    I worked at True Religion Apparel full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I have never worked for a retailer that expects so much out of their managers. It great because you really learn all aspects of the business and if you were to leave and go anywhere else you'd be over qualified.

    Cons

    I have never worked for a retailer that expects so much out of you. They expect a lot from their manager and hold you accountable for every little thing. It can be stressful.

    I have been working at True Religion Apparel full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    At the time, when I started it was a smaller company and I had a chance to grow within positions. As the company grew, I was really exposed to all divisions. It was a fantastic opportunity for me to understand this fashion/apparel business.

    Cons

    There is not too much opportunity to grow in product development. In my specific situation, compensation was not an opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation and promotions are a great way to keep the really good people at your company. It gives an employee a sense of accomplishment and professional growth. If these opportunities were offered, you would probably not loose the best of the best employees.

    Pros

    Pros I interviews with both dm and sm of the company they were both down to earth asked very detailed questions lasted about an hour 15 mins but I got an answer in less than a weeks time

    Cons

    The cons were I believe the asm salary was a little low but it wasn't bad... Also they don't offer a bonus structure for asm's only sm's

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If your in management and want to come aboard be ready to read and be ready to soak a lot of info in at the same time... Not hard just a new system and info to input thru out.

    Pros

    Worked for this company for over four years. It's been a great. They really cared about their people.

    Cons

    They made a lot of operational changes to save money. However, it did not trickle down to the employees. They spent the money on new dept heads.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Love your people, more.

    Pros

    Great office, Great work environment. Staff is amazing and understanding. We all got along and made some new friends working there. They have great upper management that know what is going on in the industry to help stay with the trends and helps the design team reach it's goals.

    Cons

    The only downfall I can say is the location of the company. It's in the industrial side of California, but that is the only downfall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and just stay on top of the trends that is right for the company. Just do what you already do.
