I have been working at Forever 21 full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

they do give you a decent amount of creative freedom and the other associates for the most part were easy to be around and became great friends.

Cons

ridiculously long hours and very unrealistic expectations for almost every position. floorsets change way too often and working on thanksgiving (that really happened) and other holidays are not ideal.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

limit people to the amount of clothing they can try on.

    I worked at Forever 21 part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Insight into a large company's take on affordable (cheap) trendy fashion. I would say the discount, but your discount is a joke compared to other companies. But then again the stuff is already very inexpensive as is.

    Cons

    Low pay, whack discount, fold clothes, typical slave labor retail.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eh none, keep it up, a new generation of desperate trendy late teens will always come needing a first job.

    I have been working at Forever 21 full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very fast paced, never boring and always a challenge. Was able to learn a lot of visual tricks and trained my sense of urgency

    Cons

    Some of the team members are not always there. Sometimes its like talking to a rock. Sales associates are required to do a lot with little payroll.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more recognition to those who do great. Create a more fun, team oriented working environment.
