I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Los Angeles, CA) in Dec 2019

Interview

I applied for the position via the LinkedIn job posting. I was then contacted by a recruiter through email to go in for an interview at their HQ office. I interviewed with 3 people total, and the interview was fairly easy/standard. After interviewing I was told I would be contacted with any further steps. I heard back within a few days for a second interview which was delayed because of the holidays. After the new year I reached out to follow up twice, and was then told that the person in charge decided to make changes to the requirements and was now looking for someone with more experience, which I found to be so frustrating.

I interviewed at Forever 21

Interview

It was very informal. I met with two of the managers and did not really interact with anyone from HR. I also was not clear on the position that was open as they were very vague in the interview

Interview

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".

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Los Angeles, CA) in Oct 2012

Interview

Was contacted by a recruiter through Style Careers. Was called in for a group interview with about 12 other candidates. I did not see how HR and the Merchandising Director could get a sense of if we would fit with their culture by asking us questions in such a large group. The interview was very long because we had to wait for each person to answer each question. It seemed quite inefficient. Consisted of generic interview questions.

Interview Questions
  • Tell me about a time you made a mistake and how did you fix it.
