    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Polo Ralph Lauren (Byron Center, MI) in July 2015.

    Interview

    New store opening, sat down with store manager, had a great interview (so I thought) he told me I would fit in great w/ other managment team , said he wanted to set up time for me to talk with DM, said I would hear from him or DM in next day or so, never did even after I followed up with one of the Other new ASM's and was told I would get a phone call thay day.. Not very professional for a company that prides themselfs on the brand and the people who represent them. Be up front and not give the run around. Don't make someone wait for something that's not coming.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Polo Ralph Lauren (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I was put in a group interview and generally asked why I wanted to be a part of their team, why I was a good asset, etc. Pretty basic stuff. It was a generally positive experience, team was nice, but I felt very forced to put on fake enthusiasm, and act as if I was incredibly excited about everything. It was really irritating.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a weekinterviewed at Polo Ralph Lauren (Geneva (Switzerland)).

    Interview

    "classic" process with rather standard questions; the interview took about one hour: 30 minutes with the HR director, then another 30 minutes with the Credit Director. I didn't get the job as my feeling was that they needed somebody with extensive knowledges and experience in accounting, however, overall, the persons who interviewed me were nice and made me feel confortable during the interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Polo Ralph Lauren (San Diego, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was recruited to work at the Polo Ralph Lauren Store at Fashion Valley Mall in San Diego, CA. I filled out an application online and selected my interview time. Because the store hasn't opened yet, my interview was at a nearby hotel. I met with the President of Talent Acquisition and the manager of the Polo store in Las Vegas. They were both very nice and friendly. They are definitely looking for mature and friendly individuals who can provide great customer service. After the interview, I was emailed a link to a questionnaire. The majority of the questions were about my view on stealing from the company and the use of marijuana at work.

    Interview Questions

    • What are 3 qualities/ skills of a good sales associate? What is your biggest weakness in retail? How would your current (or previous) employer describe you? Why do you want to join the Polo team? How would you describe the Ralph Lauren Style? And various questions about my resume.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Polo Ralph Lauren (Orlando, FL) in June 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process was basic. Brief interview upon turning in application, just dress to impress and speak professionally. If you pass then a group interview follows with basic questions, and then a final solo interview. The group interview is more difficult due to the fact that you must out perform others, however, once you get your solo interview you are almost guaranteed your job offer. Just always remember to be extra perky and excited.
