Visual Merchandiser Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Forever 21.

Interview

I sat down with the visual merchandising manager and store manager. It was pretty relaxed. They asked me the normal questions like tell me about yourself and why did I want to work there. Then they gave me 3 celebrities and I had to style 3 looks for them, complete with accessories and then put the clothing back where it belonged after describing the looks. I had a second phone interview with the visual manager and had to style another look and email him the photo.

    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.

    Turned in the application and set up an interview the same day.

    The interview was a group interview, out in the food court. She would ask us questions and write down notes. She then gave a different situation for each person to answer. By the end she told us that we'll get a call within a week, if there's no call we didn't get the job.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Lancaster, PA) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Met with the store manager and visual team lead. This was for a new store opening, so after I was hired I commuted almost 90 minutes to the store I was training at before the new store opened. This was not my ideal process, but they compensated me for mileage which was nice.
