    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Pleasanton, CA) in January 2017.

    The process was fairly easy and comfortable. The only problem I really had was waiting almost an hour in the the store walking around waiting to be interviewed, and then when it came time, I did a group interview in their storage room. Otherwise everyone was nice.

    Product Developer/Graphics Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Forever 21 in January 2017.

    Interview

    I was double booked with HR. She had to cut the meeting short. First impression, not professional. She kept on fixing her hair/bangs every second. She asked me what my current salary was, I told her my range. She immediately told me that this is not a Senior level. 2nd interviewer came in, it was very brief (15 min). She must have yawned about 4 times. I was pretty much done by that last yawn. Waste of time, HR should have reviewed the resume thoroughly before the interview.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Forever 21.

    Interview

    Submitted a paper application in-store and got called in for an interview a few days later.
    It was a group interview with 3 other candidates. We went down the line answering the same set of basic interview questions (which got really repetitive). Then, we were asked a couple of individual questions. None of the questions were too difficult.
    I received my offer over the phone a couple days later.

    Visual Merchandiser Interview

    Negative Experience
    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 Fashion Designer Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Los Angeles, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through the career site on the Forever 21 website. It took 3 weeks for them to contact me back after contacting the Hiring Manager several times. Once I was called in for an interview, it was a month past the time of actually applying for the position and I was scheduled to come in the next Friday, making it 5 weeks from the time I applied, and at 4 pm, which was extremely inconvenient given traffic in LA and the location of their headquarters.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Little Rock, AR).

    Interview

    open interview setting. I was recruited while I was at work at my present job. Talked about how cute my jeans were and offered me a job. Extremely unprofessional. I wasn't surprised at all when I hired on how poorly ran the store was and how incompetent the new employees were from the way my interview went.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Really informal, happened in a lounge area outside of the store. Interviewer had his questions written on a half-sheet of paper, was friendly but it just seemed really informal to me. I applied during the holidays (seasonal) so the interview was very quick, which I'm assuming was because they were interviewing so many people.
