I am trying to get the pink checker pattern to go on top of the red shapes. I have been trtried using the minus front, minus back, etc. I tried to do a clipping mask, but I might not be doing it right. Please help!

Select the red shapes.. choose
Object > Compound Path > Make
Move the red shapes above the checkers on the same layer.
Select the red and the checkers and choose
Object > Clipping Mask > Make
That should do it.
An easier solution would be to make a pattern swatch of the checkers, then just fill the red shapes with the pattern.
