    I worked at Forever 21 full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Non- micromanage
    easy to promote
    great pay for retail

    Cons

    Inconsistent hours, was still not full time with benefits with a manager title... after working there for nearly 2 years! If you slip up once in the holy world of the numerous managers, you can consider your hours basically non existent. Expected to meet unexpected deadlines out of no where that need to be finished before the next day... that should take a week! ABSOLUTELY NO DIRECTION!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pull your head out of your ____ !! Apparently cashiers are the true leaders of the world in this company... and the rest of us are the scum of the earth.

    Managers are wary and unforgiving of minor mistakes that may be their fault for not giving proper instructions.

    I have been working at Forever 21 part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Always know about sales. They pay slightly above minimum wage.

    Cons

    Don't always receive sufficient instructions. At times managers break rules or allow favorites to break rules. Will get angry at employees for minor mistakes. Sometimes managers embarrass employees.They use negative reinforcement, punishment, most of the time and engage in extensive micro-management. Managers waste time consulting with one another about simple decisions. Sometimes there maybe many employees attempting to clock in at once so it makes people late, because we have a one minute window to clock in, and the managers begin the group discussion (wrap in) without some people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use methods other than negative reinforcement. It just stresses out employees and doesn't encourage them to do a good job. If managers have a negative attitude and are easily upset by mistakes then that creates a negative work environment.
