Head Cashier Interview

Head Cashier
New York, NY

I applied in-person and interviewed at Forever 21.

Interview Details – I went in and asked for an applications, and spoke to a manager had a friendly conversation and then asked about the job process. Made sure he remembered my face and came back after I filled it out another day. He remembered me and pushed me to the next manager right away. I made it aware I wanted more than a regular associate position. And blew past the group interview even before it happened. Second interview was with the store manager. Easy questions, typical things, nothing out of the norm.

Interview Question – How would you lead your sales assoc./cashier?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not really negotiable

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Forever 21 in November 2013.

Interview Details – I handed my resume to a manager and was contacted by phone no less than three or four days later. I came into an interview with one other person. We met the hiring manager in store and the meeting was held in the food court. She asked simple questions about our availability, our fashion sense, and why we wanted to work at the company. The meeting was short and stress-free. I got a call three days later with a job offer.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Forever 21.

Interview Details – I was told by a manager to come in store to apply as the process would go by faster. I came in, filled out an application, and was interviewed by a manager. I was hired the same day. I got the pay I asked for and I should have asked for a bit more.

Interview Question – Honestly, the questions were really easy. The most difficult question was problem, "Describe a time when you had to deal with a difficult customer." Not that hard being that I have experience in door-to-door sales. In other words, I know what it's like to deal with difficult people.   Answer Question
