    Interview Details

    I was called in for a group interview after which I moved on to a interview to meet with the senior buyer. The group interview was very easy, it was all basic questions about your background. I was asked basic (yet lame) questions such as "tell me a situation where you had to deal with stress and how you handled it".

    Human Resources Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Forever 21.

    Interview Details

    The communication was fine, and the interview planning was standard. I received a call from a recruiter who asked me to come in for an interview within the next couple of weeks. Once I got there, I was immediately shown in to see the hiring manager. It was obvious that he did not have much experience with proper interviewing, but it did last two hours and I left feeling like I had gave it my all. The atmosphere was very chic, and the people at reception area was very friendly and welcoming.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Forever 21.

    Interview Details

    The interview process consisted of 2 interviews. The first interview was an open casting interview where you filled an application out and they interviewed you on the spot. I received a call the next day to come back a week later to do the second interview. The second interview was a group interview where about 15 people had to pretend that they were sales associates at Forever 21 and help customers. They wanted to see how employees would react to working on the spot. I passed the second interview and accepted the offer.

    Call Center Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Forever 21 in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied to Forever 21 about three to four weeks ago. I applied online. I received a call Thursday which was two days ago. I interviewed the next day Friday. It was a group interview. Which I hate!!! The building is really nice once you get inside. Everyone was friendly. It was seven of us in the group being interviewed. Interviewing us was three employees. One was the supervisor. First question was tell us about yourself, second was tell us your biggest accomplishment, third tell us the three best things about your last job, then we had to role play. The role play was us acting like we were on the phone with a customer. The lady acted like a customer and you have to handle the call. Each person had to take a turn and the scenario changed each time. After that they asked us about our availability. In between all of that they told us about the position and tthe many benefits.ooh they even had cute name tags and cups of water.Their benefits are amazing. Overall it was a nice experience I won't know if I got the job until next week.

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Forever 21 in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    Received a phone interview and the HR girl was very nice and easy to talk to. Made an in person interview appointment a week later with 1 person but 2 girls showed up instead. Was asked very basic interview questions with no curve ball or trick questions and it lasted no more than 20 minutes. Although the HR girl was very friendly, my interviewers gave a cold vibe from the beginning.
