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

Pros

It is possible to move up in the company. Generally, they value the opinions of store managers.

Cons

Management at corporate level is unapproachable. Little changes were made by upper management to improve work environment. High turnover rate for sales staff due to poor training and lack of organization. Terrible work-life balance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take the advice of your employees; listen to their complaints. What works at a corporate level might not work within every store.
