    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Honolulu, HI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Honolulu, HI) in July 2013.

    Interview

    I was sent an e mail by Kawika the Hawaii DM for a Store Manager interview asking if I can come in the next day. I am a store manager I cant just "take a day off" I replied saying I could make it on Thursday sadly I needed to work. She never sent as much of a courtesy reply because I couldn't drop everything to come in the next day. Already shows how they treat there managers.

    Design Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2009.

    Interview

    Planning and organization of the interview was a mess. They did not have a place to interview me, they also did not know who was going to interview me. The work ethics are the best as they stay for long long hours of work, this said by an ex-employee designer as well. People are pretty laid back, the cafeteria which I was abel to see from the lobby reminded me of a cafeteria from high school, lack of presence and corporate environment atmosphere.

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined the offer because the lady that interviewed was extremely rude to me given that I told her I wanted to at least get paid $18 or $16 per hour. This considering that I had 2 years of experience under my belt + a very professional professional portfolio and letters of recommendation from Senior tittles at Jones. She responded: "Honey, you should go home and rethink what you really should be getting paid" Nobody with your tittle gets paid $16, Not True! Wuahaha. Or course, I declined, and later got a job a Guess for the rate that I wanted in the same city. BTW, they wanted to pay me only $14 plus had to stay hours extra if they needed.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Philadelphia, PA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    It was really nerve racking. The store manager just kept hitting me with random questions. It was like a 30 minute interview. I didn't think I got the job because of how uncertain I felt after.

    Assistant Production Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The recruiter that contacted me throughout the whole process was really sweet. I had a phone interview with her that lasted 5-10 minutes. She said she would contact me to schedule an interview. I went in for the first interview with the manager that I would have been working with & it went well. She was really nice and answered any questions I had. They e-mailed me to come in for a second interview and the lady who interviewed me seemed uninterested the whole time. She also made me wait for 15 minutes and only interviewed me for 5 minutes. Maybe she was just busy that day but it made me feel like I was wasting her time.
    She left before I could ask any questions. I sent a follow up email and no response. Finally, the recruiter emailed saying they were going with someone else.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Camarillo, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    It was a group interview where we all had different knowledge of the position & store. More of us knew more about the actual background of the company itself but we all stood out enough in our own ways that impressed the employers.
