    Relaxed atmosphere for a retail store. The people are awesome. Great for a busy college student. Managers are really easy to talk too . Everybody's does their job . You get really close to co-workers . The discount and the clothes

    The hours an employee gets a week is very little (8-12) . Haven't gotten a raise for two years now . Only 2% commission . Very slow traffic . Low volume

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Pay wasn't that great compared to other places I have worked. Bonus structure was in the works but not great!

    Cons

    Liked the jeans and was totally aligned with the selling and customer service culture but it was hard to sell outfits as the product beside denim was so limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on a better monthly bonus strutter to motivate your employees! Need to communicate with corporate to ensure stores have correct product in stores and more variety.
