Sales Assoicate (Former Employee), Wellington, FL – February 1, 2014
When I came into work, I would have to say "Hi" to everyone. It was a quite work environment, no one really was fun and happy working there. The management wasn't the best, the co-workers that I trained where always asking me questions and didn't really know what was going on half the time. The hardest part of this job was trying to coop what was going – more... on half the time, the managers would tell me to do a task and then I go out of my way doing it then they tell me they didn't want that task done. Overall this job was very stressful and I didn't enjoy working here at all. – less
this job was one of the best learning experiences for retail sales and customer service

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 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 – more... because each was different and required different jobs completed – less
Associate- Greeting (Former Employee), Tucson, AZ – January 30, 2014
A typical day would include working at the cash register, fitting room or on the floor. While on the floor it is a goal to help every customer. Co-workers do not work well in a team and are very independently driven. Management shows favoritism towards best dressed employees and not the most hard working.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Arcadia, CA – January 30, 2014
Pros: interacting with customers
Cons: minimum wage and to many employed so not enough working hours available.
It was great interacting with customers. However breaks were not given in a timely manner as well as too many hired at once so every employee had maybe 2 days at the most scheduled. Not enough hours available for staff numbers.
Sales Representative (Former Employee), Huntington Beach, CA – January 24, 2014
Pros: constant work
Cons: cut hours, short breaks, poor managment
Forever 21 was a clothing retail company that was very tight corporate. The management kept a firm grip on employees and ran a tight schedule based on hourly income and average dollar per sale. Presentation of the product and store upkeep was the manadatory obligation at Forever 21.
Fast paste job, but fun. I was able to meet new people. The enviroment was friendly.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Auburn Hills, MI – January 24, 2014
My every day job was to come to work and help others feel great. The main thing was to keep he customers happy and represent our clothes. My co-workers were hard working, but fun. I enjoed working with my co-wokers. Eeven if I said I didn't need help they offered to help me when I was on he floor anyway. The only hard part about the job was not seeing – more... a customer satisfied when they put on a piece of clothiing becuase they didn't like the way it fit. I always made a customer feel better because anyone can look good in clothes you just have to have the right colors. I really enjoyed seeing a customer walk out of our store smiling becuase they found the outft they wanted. – less
