"Good job during school, flexible, fun"

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

Pros

A lot of my coworkers and I got along very well. It was a fun environment and assistant managers listened to concerns and gave a reasonable and flexible schedule for college students. Perks are ok but then again items at F21 are cute and affordable.

Cons

The whole system of clocking in and out for work was very strict. Even if you were a hard worker, made tons of sales, kept everything nice and organized, got compliments from customers, get acknowledged for your work by upper management --- it didn't matter because you could get fired for being a minute late on clocking in from lunch!

Advice to Management

Provide more career insight for workers at Forever 21.
Restructure your clocking-in/out routine.

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

    Pros

    Frequent changes in the standards make you learn to quickly adapt to industry changes based on trend forecasting.

    Fun atmosphere and great co-workers

    Cons

    Management completely unstable. Worked there for over a year and had 3 different store managers and 2 district managers. The instability fizzles down into the team.

    Execs would come visit and be total A-holes. Cussing at people, throwing things around. Upper management is totally immature and they run the business like a high school.

    TERRIBLE DISCOUNT - 10%.

    Advice to Management

    Fight for your staff- raises ect and defend them against crazy execs.
