Cashier/Stock Associate (Former Employee), Markham, ON – August 27, 2015
Very big store with many tasks that need to be completed during the day to function at an efficient and productive level. As a stock associate the typical day would be receiving product, getting the product – more... prepped and ready for the floor, and working hand in hand with the merchandising team to get said product to the floor. As a cashier, it can be pretty monotonous ringing through transactions as there aren't many slow periods especially during holidays or special sales. The staff is quite young and it is easy to make quick connections. The management team was very flexible and understanding when it came to scheduling. The most enjoyable part of the job was working closely with my co-workers. – less
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Dartmouth, NS – February 16, 2014
The management was disorganized, instead of praising workers for their advancements, it was a very negative environment. I learned nothing from the company, I done well with my position because of past experience.
Recovery Specialist (Former Employee), Vancouver B.C. – January 31, 2014
Overall it was a wonderful place work if you ignored the drama between managers and different members of the team. I was slowly but surely giving more and more responsibilities that challenged me and gave – more... me the opportunity to develop new skills and grow. My co-workers were slightly insane but it made each day interesting. There is no typical to discuss because each was different and required different jobs completed – less
Sales Associate/Cashier (Current Employee), Hamilton, ON – December 13, 2013
I love working here. The staff is amazing and management is very understanding and have flexible work hours. You gain good customer service experience because they tell you exactly what they want from – more... you. You get the chance to become a personal shopper with every customer that walks into the store.
There are a few downs but then again nothing is perfect. Be prepared to stand for long periods of time. The lights are pretty bright along with the bright white walls sometimes gives me headaches. The music is constantly playing all day; yes it gets annoying. – less

Forever 21 is a great place to work as the management team maintains a healthy balance of manger and friendship with each employee. In addition, all employees are welcoming and friendly making you feel – more... more comfortable at your job. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the many different people who enter the store and speak various other languages other than English. It is often hard to communicate with customers – less

Management team was completely unreasonable. The store manager was one of the stupidest people I've ever met, it's questionable if she even finished high school. Store manager was so bad that other assistant – more... managers would quit and complain but still she remains. They hire so many people so good luck getting hours. The store is always messy because even though they've hired so many employees, they don't actually schedule a lot of people to work. Was there for over a year and was promised a wage increase but didn't get one. Put it this way, for minimum wage you're working your butt off for nothing. You will learn nothing here and you're constantly trying to prove yourself just to get hours for a sales associate job. – less
