    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Polo Ralph Lauren.

    Interview

    Round one was through Skype with a HR representative. It felt more like a conversation than an interview. We went over my background and experiences and she asked few behavioral questions. It is also important to know the company well and speak about their brand. Round two was by phone with two managers.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Polo Ralph Lauren.

    Interview

    Very positive interview process. The interviewer was very friendly and professional. She made me feel very comfortable and the interview felt more like a conversation than an interview. It was fairly short and it seemed like there was a strict outline for the interview process.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Polo Ralph Lauren.

    Interview

    First, the have you take a online test, it's pretty simple. Second, you have a set down with a hiring manager and they ask about your background, and your previous experience. It's incredibly simple process, the hiring manager at my store, was very nice and friendly, tried to make me feel at ease. Overall a very positive and simple process.

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Polo Ralph Lauren.

    Interview

    Interview process took over a month! After a telephone interview with the Regional Manager, I was told I will be contacted by the end of the next week....I waited for three weeks and am still waiting. Communication was horrible, I really had to do all of the contacting on my own. I learned from an inside source that the position was no longer available but never heard this from the hiring manager who kept me waiting. Mostly personality questions, some operational.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Polo Ralph Lauren.

    Interview

    At my store - there is a simple, basic paper application. The same kind of application that you see in any sort of retail job. No resume was necessary. I received a call the next day by the hiring manager that wanted to see me. He asked me about my retail experience (which was very minimal at the time) as well as what would qualify me to be an excellent sales associate. The next interview was with the store manager who asked me more of the personality, work ethic questions. At the end of the interview, the store manager gave me a piece of paper with a website and a survey code. It was one of the surveys that dealt with lying and personality.

    • If you see a fellow associate stealing - what would you do? (I had very little retail experience before. But many retail companies tend to always ask this question. Be confident in your answers.)   Answer Question

    Interview

    Two interviews, both brief and had the usual interview questions. "What are your strengths?, What are your weaknesses"? The questions are straight forward with the exception of the below. The setting is comfortable and the expectations are clear.
