    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Glendale, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Really pleasant, really nice interview :) First was a group interview and if they like you they call you back for a second, individual interview. They ask basic retail questions, not too hard. Make sure to dress trendy-ish. Don't be shy and be yourself :)

    Sales Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Newport Beach, CA).

    Interview

    I had a one on one with the store manager- basically if you dress cute. Seriously no blazers and slacks. You'll get the job if you're just yourself. Its truly not hard. They basically just want you to be hip and/ or edgy. I'd advise against nose rings and tattoos- although their policy may have changed. I worked in both Newport Beach and San Francisco- and NB they definately cared, SF- not so much. So gauge your audience and you'll do fine. I mean- if you want this job still.

    Anonymous Employee in Whittier, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Whittier, CA) in February 2016.

    Tips: they will make you pick an outfit to wear to a certain event and it doesn't have to match or anything as long as you explain why you chose those pieces (they want to know how well you explain things for customers)
    Also, dress stylish. For example, I wore slacks,'pointed flats, black and white polka dot button up, and a black statement necklace.

    Visual Merchandiser Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I interiewed in person with the asm and the store manager. It was really basic and conversational. They asked questions like what is your inspiration for style. And availability. I did okay. I thought I didn't get the job but they called back a week later. I requested my wage and got it. The problem however is that they hire very lazy people with no retail or sales skills and only a few hard working people. And they hire a lot of peope with no sense of fashion despite fashion being one of the cpmpany's core values. Employees should not be dressed so basic.

    It was pretty eaey. Applied online before summer when they started hiring, got a phone call two days later before I'd even followed up. Set up a group interview, went in and was hired on the spot, along with everyone else in my interview group (about 8 people). They're always desperate for new hires honestly.

    Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Palmdale, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    It was a group interview, there was about 8 people including myself, they went around the table asking some simple questions first to make everybody feel comfortable. The environment was really laid back but professional of course. For me it was the easiest interview i've been in. Good advice to give you is to be confident and be yourself! I did the interview yesterday and they called me today about the job offer, where I gladly accepted. I go in Sunday to turn in the paperwork :)

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were really different than any interview i've been in, I will not be adding them because you can't predict what they will ask you. Just answer the questions as honestly and confidently as possible!   Answer Question
