How is this company still open?
Sales associate (Former Employee), Oakbrook, ILAugust 27, 2015
Pros: Few good friends
Cons: Everything else
I have t be honest, the only thing keeping this store's doors open are a bunch of whiny little girls that dont know how to be polite even if it hit them right on the face.
At first (it being my first job) I was super excited to start working but as time went on i grew to hate managment and a few co workers with it. First of all, managment is run by children who dont know how to maintain a store and the employees are a bunch of people who couldnt leave high school behind and started random drama for no apperant reason. I only got along with a few people which made it a bit bareable but even then the employee discount was 10% and the pay was minimum. We were worked like slaves in a sweat shop and wouldn't get out at closing until midnight or after.

sales associate (Former Employee), Buford Ga.August 27, 2015
Pros: friendly co- workers.
Cons: very messy all the time, late nights
Always busy, at the end of the day the store is all ways messy. sometimes we get out at mid-night which was not ok for the people that had school the next morning. Over all forever 21 is a great company to shop at.

Messy establishment
Sales Associate/Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), Glendale, AZAugust 25, 2015
Pros: got to see new clothes first
Cons: lazy co-workers dirty store
I did not like working here the store was filthy clothes were jam packed every where co-workers were very lazy. When closing the store we would stay up until 1:30 am cleaning the store. it was very complicated to help customers out because all the clothes were thrown either on the floor or on the wrong rack.

great to work
VISUAL MERCHANDISING LEAD (Current Employee), Queens, NYAugust 24, 2015
Both these jobs I was a sales associate. On a typical day at work I would assist my co-workers if they needed help, if the customers needed help as well I would also help them. I would work cash register and I would also work the fitting rooms. It was difficult some times especially during the holidays but I would adjust quickly and get things done

bad management, and bad work place.
stock (Former Employee), frienswood, txAugust 24, 2015
the company consisted of a young management, which led to teen drama within a normal day of work. overall it wasn't that great of a place to work.

Good after school job
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Queens, NYAugust 21, 2015
Pros: Discount in store merchandise
Cons: short breaks, rude clientele
Besides a quick way to make some extra cash after school and on weekends this is a terrible place to work. The management is all about favoritism and leaves little to no space to advance. The customers can be very nasty and rude too when all you are trying to do is be helpful and do your job.

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Manhattan, NYAugust 17, 2015
I assisted customers by finding items that would go perfectly with the outfit they envisioned and organized and arranged clothing while giving great customer service. I was also trained to work behind the Cash Register. I enjoyed meeting new people everyday from different places in the world and helping them find great fashion in a discounted price.

It was sometimes unorganized but I made the best of it and worked my hardest to ensure I left work satisfied. The coworkers were friendly, however management could have been more organized.

Replenish associate (Current Employee), New York, NYAugust 14, 2015
I learned a lot at work such as being a good sale associate and replenish. I have the greatest co-workers ever, we are a team like family, we help each other and that's the most attractive base. the hardest part at work is when people call out and i have to be by myself on a busy day it's the worst part. i enjoy my day at work when i see my team working hard and moving fast because that's who i am

Poor management
Visual (Former Employee), Roseville, MNAugust 14, 2015
Pros: Great people, Great hours
Cons: Short breaks, No healthcare
Working at Forever 21 consisted of knowing the sales for everyday you come in, look at the board before clocking in so each employee knows first hand the everyday goal. Management was stressful.Co-workers some were awesome, and some were very difficult to work with. The most enjoyable part of the was the hours.
