    I have been working at True Religion Apparel

    Pros

    Familial feeling in the work place while maintain professionalism. Sales associate job pays hourly wage plus commission. In most jobs sales jobs with commission things can get to feel cut throat, however that is one thing True Religion has overcome and I would say is one of the top reasons I chose to work there.

    Cons

    Hours are horrible during regular season and absolutely absurd and unfair during the short but ever so dragged out holiday season.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Other Denim companies give employees free jeans in order to help sell new products. Im pretty sure true religion is one of the only or few to be stingy when it comes to providing and gifting loyal employees with merchandise.

    Pros

    Good health insurance if you are not hired as temp (however, part of the company's restructuring is to eliminate existing employee with temps whenever possible).

    Cons

    Upper management completely detached from reality while overlapping middle managers try to eliminate each other playing the hunger game instead of working together as a team. It's quite obvious that the executives are not in for the long term.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing the numbers game and start focusing on product quality and employee morale.

    I have been working at True Religion Apparel full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    70% discount. Taking bold risks.

    Cons

    New staff came/ coming in arrogant. Know-it-all attitude. Ready to "fix" everything and highly critical. Highly political climate. Fear culture came after the layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers should be reviewed by their staff so you can learn whether they are good managers. The reserved parking for managers is highly elitist...loose it! Too many of the mid level managers suck up.

    I have been working at True Religion Apparel full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic DM leadership, professional environment.

    Cons

    Store managers don't run stores appropriately or according to policies. Commission is on the chopping block. No overtime permitted. Workload is unrealistic at times (numerous window displays, delayed merchandise deliveries, late arrivals, etc.). Regional is not a presence in the businesses - lingers in NY market and plays favorites. Over the last few years the company has become a political mess. Benefits are also from CA, so coverage is minimal unless you live in California.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Store-level employees need to be compensated more fairly. Most employees will jump ship if commission is eliminated unless every employee receives at least a 25% wage increase. Create any opportunity at all for tenured sales associates, key holders & assistant managers to travel and/or partake in workshops to nurture talents and promote development form within.
