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

Pros

They offer good hours, up to 40 hours/week part time or full time

Cons

Your 40 hours can easily be reduced to 20 when the store is not making enough money which is unfair for those paying bills, your income is not secure.

    I worked at Forever 21 part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Made a few friends / had discount of 10%

    Cons

    Was not paid properly for over time work. Was forced to work 5 hours off the clock per day and never paid for it.

    I have been working at Forever 21 full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    ~weekends off
    ~full time; up to 40 hrs

    Cons

    ~management is completely unorganized and unprofessional
    ~hours are EXHAUSTING!! You never work after 7am. And that is if your lucky! You will work 4am shifts and 5am shifts constantly, I've even gotten calls at 8pm asking to come in at 1am. If you look at all the visual merchandisers they all have bags under their eyes. Wonder why? Because we are ALWAYS TIRED.
    ~benefits suck and getting time off is so hard. You dont get PTO until your 6 months in, and it's still barely anything
    ~management is mean and hurtful
    ~no training what so ever! Figure it out on your own
    ~company documents are so hard to read! So unspecific.
    ~so many I cant think of them all.
