    Application

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

    Interview

    Recruiter was super nice and quick to schedule me in for an interview. I sent follow up emails after the interview and the recruiter said she would update me later on in the week, but failed to do so as I followed up once agin. She called me later in the day to tell me that the department took a while to update her then said the position was closed.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview first, then in person. Don't think about applying here if you have related work experience in the Korean businesses in the DTLA fashion district. They will go through the phone screening with you and tell you to come to their offices, but they will not hire you. Also, if they ask if you are bilingual and you say yes (Korean), expect the entire interview to progress in Korean.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Irvine, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied to Forever 21 on a Wednesday and was asked to come in for an interview that same Saturday. The interview was with the hiring manager and it was very laid back and relaxed, no stress really. We talked for literally 5 minutes and she asked about my past work experience and what I valued most with good customer service. She was genuinely very interested in my background and I was offered the position on the spot. I was asked to begin working that coming Wednesday but was unable to because of a conflict with classes.

    • What about the customer service is most important to you when you first enter a store?   1 Answer
    • Due to it being summer and the mall extending its hours of operation, there are instances when you may have to stay after hours to help prepare for the next day. Do you have any problem working past 10PM?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I had a conflict with my summer class/training schedule that could not be worked out. I also received a job offer from another company.

    Visual Merchandiser- Corporate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Culver City, CA

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Culver City, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a talent acquisition recruiter on LinkedIn and she asked me what positions I was interested in, I told her and she set me up with an interview for the next week. I was asked to bring my resume and print and filled out the application, meet with the Assistant merchandise manager in the AM at the store. I showed up and the AM was in the middle of merchandising, she stopped and said she was going to grab a senior stylist to interview me as well. Super unpersonal we sat in the middle of the loud mall, and as they were interviewing me the AM kept getting distracted by passers-byers.

    I was well prepared for this interview, did my research on the company as well as the position. As the interview started they were just telling me about the position and what it entailed. They asked me to tell them about my self so I didn't tell them all the places I worked but rather all the experience I gained and they seems impressed and said I would need all those skills in this position and some were a plus. Next they asked me where I would think they get inspiration from for the men's Shop and I said Zara and explained why, she told me yesterday Zara is a good one but Topshop is who they follow for merchandising and styling! That was a huge turn off for me because honestly I am a truly creative person and I get inspired from several different sources but I never copy, or follow anyone else's ideas!

    Next was the merchandise test. They asked me to build a wall in the men's department representing the guy I thought was missing in the department along with styles for mannequins to fit that same style. She gave me 30min. And when I was done i explained my concept and she said ok. She didn't look disappointed or like she approved either, but she took pictures, jotted down some notes and sent it off to whoever. I got a call the same day from the recruiter saying she wasn't sure what their reason was but I didn't get the position. I thought the interview went great.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Arcadia, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    My interview process was an open interview, and it consisted of asking me how fashionable I am and told me situations and asked what I would do about it. Just think of it like a conversation with them instead of an interview, at least that's how I felt about it.
