I interviewed at Forever 21

Interview

Very unprofessional, the person interviewing me was a visual merchandising manager. Took weeks to actually reserve a day to interview, too much back and fourth. Asking me personal questions about my family life and personal opinions.

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Roselle, NJ) in Jul 2018

Interview

I had a total of 4 interviews. I was ultimately offered a position but I turned it down due to pay and PTO. Forever21 offered me 10K less than what I am already making and the rate at which you can earn PTO is very slow. As a store manager I would only earn 5 days after a full year of working. Most management positions at least allow you to use PTO and pay back throughout the year and if you use it before you earn it it comes out of your last pay check.

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Forever 21 (Braintree, MA) in Jan 2018

Interview

At first it was great, the district manager interviewed me first and we clicked very well, had similar views, and great ideas. Unfortunately their Vice President of stores who handles the Boston area is horrible. She has no personality what so ever and no emotion. I felt like I was interviewing with a robot and thats honestly in my opinion not the kind of person to manage any kind of business. She had zero concept or understanding of any other retail structures or companies but assumed she did and even tried to educate me on my previous company that I was with for almost 10 years and everything she said was false and in-accurate assumptions. Do not waste your time here!

I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Forever 21 in Oct 2016

Interview

Very brief, over-the-phone interview from corporate HR, then a second over-the-phone interview with direct supervisor. They asked pretty general questions about my background and retail experience, and what my future career goals are. They made me an offer shortly after, to which I countered and they accepted. Overall it was very easy and they were friendly.

Interview Questions
  • Asked about retail experience, and why I would be a good fit with Forever 21 and their customer.

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Forever 21

Interview

Waited over an hour because they forgot they scheduled my interview. Come to find out after waiting that all the positions were filled. So the SM who was supposed to do the interview had the co manager do it for 'experience' apparently. They weren't exactly polite either, it felt more like an interrogation than an interview. Just overall etiquette was lacking, they said they plan to call me back for a different position but I have no desire to work for a company this unorganized and unprofessional. Really disappointed in the overall lack of character shown by the management team. Professional courtesy is a requirement in this industry.
