Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

Anonymous Employee in San Antonio, TX
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Forever 21 (San Antonio, TX).

Interview

I went into the store with a completed application and spoke to the store manager. She called me a few days later and set up a time for an interview. The interview was 1:1 with the manager. She made me feel very comfortable. The questions asked during the interview were your basic interview questions, others questions were "Why did you choose this store over all the others?" and "What would you say to someone who wanted your outfit?" She hired me on the spot and I started about two weeks later. It was a very positive experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Portage, MI) in August 2008.

    Interview

    The interview process was crucial because it was based on who they wanted working where and not based on experience. I had originally interviewed for the Merchandiser Assistant position, but was told that they were looking for someone with an Associates degree. I thought that was strange. It didn't say that in the ad.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Tucson, AZ) in November 2012.

    Interview

    I turned in my application to one manager who asked me basic questions like "why do you want to work here?". I told them I was interested in getting into retail and that I really liked fashion. They thanked me for coming in and told me they would be calling in the next week. I recieved a call a few days later to have an interview with a different manager. I went in in cute, fashionable clothes and had my interview right up at the cash registers in the middle of he store (not too professional, in my opinion). They asked me a lot of questions about my fashion sense. Where do I get my style inspiration? Where do I like to shop? And the big ending question was What do you like about Forever 21? I told them that I like the clothing, of course, but most of all the employees are always kind and friendly. I was asked to come back the next morning for orientation. I had to wait a whole week after orientation to get my first schedule.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Forever 21 (New York, NY) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Was only asked 2 questions. It was fun and laid back. I went into the store one day and asked if they were hiring, they were so I filled out the application ASAP then handed it back a few minutes later. I was called the next day for an interview on the following day. The manager was nice and funny, made everyone laugh so you didn't feel nervous at all (was a group interview)

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Forever 21.

    Interview

    Forevere21 were having open interviews so I decided to dress my regular self and give it a shot. Went for a job interview back in April but never got a call back. Open interviews are conducted by a manager & they usually call people in by groups of 10. He asked why we want to work at forever21 and if we had retail experience. He then finished the interview withe saying if they're interested they'll call us that evening. Got called back to come the next day and like the day before it was in a group. This interview ultimately was about standing out and that I did! :). At the end of the interview they said they would call us but 9 that night if we got the job. Never received a call that night but did that morning!
