Not Bad

Key Holder (Former Employee)

I worked at True Religion Apparel full-time for more than 3 years

Pros70% OFF DISCOUNT! YAY! American Brand! light hearted co workers who will sing, dance, and have fun.

ConsHUGE turnover. Very cliquey through management. DMs and SMs would all party together and find ways to make the people who they didnt like lives miserable enough so they would just quit instead of having to fire them!! You HAVE TO work for a high volume store or you will make no money!!! they have some managers who make just as much as sales associates if not a dollar more.

Advice to Senior Managementhire better and more professional management.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

working at True Religion

Sales Associate (Current Employee)
Orlando, FL (US)

I have been working at True Religion Apparel part-time for less than a year

ProsWork Flexibility: Working at TRBJ offers you the flexibility to go to school and work at the same time. You are consulted before the schedule is put up to know if it suits you.

ConsLimited work hours: There are so many employees for a small size store. This limits how many hours each employee can work per pay period as management tries to make sure everyone gets an opportunity to work.

Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease hours for top performers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
