    I have been working at Forever 21 full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free food on Friday is a huge plus, it's gross usually but at least it is free.

    Cons

    Awful management and no direction. Trying to do anything creative and move forward is impossible. I was lied to during the interview.

    Advice to Management

    Quit being jerks.

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

    Pros

    It is possible to move up in the company. Generally, they value the opinions of store managers.

    Cons

    Management at corporate level is unapproachable. Little changes were made by upper management to improve work environment. High turnover rate for sales staff due to poor training and lack of organization. Terrible work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Take the advice of your employees; listen to their complaints. What works at a corporate level might not work within every store.
