Visual Associate (Current Employee) – Syracuse, NY – January 20, 2019
In the beginning it was good, hours was good, and i liked the managers. But once the store was under new management it went all downhill. Hours were cut, pay didnt go up with position, and it became really stressful.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – January 20, 2019
This job is not worth it. Every manager I’ve met from my store and other store is so rude. They act entitled and like they are so much better than you. Even the district managers and other people from within the company! They don’t value their employees at all and won’t work with you easily at all. They take advantage of you and have unrealistic expectations.

Forever 21 is a summer job just to start off with but has not advancement. Its retail so you take what you are offered. There is not much to explain about it, except its retail, so its has a high turnover rate.
VISUAL MERCHANDISER/SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Limerick, PA – January 20, 2019
This company welcomes a diverse range of cultures across the lifespan. The most stressful part of the job was watching costumers drop items and cleaning up after them. An outsider would rate the store as a terrible place to work due to the mess the customers would make. It really is not all that terrible. Team work, especially, was a very important factor on any typical day.
Visual Merchandiser/Head Cashier (Former Employee) – Orange, CA – January 18, 2019
From a fellow fashionisto I loooooove clothes it was a start that allowed me to be me and be free. create and style and personal style clients that brought me opportunity and brand styling to a affordable everyday wear line such as f21. you have three modern, contemporary, and party girl and each lady wants to be heard through her changes... the one thing I could say is they should provide more positions and agency for more jobs and opportunity.
friends, decent jobs.
30 min lunch, discount not only 10%, need more agency.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – January 18, 2019
This job place was fun and I always had something to do. Never a dull moment when it came to having to organizing the store during closing time. There was always something to organize during the day, so we all kept busy.

Co-Manager/Store Manager (Current Employee) – Woodburn, OR – January 17, 2019
If I could give them a negative star I would and the only reason I gave "Job Culture" three stars was because of my team. Upper management noticed the things my direct manager didn't but gladly took credit for. Forever 21 is a big "click" of mean girls and you'll be lucky to find a store manager who actually doesn't like drama and follows the DM's scheduling rules. If you want to get into retail, Forever 21 can and will teach you about fast fashion and team building but you'll learn a lot about yourself too. Wall up and get that money. Do not apply if you're sensitive and want to feel appreciated. Apply at your own risk because no one cares about you in retail.
Manager (Current Employee) – Hampton, VA – January 16, 2019
Forever 21 was the most amazing place that I have worked. The work space work great people were nice and always willing to help the next person out. My store manager was great so at PTC store 0350 was the best in my eyes.
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Waterbury, CT – January 14, 2019
Management was childish and favored certain employees and would give them more hours.. ones the manager didn’t like they would give no hours or 5 hours for weeks! Very unprofessional and every single person that I worked with there quit. The customers were inconsiderate, the management was rude to employees and customers they just need a complete turn around
I wasn't too happy working at this establishment. We were very overworked and I felt very under-paid. M all closes @10 but we were there until midnight or 1 in the morning. There was a lot of cattiness going on and it just made every shift uncomfortable.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Sandy, UT – January 11, 2019
Forever 21 is fun to work at if you like retail. No customers will really talk to you. You get to help set up/clean up the areas of clothing. Management will tell you what you need to do and are not afraid to help you. The only hard part of the job was going home around 12-1am in the morning when my shift ended at 10pm as well as, you will never have a weekend off.
