Average Interview
Application

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Newport News, VA) in May 2016

Interview

I completed a walk-in application. I had to wait some time before I was contacted by the hiring store manager. She scheduled me to come in for a group interview (it was me along with 4 other girls in a highly cramped stock room). The hiring manager seemed somewhat interested besides the fact she started our interview an hour late. I was offered the position and told when to fill out paperwork. Afterwards, I have yet to hear from her or the company about my schedule.

I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Miami, FL) in Jun 2014

Interview

I went in during a job fair and the interview process was fairly quick. I was in and out within 30 minutes. I grabbed an application and filled it out. I sat down at a table where a manager was seated and he interviewed me. He asked about my hobbies, my previous experience, why did i choose them, my strengths and weaknesses. He took notes. Be sure to dress trendy but professionally and smile a lot, they definitely make notes of that. This was on a Saturday and they called me for a second interview on Monday and told me to bring direct deposit info and a id. The second interview took long because they interviewer needed to come back from break. They called us one by one and the interview was really short and easy. Afterwards she asked if i brought the necessary documents and once I said yes she said I was hired and wanted me to stay for the orientation. I stayed and orientation took about 2 hours!

I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Freehold, NJ) in May 2014

Interview

Totally normal, cool manager, talked about my love of fashion and why I liked F21 (plus size section that's still on trend), she explained the pay rate and how it works. She left maybe a month after I started working there, as did 3 other managers. The store was a breeding ground for manager turn around

I interviewed at Forever 21 in Apr 2013

Interview

The interviewing process was done by group interview. There were around 5 other girls interviewing at the time. We were taken by the manager and an assistant manager to the mall's food court to conduct the interview, I suppose because there's really no backroom at Forever 21. We were given an availability sheet and asked to fill out the hours we could work. We were also informed that as part of our agreement with the company, we were not allowed to work at any other company that sold women's apparel. For the interview itself, we were asked a question and then answered in a round robin fashion. The managers took notes on the backs of our availability sheets. The questions I can recall are: How would you react/deal with witnessing another employee stealing from the company? what is a popular spring trend? what motivates us? We were asked for questions at the end before we all left. I received a call a day or two later. I was told what my starting salary would be. I tried to negotiate but the offer was firm. I accepted the offer, but declined a few days later when I received a better offer from another employer.

I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Smyrna, GA) in Jun 2012

Interview

The interview was just like the others have described on here. There were about 20 of us interviewed all at once in a corner in the mall! Extremely unprofessional!!! I am surprised they chose me because I didn't feel like I really got a chance to show my personality or skills. They didn't even ask about my skills, it was all about my outfit. (this explains why they have such poor service!)

Interview

Phone call offering group interview. Group interview consisted of one question, "why do you want to work here"? Only certain girls were asked to stay. One on one interview questions... "who is your style icon?" Got a call back the next day and accepted job. Seems like new people are always getting hired.
