    Sales Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Forever 21 (New York, NY) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Shortest interview ever! Every person was asked two questions. The questions tested your personality and how original, but still yourself you could be. The guy that interviewed me was super nice. I applied in person, waited on a line with at least 50 other applicants, which went a lot quicker than I thought.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Freehold, NJ) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied in person at the Freehold Raceway Mall location. About five days later I received a call to schedule an interview for the next day. It was a very short interview with the manager. It was extremely casual and relaxed. She went over what I wrote on the application and then asked a few other questions. I was offered a job on the spot and was given some paperwork to fill out after.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Forever 21 (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Part of your group interview process should include teamwork exercises to see how the candidates react to the situation. The teamwork exercises do not need to be related to the job position because they are being used only to evaluate each candidate's teamwork abilities. Some exercises can include breaking up the groups into smaller teams and having each team build a house of cards, telling each team to write an original short story or keeping the group intact and having candidates ask questions of each other to learn more about them as individuals.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Forever 21 (New York, NY) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Really simple process. Very unprofessional when I went to the store for an interview, interviewer forgot she was meeting with me and went on lunch and had me wait for her to get back from lunch. A quick 10 minute interview, where more than half of it was spent on picking outfits and merchandising them accordingly to my style.
