    Pros

    Amazing discount on clothes Relaxed dress code Good work life balance Good benefits 2% commission Meet lots of cool people

    Cons

    Upper management will force employees to wear clothing although it is against they're employee hand book policy, if you don't wear the clothes you won't get hours and they will find a reason to get rid of you. No communication between district managers/corporate if you have internal issues within your store and can't rely on your manager you have no where to turn. Anything you say in confidence is never confidential. Very competitive selling atmosphere among team members, and management plays favorites, very little room to grow as the company is small and seems to be losing popularity among customers

    Advice to Management

    Better communication within the stores, if your stores are doing poorly look at the head (store managers) also store managers should not be allowed to force employees to wear the clothing, if you hire someone and tell them it's not mandatory you should keep your word, it's. Lawsuit just waiting to happen.

    Pros

    Discount! Super good for getting good quality jeans for a really low price. My managers were all cool, sure they had their down days but overall it was good! Low-staff so we got many hours. I was told it was easy to work up in True Religion. Really flexible schedule so I could do auditions if I wanted to.

    Cons

    The pay!! For a high end company, close to minimum wage pay rate isn't cool. You would definitely need a second job. Commission is crazy, you make a certain amount and they take out almost half in taxes! Honestly don't expect a lot of hours. I got 25 ish hours and then the next week I got like 12.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting hours!

    Pros

    If you're looking to move up in the retail environment, this a place where you can do that. -Room for growth -Fun environment -Close to corporate - You'll definitely learn about loss prevention

    Cons

    Characteristic of the retail world, schedules will be all over the place so I wont include that as a con. - Constantly having to readjust to new management

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing. My time here was not bad and if I had to choose a retail chain to grow at, it would be this one.

    Pros

    AMAZING discount, laid-back work environment, cool customers

    Cons

    Alot of standing around waiting for someone to come in, the commission can be higher or at least the base pay.

    Pros

    Finally got a good ceo in.

    Cons

    Too much damage already done from the previous one (David Conn). The executives didn't think they need people and the parking structure is only reserved for themselves. Regular employees have to walk 15+ minutes to the building from outside parking lot.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck!!!

    Pros

    Company was peaking at the time of employment. Opportunities to move ahead from position to pay. Management was awesome!

    Cons

    slow pace environment with excessive cleaning.

    Advice to Management

    Keep upbeat college/high school kids in this atmosphere. Depends solely on individual networks to drive sales.
