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

Pros

Frequent changes in the standards make you learn to quickly adapt to industry changes based on trend forecasting.

Fun atmosphere and great co-workers

Cons

Management completely unstable. Worked there for over a year and had 3 different store managers and 2 district managers. The instability fizzles down into the team.

Execs would come visit and be total A-holes. Cussing at people, throwing things around. Upper management is totally immature and they run the business like a high school.

TERRIBLE DISCOUNT - 10%.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fight for your staff- raises ect and defend them against crazy execs.
