    Retail Sales Associate and Stock Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne (Australia)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Forever New (Melbourne (Australia)).

    Interview

    First of, the person that I was meant to meet forgot about the interview, and couldn't make it in the end. Second someone else did the interview without any prep and knew nothing about what I was applying for and therefore was not able to answer some questions regarding the role. It was just a very disappointing first impression of the company. The person that interviewed me was lovely though. Even though I knew that I was more than qualified for the role, I'm actually glad that I did not get an offer, after learning more about the company, its unprofessionalism and of its high turnover rate.

    Interview Questions

    • Very basic out of a the book kind of questions (the interviewer literally just read out every question from the pages). Very repetitive questions.   Answer Question

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Forever New (Perth, Western Australia (Australia)) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Handed in a resume to a local store. Done with Store Manager at a nearby coffee shop, casual process. Asked a few questions about retail experience and a few questions about my personal life.

    For more recent interviews, applicants are required to apply online and will go through a screening process before being interviewed 1:1 with a Store Manager. Previous retail experience and an referral for a current employee will be very helpful.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Pay is non negotiable, depends on age and based on the retail award. For casuals, availability can be quite flexible but depends on what the store needs.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Forever New (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in May 2012.

    Interview

    It was an amazing experience. The company is really passionate about the things they do and I like how they try to sell affordable clothing without looking cheap. I applied online because the store wasn't open yet, got a phone interview call about 2 3 weeks later, they asked common questions like what's your availability, where did you last work, describe your experience with that company and what did you like and not like about it and of course salary expectations. about a week later a got another call for a group interview, the representative from forever new made me feel really comfortable, she was so friendly and you can tell that she really believe in the company and the products. She talked a little bit about the company and asked us to introduce our names, pervious job, why want to work at forever new and lastly if we could be any animal what would we be. Pretty easy questions, they have some company values, like passion, quality, service, customer service and such like that, and we were asked to pick a few from the list and tell them why we believe it plays an important role. Lastly we had to think of a creative way to sell an outfit, like a role play, fashion show, song, rap anything really, that's most,y because the store wasn't open yet, so they couldn't tell us to run around the store and make an outfit and describe why we choose what we chooses and how would we sell it to a customer. Overall a very positive experience, I would recommend dressing very similar to forever news style for the interview and if your gonna wear jeans, at least make it look professional. This is a retail store is that solely based on top trends and styles. I also like how the company sends rejection emails, so your not continuously waiting for weeks for a call back. One of the reasons why I got the job might be because a brand new store was opening so they hired a lot of people. Even if you don't have any retail experience for a sales associate position, they only care about your passion and willingness to learn, because they believe that being a good sales associate is something they can always teach, but finding someone with passion is really important to the company. I wish you all best of luck.

    Apparel Design Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne (Australia)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Forever New (Melbourne (Australia)) in March 2011.

    Interview

    The interview was scheduled through a recruiter. I was told by the recruiter to prepare heavily on trend research. The interview was conducted by the head brand manager/merchandiser and head of Human Resources. However I was not told what role the Human Resources person which was a bit confusing in terms of who to answer certain questions as I thought she was a creative. The merchandiser essentially bombards you with questions at firing speed. She asks about trends, what designers do you look for inspiration, what designers do you think Forever New looks to for inspiration, what about the assortment or product do you see needs improvement, how would you improve it.
