    Pros

    You get thrown into this huge company and you learn many aspects of retail. If you want to grow in this company let it be known and work hard and constantly show dedication for the profession. You have to work well with others, work well under pressure, and be able to deal with good and bad customers. You make many friends at jobs like these and its always good to say that you made it through at least one year at a Forever 21.

    Cons

    The managers don't necessarily help you with working to much. Every store is different though. The way that employees are taken care of corporate wise is incredibly awful. As for in store. management teams do take the next step to make sure employees are fine. You work some holidays, you don't get overtime, and you work awfully long hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers should make sure that everyone is working with equal responsibilities. Unless someone is in a higher paying position everyone should work equally. Managers are supposed to help their sales team finish the job not just walk around and ask everyone if they're almost done.

    Pros

    There arent any. Well except there was pretty much unlimited overtime!

    Cons

    This company is the complete opposite from any other retailer I have worked for. Visually, no matter how many times you re merchandise a section or do a floor set, it still looks like one huge mess. Hiring is almost next to impossible to hire good talent. Not enough hours to schedule, seems like its a free for all. If you take pride in your job then stay away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get with the times! Our customers are constantly changing, therefor we have to change to meet what they are looking for! change is good!
