    Interview

    Interview was outside of the store within a busy mall. The interview was not one on one, but was eight candidates together with one interviewer. We were at a group of tables next to a waterfall and it was hard to hear. The interviewer asked one question and the candidates went around in a circle to answer.

    Interview

    Slow process of waiting to hear back. I had to follow up a couple of times. In the end, it didn't work out because they changed their minds. The recruiter, however, was super sweet.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Forever 21 (Portland, OR).

    Interview

    Group interview. It was very brief. I have great previous experience but the person who interviewed us had been doing quite a few interviews from what she told us and it seemed like she was very disinterested in this group that I was in. She asked basic questions such as what could you bring to the company?

    Interview

    I currently just finished High School so I wanted a job at retails since I had a lot of free time so I went to Forever 21 looking for a job. I was told to come in for a open house (open interview) that same day. I didn't get the job because I'm 17 and I guess they changed the policy but now one must be 18, I'm not sure if every forever 21 is like that.

    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied Online - received a call the next day.

    The person I talked to was friendly, but asked questions off of a sheet of paper and didn't seem to want to make conversation.

    The questions were straightforward - what's your experience, what do you like about the company, etc.

    She then asked me what type of compensation I was looking for and when I told her, she said it was too much and then hung up quickly. I would have like to ask her what pay the job did have and thank her for her time, but I assume my compensation was out of negotiating range.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked what I knew about the company. I had done my research about company culture, size, and how it got started, but I felt as though she was looking for something else because her response was not very positive.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Forever 21.

    Interview

    I got an application on a table in front of the store. I went home, filled it out, brought it back to the store, and 2 hours later I got a call for an interview the following day. The interview was very easy and literally lasted 5 minutes. 4 days later, I got another call for a second interview. This time it was a group interview with 3 other people. The group interview lasted up to about half an hour. The manager basically asked us a few questions and whoever wants to answer just goes.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The manager just said I would be started off at minimum wage. I was fine with that and didn't argue.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Forever 21 (Lincoln Heights, Los Angeles, CA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    I passed the interview and was offered a position but they delayed the process and I am still waiting. Interview was held in December 2014, and I am still on hold, or maybe they 'forgot'. Let's just leave it at that. You do the math. Most unprofessional, unorganized, idiotic company EVER. How they became a 'global' company is still a mystery.

    Negotiation

    I do not even want to waste my time typing this.
