    I worked at Forever 21 part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Basic job to gain basic experience.

    Cons

    I don't really feel that they give you opportunities to move up within the company. They will hire for a manager position but don't really give the option to others on the sales floor to move up.


  2. "Fun filled yet pretty annoying job. However I loved my job because of my co-workers."

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

    Pros

    Management at the time was pretty well organized. Everyone works as a team. It's pretty easy to get recognized to the management team and corporate as well. Managers treat you fair and do you favors as long as you do your part as in clocking in when they call you for last minute. Store meetings were always fun, managers know how to make it educational but entertaining at the same time. If you are a full-time you do get pretty decent benefits.

    Cons

    Training was not helpful. They pretty much throw you out there. Managers expect you to do 2 racks of go backs on your first day of work, like is that even possible? Customers are outrageous in this store, they get really upset with the whole "final sale" and make it a big deal. So prepare yourself to deal with that especially if you're behind the cash wrap.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lack off on training, especially if you want an associate to be at everyone's level. It is easy to mold someone into learning something fresh and new, or someone who has already experience it but it's always good to reassure someone a few tips and tricks.

  3. "Awful Management Honestly"

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

    Pros

    Barely, my coworkers made it bearable but not enough to stay for that long.

    Cons

    10% discount which barely did anything, return policy was awful, management expects too much from us, and customers are just plain rude.

    Advice to Management

    Take your employees well being into consideration. We're the ones making money for you greedy twats.
