    Visual Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Tucson, AZ) in February 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process was a little long. I was taken outside the store by the store manager and a visual supervisor (I believe). They began asking the typical questions and everything was going well until we spoke about my availability. I answered all the questions fairly well and then the store manager proceeded to tell me they needed a full time availability but the job posting said part time. She looked unsure of what to do, then asked if I would be interested in a different position than the one I applied for. I said yes and she still looked a bit troubled. She then told me she was going to get a co manager to interview me as well. When the other manager came in she began asking me questions like, why can't you work these specific days etc. I began to explain my situation of having a child and that my husband and I take turns with her. It felt to me like she was trying to discourage me from wanting to work there, she kept saying "you do know we get off late sometimes right?" and she mentioned a few times how my child should be my priority versus a job. I know that!!! At the end she said she was going to speak to yet another manager and that they would contact me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Monterey, CA).

    Interview

    So I entered f21 and walked to the first person I saw working there if she knew where her manager was because I had an interview. Luckily, I was talking to the manager herself. I introduced myself and she told me to wait a little bit until someone else showed up. I was in a group interview with one other girl. The process went smoothly because the whole thing felt like a friendly conversation. The manager was so sweet and had a great sense of humor to lighten up how anxious the process can be. After the interview, she told both of us to go around the store and pick an outfit to wear for a party and gave us 15 minutes. I dont think this part was a make or break on deciding if we get the job, I think it was more for her to know how creative we can be. She was impressed with both of our outfits. I got hired on the spot and she gave both of us all the paperwork to fill out.
