal job.

    Corporate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Forever 21.

    Interview Details

    Corporate looks a lot like thier stores. Very bright, very chic. I waited for approximately 10 minutes before my interview. The interviewers were unorganized, frazzled and in gerneral were confused about why I was there. The started talking about a position that I had no interest (or qualifications) for. They then looked closer at my resume and realized that I was there for another position. One of the recruiters literally said to me "oh, you're here for a position that we've laready filled" and it seemed as if she was now annoyed that I was there wasting her time. Rather than apologizing, she rolled her eyes and showed me the door. No apology, nothing. I'm sure they did me a "favor" in thier world, but if any of thier recruiters happen to be reading this let me offer you a friendly piece of advice; Kindness and consideration will you get you much much furhter than smug attitudes. You work for Forver21, not Hermes. Your company specializes in making cheap knock off fast fashion for twenty somethings. Having a crap attitude isn't very becoming nor is it something to be proud of. Try and remember that you are ambassadors of the company you work for.
