Pros: paid accordingly, hours, co-workers, amazing management staff
Cons: difficult customers, theft, prone to attract employees that are no-shows
I am currently a part-time Sales Associate at True Religion Brand Jeans, and I love it! No day is the same. We are constantly attracting new customers curious about our brand name, and as to why our denim is among the best denim to have. If management recognizes you as an amazing sales person, then you will be compensated accordingly. I was brought on as the highest paid sales associate in store, and I still qualify for raises. Also, you get paid weekly, and you receive cash bonuses, $100, every time you make plan or the month. Hours are great, i receive the max, 32 hours, but I do have re-occurring weeks where I have 36+, but you have to be one of the best if your want to keep the 30 hours or more. Management is always there to answer any questions you have, and help you with anything you need, such as requesting time off and working around your schedule, as long as you are communicating with them. Most friendly management staff ever! Lies on the line of your friend whom you can say anything to, but have to remember, they're still your manager. There's nothing hard about working for the company, except when you are selling to picky customers, and when you have shoplifters in the store, but your team is there to assist when that happens. You will enjoy the relationships you create with both the customers and your co-workers. I've learned a great many selling techniques, have acquired a great deal of retail knowledge, jargon, and am already seen as a leader among my co-workers. As long as you are hard-working, and can adapt to a constantly changing environment, then you'll have nothing to worry about. I've only been with the company for less than a year, and it feels like I've been with them for ages with how much I've experienced with them. Long story short, an awesome company to work for.
