Retail is good for getting yourself out there with communication and learning about money and sales . Organization is another skill that is helpful. You don’t get benefits other than a small discount but it was good to be able to be the first to see the new clothes before anyone else did.
I worked there for 5-6 months and quite because my hours were disappearing. I went from working more than 70 hours a month to working less than 10 hours a month.
Scheduling is very flexible, but they will sometimes call you on your days off and ask for you to come in. The P.O.S. system is hard to use at first but easy to learn. People are friendly most of the time but depends on how they're feeling that day.
Employee 10% discount, flexible scheduling
No parking/have to pay for parking, shady area

The environment was very judgmental and workers were very underappreciated. I ended up doing the job of several people. Anyone who was not considered good looking was hidden away at jobs in the back of the store and only came out to fix everyone else's mess after closing. There were no benefits, the breaks were often skipped and only lasted 15 minutes.The manager was also unwilling to work with me on my schedule and was reluctant to do any form of sift changes even when that issue already had participants willing to swap and resolve the issue very simply.
When working for forever 21 I enjoyed myself . The productivity was everything considering I'm always on the go and dislike sitting still too long.The team of co workers I had were great individuals all around everyone made sure the job was done , we collaborated well in most projects etc. Hours were very decent & flexible most of the time. Pay was decent & I absolutely adored the work culture . only downfall would be management needs better traning & skill set .
Productive, nice hours, great team
The job is okay as a summer job when youre on a break from school however, anyone who prizes their sanity shouldnt look forward to this as a long term gig unless you like to serve others. The hours suck, the traffic is super heavy in this store specifically, and the pay isn’t enough.
you were started out with good hours which made the job seem like it paid well. but as management hired more people than was necessary the hours disappeared. it is very unorganized. the pay is low and the staff are unfriendly. the discount applies to very little as well.
The managers were friends with everybody. Some people worked honestly and others played. The scheduled hours are not always fair but HR or store manager was willing to accommodate.
Breaks are not granted if you’ve worked under a certain amount of hours
I enjoyed my time working here very much. I had the chance to interact with new customers everyday.Due to my sociable personality I was able to build great relationships with my colleagues very quickly.
a good lunch time
Pushed to get people to sign up for the credit card, and emails even if customer isn't biting. Employees don't get a very high percentage in discounts, unable to hold clothing items for longer than a day. Not very much incentive for employees to do a good job, no benefits, haven't seen a performance review since i started working there.(it's been close to a year now) Very high plastic use!! feel like i'm contributing so much to world pollution just by doing a full shifts worth of shipment.
I liked forever 21 because they give discounts on the latest clothing that comes in the only downfall was they cut hours ,For the work you have to do is not worth it.
Forever 21 was a good place to work . Only problem was they took my name off the schedule without explanation then put my name back without any hours .
Good pay. Steady work
