    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.

    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

    Great Discount
    Sales associates and some managers are very friendly and helpful
    Not a very competitive atmosphere, which is nice..I worked in all of the stores in NYC and the atmosphere is very negotiable, sales associates are respectful.

    Cons

    Most the store Managers are horribly disorganized and are a walking train wreck. They are mean, take their anger out on sales associates and honestly seem very bitter.
    The store is always understaffed, yet anyone barely gets any hours. most of the time they are in need of managers, yet hire a bunch of part time employees instead and give each over laughable hours .. Like 13 hours a week.
    the theft in the store is insane, the regional and store managers act as if we should rip the clothing out of the customers hands.. WHICH IS DANGEROUS! Always try to go by the handbook while addressing theft, the customers can be shady at these stores.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you hate retail and are bitter about being 40 and not moving up in the company, go somewhere else.. You are ruining the environment for the staff. Also stop being cheap with promoting people to full time or key holder positions, you are letting great people go elsewhere for jobs,,and it's taking a toll.
