Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Palmdale, PA (US)

I have been working at Forever 21 full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The relationships you make with colleagues is memorable. Fashion becomes 2nd nature as your get the first look in new trends.

Cons

No appreciation from company(Supervisors, DM, RM). Poor discount.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Always encourage and push people to be at their best, not comment on who they are for making minor mistakes. Actually take the time to use coaching methods. There is a difference between teling and asking but still reinforcing what needs to be accomplished.

    I have been working at Forever 21 full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay, but still not enough to put up with the crap.
    Large company, many stores.. if you needed to transfer.
    And that's it.

    Cons

    Don't work at a large box store.....smaller locations are better!
    I've gotten threatened by employees twice and NOTHING was done about it.
    Zero training.
    Lack of organization.
    They will tell you they rotate weekends off but thats not the case.
    I've gotten asked twice now to work off the clock at home. (from SM and DM) NO THANKS!
    Extremely stressful environment to the point where it makes you want to walk out.

    I could go on for days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't take threats lightly. Better communication with your management team. Lose the attitude and be a professional.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
