    Credit Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Geneva (Switzerland)

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Polo Ralph Lauren (Waipahu, HI).

    Interview

    Applied in person and was given an interview date that same day. I came to the group interview (don't dress in a suit. be sophisticated preppy.) of about 8 people. Most were all younger people about ages 18-22. Interview took about an hour. Questions were not unexpected. First 30 minutes was with hiring manager then last 30 minutes was with GM and they close the interview with questions from interviewees. I then got a call back about a week after interview that I got the job and the pay rate.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They tell you the pay rate given and asks if it is okay. I did not negotiate since it was my first job and the pay rate offered was $2 above the state minimum.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Polo Ralph Lauren in June 2015.

    Interview

    Went in store and got an application, turned it in the next day. They called me about 2-3 days later to schedule an interview. Went to the interview, I was very nervous because I'd never interviewed before, she didn't ask me any questions about myself or any typical "interview questions". Basically just went in there, talked for 5 minutes about the position, then i was given a personality survey to take. I went home and took it immediately and then got called about an hour later telling me I got the job. It was a great hiring experience.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Polo Ralph Lauren (High Point, NC).

    Interview

    The interview process I originally went through was bogus. The HR personnel had no personality and the team managers from the contact center floor conducted the "group" interview. The first time I interviewed I thought I had aced all of my questions, especially compared to the group that I was interviewed in had terrible customer service responses. I did not make it any further and upon calling HR to see what I could have improved on for future reference, I was told, "You can apply again in 6 months." End of story. The second time I went in, I thought I did worse, but had different managers and different HR people completing the interview process. I made it through, thinking this would be a great company to work for. Not so much!
