    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Forever 21.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult was, when did you last give excellent customer service? The unexpected was, What animal would you be?   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Forever 21.

    Interview Details

    Group interview. It was very brief. I have great previous experience but the person who interviewed us had been doing quite a few interviews from what she told us and it seemed like she was very disinterested in this group that I was in. She asked basic questions such as what could you bring to the company?

    Interview Details

    I currently just finished High School so I wanted a job at retails since I had a lot of free time so I went to Forever 21 looking for a job. I was told to come in for a open house (open interview) that same day. I didn't get the job because I'm 17 and I guess they changed the policy but now one must be 18, I'm not sure if every forever 21 is like that.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Forever 21.

    Interview Details

    I got an application on a table in front of the store. I went home, filled it out, brought it back to the store, and 2 hours later I got a call for an interview the following day. The interview was very easy and literally lasted 5 minutes. 4 days later, I got another call for a second interview. This time it was a group interview with 3 other people. The group interview lasted up to about half an hour. The manager basically asked us a few questions and whoever wants to answer just goes.

    Project Management Office Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Forever 21 in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied Online - received a call the next day.

    The person I talked to was friendly, but asked questions off of a sheet of paper and didn't seem to want to make conversation.

    The questions were straightforward - what's your experience, what do you like about the company, etc.

    She then asked me what type of compensation I was looking for and when I told her, she said it was too much and then hung up quickly. I would have like to ask her what pay the job did have and thank her for her time, but I assume my compensation was out of negotiating range.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked what I knew about the company. I had done my research about company culture, size, and how it got started, but I felt as though she was looking for something else because her response was not very positive.   Answer Question

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ (US)
    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Forever 21.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed once, during a group interview of about seven people. I received a phone call that same day in the evening saying they'd live to bring me on. Advice: dress to impress! Seems like a no-brainer but definitely should not be taken lightly. First impressions are everything, especially since Forever 21 is a leading retail company for men and women's fashions. Stand out from other candidates by: having a great, business-casual outfit, extraordinary personality, friendliness, and positivity, and individuality/confidence in interview answers.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    This was my first job. I began as a sales associate and It was the perfect retail store to gain customer service experience because of the company's fast pace, high volume, and diversity. However, I would not say that this is the greatest company for someone interested in growing with because it is so large. Depends on location, but there is a lot of competition between ground level employees (sales associate) or any position wanting to advance to a higher position. Definitely takes determination, excelling perseverance, and patience!
