    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Forever 21 (Birmingham, England) in October 2013.

    Interview

    When I was interviewed there I first handed in my CV to the store, I then was called and had a phone interview a few days later. It was very informal and the interviewer was very chatty and friendly. So be really chatty and friendly back. I then was asked to come in for a 1-1 which was also very laid back and was offered the job straight after the interview. From working there, I've realised they also do group interview a but I don't expect that to be too hard neither.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Forever 21 (London, England).

    Interview

    The process was definitely odd. It was a group interveiw at first. You had to know all the key facts about Forever 21, who founded it? Where is the first one? Then they would ask people to leave or stay. The people who stayed were onto the interview round, the people who left went home. Then you would have a one to one interview. Then you would get the call.

    I applied online – interviewed at Forever 21 (Hoover, AL (US)).

    Interview

    It was painless and easy. They just asked me to put together an outfit to sell to them and then just asked my availability. She said I looked perfect for the job and wanted me to be a visual merchandiser rather than the sales associate because I'm very fast paced.

    Interview

    I applied in store and spoke to the manager. Two days later he called me in for an interview, that was four days later. It was a group interview that was exactly 45 minutes. This group consisted of myself and two other girls. Don't go dressed up in office attire. They want to see your style. I dressed up in my own style and they really liked it. They want to see that you fit the Forever 21 look! They asked us questions like "Why F21?" "Tell me about yourself."

    Interview

    I applied online and get email for an interview about a week later. It was one on one interview, with I believe she is a hiring manager. She was nice, asking me pretty much basic questions. The interview last for about 10 minutes. She basically just keep telling it will be overwhelming job since I don't have experience in retail, and just gettin' through my resume. Make sure you know about the company, that will give you an extra point, stay positive, try to look at them while talking. It makes them know that you are confident, and just enjoy it. Its just another interview, and good luck :)

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Forever 21.

    Interview

    The interview was ok. However about 5 minutes into the interview I decided that the interview was a complete waste of my time. The interviewer did not have the decency to even give me her undivided attention that would have been required by her on my end.
