Fantastic Corporate Culture and Great, Supportive Management

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Polo Ralph Lauren full-time for more than a year

ProsRL is the best place I've ever worked. Not only are the benefits amazing and the employee perks enviable, the management really cares about their employees. The organization celebrates diversity, charity, and new ideas. I couldn't recommend it more.

ConsIt is very competitive because it's a great place to work and because of the "glamour" of the brand. I had to get in through a third party contracting agency, because the seven or so applications I submitted led to nothing, so it can take a lot of work to get your foot in the door. Worth it, though. Also, during peak season (Christmas), you WILL work seven days a week. But it shouldn't be a surprise to anyone who knows retail, and management is right there in the trenches with you, so nobody is asking you to do anything they aren't doing themselves.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

If you want to work retail, Ralph Lauren is the best to work for!

I worked at Polo Ralph Lauren

ProsMany opportunities to grow, good benefits if you are full time. The company really takes care of their team and cares about you.

ConsOnly con I can think of is, its harder to get promoted because everyone is fighting for any open position that becomes available. You might have to move if you want a promotion.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to feedback from your team. Esp if they are expressing there is horrible management!

Shipping & Receiving

Shipping Manager (Current Employee)
Aspen, CO

I have been working at Polo Ralph Lauren full-time for more than a year

ProsEndless opportunity for personal and professional growth. Constant challenge. Positive energetic work atmosphere. Clearly defined goals for promotions. The business is structured for individuals to grow. The focus is on building and growing individuals to become the better versions of themselves.

ConsThe con of this business is that it will challenge you, you will be exposed. Failure is a part of success and success is a measure of the individual and their correct actions/behavior. The con is that politics plays no part here. This is a merit based business that attracts high performers willing to accept responsibility for their growth/success or lack thereof. Simple but not easy. Hard work is a must!

Excellent, high energy environment that focuses on growth and development with their employees!

Assistant Manager (Current Employee)
Orlando, FL

I have been working at Polo Ralph Lauren full-time for more than 8 years

ProsRalph Lauren strives to create a world class customer service environment through intense talent and development training of the staff. They invest time into getting the "Right people in the right places" and provide multiple opportunities for advancement within the company. They have a very well tenured staff (part time through corporate) who genuinely enjoy their job and the people they work for/with.

ConsNo set schedule (retail environment). Due to the amount of traffic in the building it is a strenuous job that requires a high level of energy and motivation.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue elevating and improving employee morale as well as customer relations!
