    Pros

    Not really too much to say here. The only pros are experience working a high volume retail store and store discounts for me and my family.

    Cons

    Cashiers, sales, and stockers are hired by Forever21 with practically no experience. Trying to put together a schedule, a team, a company with the employees in my store is a challenge to say the least. In addition to trying to meet store sales goals, I'm resposible for maintaining a professional environment and getting people to work together. Oh yeah! and there's customers. I almost forgot about that part.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate potential hire's maturity and ability to work in a team

    Pros

    fast paced environment, employees really band together, chance to meet people and work on your small talk skills, learn how the retail industry works.

    Cons

    starting at forever is a sink or swim experience that can be very overwhelming. during the first few shifts you don't feel supported because it's typical for people to quit very quickly. once you prove yourself though people can be very supportive.

    the pay isn't the best

    Advice to Management

    it's better to tell individual associates if they aren't recovering their sections well than to discuss it with others.
