Fun work environment with execellent management
Store Associate (Former Employee) – Coralville, IA – August 12, 2016
Working at Forever 21 is stressful, but rewarding. I learned listening and communication skills when dealing with customers, as sometimes retail workers are subject to less than pleasant attitudes from customers. I also learned to multitask, being able to assist customers, return and restock merchandise, and offer guidance to my fellow coworkers all at once was a skill necessary for the job! My store manager was driven, friendly, passionate, and willing to go above and beyond for both her customers and her employees. Her approach to management was #1 in my decision to stay with the company for the 2 1/2 years I was there. My coworkers were my friends, we spent appropriate time outside of work together and often helped one another on the job. The hardest parts of the job were the long hours and having to work on holidays. The thing I enjoyed most about the job was having a manager and coworkers that care about me, that is something I find is rare in the workplace today.
