    I worked at Forever 21

    Pros

    I loved the clothing and getting to know all the terminology for the different styles. Made me switch open my wardrobe and open my eyes to fashion.

    Cons

    Cleaning up at the store at the end of the night was horrible. Forever 21 is a well known store so it does get visited a lot. Also working there would make you spend your paycheck there :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management was OK.

    Pros

    culture, experiences were fantastic to gain knowledge about the business workings. Management support is good

    Cons

    The perks could have been improved and sometimes the employees don't just mix that well. So I guess there isn't proper employee interaction within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    improve just a tad bit.

    I worked at Forever 21

    Pros

    For a beginner sales position the pay is decent, when in school you get to get a schedule that goes according to your availabilty, Manhattan location you get hours and you learn a lot on the job if you want to move on to a larger company. You will gain good experience and I respect the values of the store

    Cons

    Hard work , too much work not enough pay, management is not to good or responsible for people personal and important documents or information , not very good with responding and never answer phones also very bad with caring about their employees .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some better management and more people that care equally about there employees and the job as well as there checks, also it needs to be a change on getting access to payroll better

    I have been working at Forever 21

    Pros

    Stylish, great music nice friendly engaging environment many of my friends from school are here too. All the hours you can ask for.

    Cons

    Low wages. Not enough space for clothes. Lots remain in boxes we put under tables. Not enough registers the customers stand in line way too long. They are in need of expanding their stores to accommodate everyone especially with the fitting room hours and spacing.

  11. great company to work with
