    Pros

    Casual work environment, friendly managers

    Low retention rate, high rate of shop-lifting and nothing to do about it, minimum wage salary

    I have been working at Forever 21 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    it's a job with a paycheck so there's that

    Cons

    micro-managing, will not promote in-house, does not use the talent they already have in-house, lots of time and resources wasted on different, random and superfluous steps as if they have no idea what they're doing. Lots of lies from corporate to employees and you're told one thing, but then suddenly, the opposite is implemented. Stagnant roles and no room for growth. BS 'bonuses' and 'raises' that are more of a... benefit to corporate/ the owners than the employee. They don't care at all about their employees

    Pros

    The company was not good

    Cons

    Discount 10% Mangers How they treat their employees

    Advice to Management

    If an employee got seriously injured in a car accident and had a doctors note don’t not accept their note and then let them go because they can’t even stand up or move.

    I have been working at Forever 21 full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    No weekends. Consistent schedule. Didn't have to work overtime.

    Cons

    No training. Incredibly disorganized. Didn't get paid on time. Management was condescending and rude. Discount was worthless. Changed schedule constantly (had to work overnights without notice, and then switch back to day shift the next day).

  8. "Honest Review"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    • Compensation and Benefits
    Former Employee - Sales Associate in Seoul

    I worked at Forever 21 part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Co-workers and managers were nice and friendly. It's pretty fun if you're interested in fashion.

    Cons

    The system can be more organized to cut out unnecessary busy work. Probably depends on where you work country wise, but I had to work long hours ( about 9 hours) and it was very exhausting.

    I worked at Forever 21 part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Loved my coworkers and the fast-paced environment

    Cons

    Management doesn't do that much to recognize harder working employees and the employee discount is nothing compared to other stores. Hours sucked.
