Productive and fun place to work
Visual Merchandiser (Current Employee), Victoria, BCNovember 5, 2014
Pros: good music
Cons: slower in the winter months
Overall Forever 21 is a good company to work for. The most enjoyable part of the job would have to be having great coworkers and the good music. Hardest part would probably be overnight shifts every few weeks, although they were manageable.

Terrible- just terrible
Stock Associate (Former Employee), Scarborough, ONMay 13, 2013
Cons: they literally time your lunches and you get in trouble if you've gone over by 1 minute, management is terrible and rude
Management is probably the worst part, especially at Scarborough Town Centre. The managers only care about themselves. Employees are bossed around and treated poorly.

Sales Associate/ Visual worker (Current Employee), Surrey, BCJanuary 12, 2016
Always something to busy whether it was maintaining clothes, pushing product or helping out in the fitting rooms. Hardest part would be when we were busy and trying to keep up with maintaining the store at the same or faster speed it was getting destroyed at.

Pointe Claire, Montréal QC (Former Employee), Montréal, QCJuly 22, 2015
Pros: The clothes
Cons: Bad management
I had fun in the start, it was all fun and games working in a big store with friends. Until you realize the management isn't all that great.
You always felt like you were not doing well enough. You were never working " fast " enough.
