    Visual Merchandiser Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA
    Accepted Offer
    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

    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.

    Store Co Manager Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    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.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Forever 21.

    Interview

    I applied online, I don't remember how long it took to get a call back. It was a group interview, there were a handful of people there and most of them got hired since it was for a seasonal position.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    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 Merchandising Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Cleveland, OH).

    Interview

    Very quick. Only took a week. Had two interviews and store manager and visual manager. Then had another interview with two DM's. Very easy going and relaxing. The process only took anout a week and I got a call back like literally the next day. It was pretty cool. The interview seemed too casual and outdated to me. Very unprofessional and not really talking about the job itself.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Valencia, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I filled out an application form on a Monday and got a call from the store manager on a Thursday asking if I'm available for a one-on-one interview later that day. I went to the store and was attended to almost immediately. It was a pretty informal interview. No question was too difficult to answer. To wrap everything up, the manager asked me to pick two outfits for her - outfits that should match her given preferences.
