    Stock Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Covina, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Forever 21 (West Covina, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Was very unprofessional. The manager had us standing around for 15-20 minutes, the group interview wasn't like 2 or 3 people, there were at least 10 people there, and on top of that we were standing in the middle of the store.

    Assistant Coordinator Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Received a phone interview after one week applying on LinkedIn. After answering all her questions, the recruiter then asked me if I have time later the afternoon or the next day for a in person interview. I chose to be interviewed on the same day. After two hours, another recruiter called and confirmed with the time and sent me a confirmed email after. The in person interview was at 4pm at their headquarter. Met both the manager and Sr. director of the department (Sr. director was so busy so only stayed for 5 minutes). The entire interview took about 40 minutes. Mostly asked about what kind of experience I had and how those would related to the position they are hiring. Both are super nice and informative. In the end, the manager told me they wish to fill the position asap and it will took probably 7 days for them to make a decision and move on.

    I received an offer phone call exactly 7 days after. Accept the offer and the recruiter told me it takes 2-3 weeks for them to confirm on the offer before sending out the official offer letter. I received the offer letter and my first day information about 10 days after the verbal offer.

    Assistant Fashion Designer Interview

    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 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.

    Negative Experience
    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!!!!

    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.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Sent my application on LinkedIn. After a week, I contacted the HR recruiters on LinkedIn. Got a call the next day and was asked general questions: what I had done before, why I wanted the position and what salary I wanted. Then, the HR manager called me to set up an in person interview.

    The interview was one on one with the customer service manager. He wanted a discussion and make sure to get to know who I was as a person to see if I would be a fit with the Forever21 culture. Normally, his director should have been there but he couldn't make it.
