    Average Interview

    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.

    Very basic and straightforward. Was contacted by recruiter shortly after applying on company website. Came in for an in-person interview and met with the Production Coordinator, the Manager and also briefly met upper management. Didn't ask too much about my previous experience - only wanted to know why I wanted to be in production, do I understand what the role truly entails, etc.

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • What is your past work experience, and do you have any experience with sales or customer service?   Answer Question
    • Have you ever experienced an instance where a customer was very unhappy? How did you approach the situation?   Answer Question
    • 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.
