    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    I applied and was contacted by a recruiter to send photos and answer a few questions. Weeks later she called to set up an interview. I was told to wear leggings and a tank top. When I got to the interview the recruiter came down to get me and put me in a room where I was told I would be interviewed, after waiting in the room for about 15 minutes she came to get me and took me to another place where I just tried on clothes for about an hour for the buyer then the recruiter came back to get me and that was it and told me she would be in touch. I never met with the supervisor she told me I would meet with. I was very confused I WAS NEVER INTERVIEWED OR GIVEN A CHANCE TO SPEAK WITH ANYONE!!! THEY JUST USED ME FOR FREE LABOR and then emailed me to tell me that I was not chosen, like seriously? I'm so done with the company!!!!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Forever 21.

    Interview

    Application was sent in August, didn't get contacted until late December. Ever since, I was asked in for 6 times of interviews for two departments, within 3 months period. By the time they set the department that they want to process with me, the title dropped a grade. And the chair of the department had me waited for over an hour for a 5 minutes quick interview. They also made me visiting many stores in the greater Los Angeles area, yet, no interviewer ever brought up any question about those stores. Base on that, i can see the store visiting order was made by HR, but not the department that is interested in me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I waited in line to apply in store at the booth. I had an initial phone call and was invited for a group interview in the Sacramento mall. Over 100 people showed up that day and they took us in batches (for our scheduled times). I think it was about 25 interviewees at a time in one room with 2 manager interviewers. We watched a video and were asked basic interview questions as a group. I received a follow-up call the week after for a 1:1 phone interview and the offer the next week.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Broomfield, CO) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and I received a call the same day to set up an interview and was able to go in the next day. When I went in to the store I had to fill out another application and write out five answers to questions the manager wanted answered. I felt like this was kind of pointless because she had my original application and basically asked the same questions I answered on the sheet of paper.

    After filling out the paperwork she conducted an interview and asked basic questions. I was also required to pick out an outfit in the store and sell it to the manager as if she was a customer.

    The whole process took about 45 minutes and she offered me a job on the spot.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Fullerton, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview wasn't too bad. They talked about the company, and how things were run, and they sort of see how you react to what they tell you. It honestly wasn't too nervewracking, rather it was more casual. Just be genuine and give honest answers. The company wants to see that you're dedicated to what you do, and they stress that you should know your limits, because retail really isn't for everyone.
