    Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Forever 21.

    Interview Details

    I saw their post on Craigslist and I emailed them my resume. I got a call from the manager 2 days later for a group interview the next day. The interview was easier than I thought. The manager just asked us the basic common questions every other workplace would ask. From what I can remember, she only asked us four questions. She was really nice and friendly so it was a really comfortable setting. Since it was a group interview, it made it all the more easy. You just have to be really outgoing and enthusiastic and confident and have a smile on your face for the most part. They always hire those kinds of people despite your work experience and skills. She said she would call whoever was hired by the end of the day, and I got the call literally 10 min after the interview and started orientation a week after.

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Forever 21 in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went to the mall for the job fair, expecting people to be sitting outside and filling out applications but instead it was just a small table with 3 interviewers interviewing people. I totally thought the job fair was going to be a group interview but I was wrong. I waited a while for one of the interviews to be over (didn't take too long, 7 minutes?). The interviewer I got was very relaxed and dressed really casually as opposed to the other two which were dressed much more formally. She was super nice and just asked me the series of questions listed below. As she was wrapping up the interview she shook my hand and said, "Welcome to the team". I was so stunned that she hired me on the spot, I didn't even have to words to speak. I just stared at her and she said we'll give you a call soon about the orientation. Not entirely sure if I'll be able to hold the job considering the fact they are mass hiring, friends have told me that they hire 300 people to help set up the store then fire a whole bunch.

    The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Forever 21 in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    well I gave my resume to an assistant manager and she told me to come to the interview 4 days after I gave my resume to her in person. the interview was an open interview and there were around 19 people including me. only 10 were chosen to be hired. it's best to talk to some of the people near you, it helps to make you feel less nervous and seem more outgoing. the managers were so friendly so it made the whole process a lot more smooth.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Forever 21 in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    was referred by a friend who has been employed there for about 2 years. handed my interview in at the store, and immediately told to come in for an interview that was schedule in the following week. turns out to be a group interview, and a lot of people did not show up, only me and 3 other girls were there. The interview was great, got hired on the spot after the other girls left cuz i took a bit longer than the other girls to finish writing a question sheet. questions were shorten cuz there were only few of us, out of 4 of us only me and another girl were hired. and me and her always were first to answer questions!
    It is important to do research and always go the extra mile! for example, i was the only one who knew the founder's name, and i also added into my answer what year it was founded, and where the headquarters are. I could see the manager tallying my score up higher, it just shows that u r a better candidate because u actually did your research! Especially in a group interview, it makes u stand out even more!

    I went to the nearest Forever 21 store and I applied in person. They called me back the day after for an interview. It was a group interview ( i was with another person) and 2 managers were asking us questions. They were asking us the same questions individually. The managers were grumpy and unprofessionnal. They didnt even know a word in english and i had to repeat myself several times everytime they were asking questions.
