    I worked at Forever 21 part-time

    Pros

    Loved the people. My specific location had such a family like atmosphere which made me really want to be there everyday. There are sales goals but the atmosphere was less of a cutthroat competition and more of a collective team effort to reach goals.

    Cons

    Customers. They suck about 20% especially in such a high traffic store where you are stretched thin every single second of every single day trying to please them without getting complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being awesome
