fun place to work
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Des Peres, MOAugust 7, 2014
Pros: fun environment
Cons: short breaks, low pay, only 10% discount
loved working here, the coworkers and managers were great. the music was a little irritating after a while, but that's tolerable. the discount was barely a discount (10%) and there isn't much room for advancement in the company.

Busy and easy workplace
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Oklahoma City, OKAugust 4, 2014
Pros: discounts
Cons: short breaks, standing all day
A typical day at work would be a busy at work. There are many customers coming in and out of the store and many of them are friendly and would ask for assistant; as my job, I would provide it to them. The management of the store was fairly good. The managers are always running around getting things done and they made sure their employees were doing – more... their job as well. My co-workers were very nice and helpful. The hardest part of the job would be standing all day. The most enjoyable part of the job would be being able to provide the customers what they want to their full satisfaction. – less

VISUAL MANAGER (Former Employee), CAAugust 4, 2014
Management varies greatly from location to location
Company not really in line with it's "Christian" beliefs
Fun environment, if you are working with the right team
Compensation for management has too much of a grey area which allows upper management to easily find ways to deny earned bonuses

Great opportunity to gain retail knowledge
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Towson, MDAugust 2, 2014
Pros: opportunities to learn merchandising task
Cons: short breaks
Working at Forever 21 allowed me to learn, not only about being an excellent sales associate, but also how to merchandise and display merchandise. Co-workers in higher positions were more than willing to pass on their knowledge in order for you to advance in the company as well. I mostly enjoyed assisting customers.

Productive environment
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Cherry Hill, NJJuly 29, 2014
A typical day at this job is getting a section of the store from the manager and making sure its organized and all the cloths are in the right place. I learn to be patient with costumers and make sure what they want comes first. The management was bad when I worked there because the managers we had were very unorganized and unprofessional as well as – more... the co-workers but I managed to do my task. The hardest part of this job was keeping your section clean and attending a costumers needs. The most enjoyable part of this job was seeing your section clean and handled. – less

Everyday retail job with a fashion savvy atmosphere
CASHIER/SALES ASSOCIATE (Current Employee), Sunrise, FLJuly 26, 2014
as a sales associate working on the floor consist of cleaning and doing go-backs (putting unwanted clothes back). i learned how to maintain a section and as a team leader i was in charge of assigning breaks and making sure other coworkers tasks were completed. Co-workers are nice, sometimes a bit annoying but for the most part everyone was friendly – more... and accepting. management is lazy but get the job done and listen to any concerns you may have, very understanding. Being a cashier is all about speed and efficiency. lines can get big an hectic so you must keep your cool and make sure you scan all items and remove all censors. what i enjoy most is the jobs fashion forward dress code. – less

Worst company ever!!!
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), CAJuly 25, 2014
Pros: met some cool people
Cons: can't hang out with those cool people if your management
I took a huge pay cut just to get out of this company. It's extremely stressful and employees aren't cared about. If there was a death or something tragic in your family, they expected you to still come in for your shift and looked down on you for calling out!!!! The hours were long and then you got yelled at about payroll and overtime. Maybe if there – more... wasn't 10+ racks of go backs every other night that wouldn't have been an issue but the district managers steer you in the wrong direction and then frown upon you when their idea failed. – less

Forever 21 is NOT the place to be
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Arlington, VAJuly 23, 2014
Pros: getting to look at clothes throughout the day, get to express your individuality, socializing with the customers
Cons: discount, management, and everything else that wasnt listed in pros
This job is terrible. At first it was a cool place to work at but that was during the first month maybe. Managers are very unprofessional. It seems as though they allow anyone to become managers. But what can you really expect when the higher managment is not that much better, seems like there is no participation in their store but thinks they have – more... a idea whats goin on in it according to "the managers" .They have favorites and it shows. They continuously claim there is no hours because of sales but manage to hire a boat load of people. The managers communication is awful. One will tell you to do one thing & here comes the other saying something else. They want all this work put in when they treat their employees less than the customers as in the discount which is 10%!! Some co workers are cool and are willing to help you out. But in my experience they focus on how where a team.....NO for the most part it's everyone for themselves. Oh & they are on your back all the time & dont like when you stop for even a second to talk to your co workers and STRESS customer service way to much its like helping a customer isnt good enough they would much rather you jump down their throat to make them buy everything in the store. & how can I forget the yearly raise! HORRIBLE. This is a job for a person who's still young and dont have many bills to pay. – less
