    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Forever 21 (New York, NY (US)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Went to an open call at the Union Square location. We waited a good 45 minutes until they gave us applications to fill out. Took us five at a time and had group interview. The employee asked us three questions. He then asked for all our applications and resumes. He calls the names of people who make it to the next round. I pass the first round, and we are taken two at a time into another room. We were handed our resumes & applications, the others were told theirs would be on file. I honestly thought we would meet with someone of a higher position for more interview questions, but we were handed packets with legal papers and told our salary. I was basically hired on the spot, based purely on the interview questions. I left with my resume & application- no one really looked at it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Forever 21 (Elizabeth, NJ (US)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was easy. I was nervous that it was a group interview since I usually get overpowered but it was easy. Forever 21 in kind of unprofessional. The job was supposed to start at 11, they told me to come back at 2. Came back they had us sitting there waiting until almost 4! \ The manager who was interviewing us told us that he was going to text us that night letting us know if we were hired. He never texted us and I thought I didn't get the job. 4 days after I get a text at 11:43 pm telling me I was hired and would have to be there for orientation at 9 the next day. Surprise, surprise we were sitting there waiting for an hour and a half.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Forever 21 (New York, NY (US)).

    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."

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Forever 21 (Huntington, NY (US)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I was lucky and I think they really needed workers. I applied online then again in person, since it mentioned that thru email. Filled out a paper app that was extremely similar to the online one. They surprised me and asked for an interview right then. It was very relaxed and go-with-the-flow, and the other workers seemed chill and friendly.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Forever 21 (New York, NY (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very laidback and chill. It was a group interview with 3 people including myself. The hiring manager only asked three questions: what do we think customer service is? Why forever 21? How would we describe ourselves? Be sure to be yourself and be polite. The other two applicants had experience whereas I didn't but I didn't let that discourage me.

    Interview

    Group interview, if theyre doing an open house make sure to get there EARLY,i came in an hour late and there was a giant line from one end of the building to the other! Oh also the people for this company are so unprofessional,it will take them weeks to call you back for training, and they don't even give you a schedule you have to call and they don't even answer the phone when you do, please look for a better job opportunity somewhere else forever 21 is not worth it, it really is just a waste of time.
