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

Pros

Getting to know the newest fashion trends first. Being able to wear the newest trends at work.

Cons

The company does not pay very well for the amount of work they expect you to do. Customers are often dissatisfied with the return policy and many times you are yelled at for it. The company also does not have a good discount for their employees.

    Pros

    If you love fashion, you're getting hands on experience no matter what position you fill.
    Friendly atmosphere.
    The work isn't too difficult- don't really have to think.
    The hours are not usually too bad.
    If you're in high school, looking for a way to make a little cash then this job would be great for you!

    Cons

    Not very fulfilling.
    On your feet a lot.
    This will probably not turn into a career.
    Some of the people there are a little strange/not motivated at all.

    Pros

    My coworkers and management team are a delight to work with. It's a friendly and positive environment to work in. The work isn't difficult or complicated, you just need an ability to multi-task and make quick decisions in a fast-paced environment. This is a good place to gain experience if you are new to retail or the workforce. This is a good job if your are still living at home or going to school.

    Cons

    The scheduling is inconsistent and solely relies on daily sales rather than the tasks at hand. One week you may work 35 hours, the next week you could be working 12. Work/life balance is difficult because your shift may get down cut due to poor sales, or you could be called in because of an unexpected rush. Corporate expects stores to exceed sales using the absolute minimum amount of payroll. The technology they use is slow and dated. Internal communication about sales events, markdowns, promos, and visual elements are given with little notice. Some, not all, management is hired from outside the company. Also, the only way you can find out about open positions if if you avidly check their hiring website. There's little recognition and appreciation for good hard-working associates.

    Advice to Management

    I think there should be more motivating factors and recognition of associates, even on a small scale. Hire more from within. Maybe have a more open communication system between stores about available positions within a district so employees can be more informed about career opportunities with the company. And lastly, stop penny-pinching everything!
