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

Interview Details – Walked in the store and picked up an application. Turned it in to a manager, they reviewed it and started interviewing me on the spot. It was sudden but I tried to not show it. They asked routine questions like 'why forever 21', 'what would you do in this situation', 'how do you keep up with the latest trends' and I answered them honestly and confidently. i was hired on the spot.

I applied in-person and interviewed at Forever 21.

Interview Details – The whole process took about 3 and half weeks. A friend of mines told me they were hiring so I hurried up and completed an application. I turned my application and resume in personally to the store manager and introduced myself. She asked certain questions on the spot like do you have any retail experience, etc. I had ZERO experience in retail but I showed confidence & also explained my last job where I worked directly with people. She told me she would give me a call but of course as a job seeker NEVER rely on that. I called about a week later to speak with her on following up with my app but she wouldn't be in that entire week! So I continued my job hunt. About 2 weeks later I finally got a call for an interview. It was a one on one interview with an assistant manager, who was very laid back and the questions asked were as well. After the interview she told me I should be receiving a call in a couple days. 2 days later I was offered the position. I accepted and had to go through two days of orientation! I started my first shift a couple days later.

Interview Question – The questions were really basic.
Tell me about yourself.
What's your sense of style?
How would you deal w/ a difficult customer?
Why would you like to work in retail?
How well do you work w/ others?
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Nope

I applied in-person - interviewed at Forever 21 in September 2012.

Interview Details – It was a group interview in the middle of the store. I was very relaxed. The store manager asked us about our previous work experience, what does customer service mean to us, and how do we handle difficult customers. Pretty much if you had a good personality and spoke up, then you would most likely get hired. I got a call two days after my interview and happily accepted. I work at Forever21 for about a year and my co-workers became my little family.

Interview Question – How do prevent someone from stealing?   Answer Question

Interviewed at Forever 21

Interview Details – Submitted online and paper app, called in about a week later. Group interview, all of the q's have been posted already. The dress code was "casual", but they should clarify on what casual means. If uncertain, you should go in with business casual attire since it's better to overdress than under dressing.

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Forever 21 in February 2014.

Interview Details – It was an open interview. I arrived with the application all filled out and ready to go. The interview was quick and took maybe 30 minutes. I got the job a few days after. The training process was very quick and I felt it covered the basics, but someone still needs guidance in their first couple of months at the store.

Interview Question – What did I consider working on a team to mean   View Answer

Negotiation Details – If you have retail experience, try to negotiate a higher salary.
