    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.

    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 4 weeks. I interviewed at Forever 21 in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process took about a month from first interview to hiring. I applied online during Janurary, which was not the smartest since they are on a hiring freeze during Jan and Feb. The hiring manager finally reached out and called to set up and in-person interview. The interview was with the store manager, who had just started with the company a few months prior. Standard interview questions.
