Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
London, England

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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 Question – The most difficult was, when did you last give excellent customer service? The unexpected was, What animal would you be?   Answer Question
