Assistant Buyer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
No Offer
Easy Interview

Application

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Los Angeles, CA) in November 2013.

    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".

    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
