    I have been working at Forever 21

    Pros

    The hours they give are fine with me, and are pretty flexible especially with college students. I've met some nice people there and most of the managers are really cool (because they are also studying in college). There is so much nice clothing and employees get to see what comes in first (so if you want something, get it while it's still there; stuff goes out fast, and rarely do they restock). You should know a little about fashion too, and the latest trends.

    Cons

    We get a 10% discount which is nothing. Yeah, the clothes are at a decent price, but come on. Working until closing can get tiring, but with the few hours they give per week, I don't mind staying until 11 or longer. The most annoying thing is the customers. You should know where most of the clothing is, since they are categorized, but sometimes the women will ask for a specific item of clothing, detailing everything they are looking for, and you just won't know (the visuals change the placement of clothing every week, so everything will look totally different. This makes it harder for employees to know where everything is, making us seem like we don't know anything- we don't have shifts everyday so it's difficult to keep up. Only the managers know where everything is all the time.) And if someone asks for something on the mannequin, and it is the last one we have in stock, we are not authorized to take it off the manequin; only the visuals do that... So get used to getting some dirty looks from women who blame the employees for not having anymore, and get used to the complaining. Women are also the messiest; if they see something, and don't like it, they won't hesitate to put it anywhere else but the place where they got it. Yeah, it's our job to make sure everything is tidy and in it's place, but don't leave it on the floor. Oh yeah, and the pay is minimum wage. I'm looking for another place to work...
