Current Contractor - Anonymous Contractor

I have been working at Forever 21

Pros

The positive aspects of working at forever 21 are the friendly and caring environment, the helpful training and workplace experience, and the flexibility.

Cons

Some negative aspects are the low employee discount of 10%, and the quite messy state of most forever stores.

Advice to Management

I think management is doing well with managers being helpful and welcoming, perhaps just some better employee benefits would be helpful.
