    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Chicago, IL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process wasn't bad at all. I applied to the Downtown Chicago location and online maybe a month ago or so. I kept calling about whether they were hiring. Eventually I got an interview last Wednesday. It was supposed to be a group but no one else showed. It was fairly short. And today,Monday, I called them back and they said wait until later tonight or tomorrow morning. They called me back a few hours later and offered me the job. And I accepted.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Chicago, IL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was called to come in for an interview within the same week. When I got there, I asked for a manager who would them take me to the empty security room and begin the interview. It was a smooth process, first giving basic info about the company then it's basic question and answer and a few comments from the manager. Was told I would get a call back soon if they decided to hire me, and got a call back within week.

The assistant manager and the store manager interviewed us. It was quick and easy. I interviewed on Wednesday, was told I would get a call on Friday. I called Friday at 3:30pm and was told I would get a call if they were interested. I'm assuming I didn't get the job. :(

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Forever 21 (North Riverside, IL) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I was in the store one day and I briefly talked to a manager who offered me a job and handed me an application. A few days later I turned in the application and then I got a call for an interview. I went in and filled out some paperwork. It took about an hour.

    Interview Questions

    • I wasn't asked any interview questions because I had been offered the job, but another interviewee was there while I was filling out the paperwork necessary for the job, and she was asked about her previous job experiences.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. If you are called in for an interview, that means they already like you and you are likely to get the job. I recommend going in person to ask for an application. Good luck!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Chicago, IL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I saw that the store was hiring and submitted an application in person. I was contacted about a week later and had an interview the next day. The interview was a group interview with three candidates and the store manager. The other candidates did not provide very good answers, but it seemed as though the store was desperate. They were very eager to hire and all three of us received job offers.
