    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Downey, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Downey, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied in person and got a call 2 days later for an interview (attach resume to application), The interview was great the manager made me very comfortable just smile, be energized and overly joyed to be there. It took about 15 minutes just me and her in a little room. I got a call back 3 days later even though I was told it would be weeks. I got a call from the co-manager telling me to take my ID, and social (thats all I was told), I had no idea if I got the job or not but I assumed it was an orientation (I was right). After reading the handbook and filling out loads of paperwork I was told I would receive my schedule and employee number within the next 2 weeks. After a week and a half I called to confirm that I was still going to get that email because it was taking a while and I was getting paranoid; the co-manager picked up and let me know that she remembers calling me AND speaking to me the day after the orientation to go back In to provide one more signature when in Reality I did not get any calls and never heard from her the day after orientation. therefor I was out of the system just like that and did not get the job:) instead I was told I would have to reapply.....I was very confused and upset. I heard a lot of negative things about working at forever 21 but didn't believe it.... I should have. Keep in mind I answered every unknown phone call I got from downey just in case it was forever 21 and even after checking my recents, I did not receive any calls from them. This showed me how unorganized they are. But its okay it just was not meant to be and ended up landing a job at Disneyland!!!! everything worked out in the end.

    I filled out the application and interviewed the same day since they were having open interviews. The interview was standard and basic. The only question that threw me off guard was when the interviewer asked me to sell her something.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    we were told to wait in the area by the shoes and when it was time for the interview the woman interviewing us asked for our names to see who was there. there were about 4 girls there including myself. she divided us into pairs and interviewed us that way. we were interviewed in a small room in the back that was employee's only. she asked about 5-6 questions, but i don't remember them all. at the end she asked us to put down our availability. The job requires a lot of flexibility as the amount of merchandise coming in varies and being able to carry at least 30 pounds. hours can range from 4am to 9pm and sometimes you might have to stay overnight. i asked about the hourly wage and the woman said that it would depend on what you were offered when they called you.
