    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Forever 21 (New York, NY) in July 2010.

    Interview

    I went to the company website where I found out about their recruiting efforts for the company's Time Square location. I printed a copy of my resume (revised and tweaked); the following day, the 1st day of the interviews, I went doen to the 14ths street branch and waited on line from 10 am-4pm. Get there early for recruitment events. wear forever 21 clothing, look fashionable and dont be trapped into the corporate look but dont look cheap and trashy either. The recruiter was friendly and nice, she came from LA, headquaters with another female recruiter, it was only two of them. Be personable and try to stand out by the way you dress and articulate your answers as well as personality have a little small talk if you can , this was a group interview.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Forever 21 (New York, NY) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Went to the Forever Job fair in Manhattan, it started at 9 AM. Waited for about 3 hours on a line before my turn they were calling 10 people in at a time but once it was time for my group to go they called 20 people so they'd have time to see everyone. Basically the manager introduced himself and just asked one question went around the room then picked several people to stay behind while the other ones left and that was it. I waited on a line for over 3 hours for one generic basic question

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Forever 21 (New York, NY) in October 2012.

    Interview

    The best thing about Forever 21 is perhaps the interview process. Those who conduct the interview (various types of managers i.e assistant, floor etc.) usually shy away from standard questions which is great because such questions tend to overshadow a prospective employees personality. I've only attended open calls and those consisted of a walk in group interview, and second interview if you're a eligible employee and if hired, orientation.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Forever 21 (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It was a group interview, the manager told us why we wanted to work for F21, what super power would we choose, what is Costumer Service to you, and what's going to be fall's biggest trend. My advice, be honest, have good energy when talking especially in a group and try to have a sense of humor. Also, if you never had any retail experience, take a Costumer Service training course. Looks very good on your resume and managers actually take that into consideration especially if it was a certified course.

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Forever 21 (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I went to an open house for their Times Square location at about 8am on morning. There were about 30 people in line ahead of me. We were given an application to fill out and then we held on to them until it was our turn to meet with a manager type person. It was a short group interview- whats your name, your experience and why do you want to work for this company. The day after, I was called about a second interview. It was also a group interview but this time it took place in an office. We were asked to say a little about yourself, and a lot of customer service related questions. I was expecting a question or two about the love of fashion but that never came up, so i suggest mentioning your love of fashion when you talk about yourself. They said they would call the following day if an offer was extended. No offer was extended.

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Forever 21 (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It was a group interview. There was about 7 people in a group. The questions were not really hard. They asked questions about your skills, performance related questions nd current trend related questions. No question too far fetched or hard to answer. The hiring manager it more like a conversation which made it more comfortable for everybody.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation necessary. I was pleased with the offer.
