    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Polo Ralph Lauren in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied to Ralph Lauren's corporate development program and wanted to go into merchandising or buying. After a couple of weeks, I was contacted by the head of campus recruiting for RL and had a short conversation with her where I was asked to tell her about myself, what I am looking for in an internship with Ralph Lauren and what departments I would ideally like to work with. After this, she set me up for an interview with someone from the merchandising department. This interview was more like an informal conversation. My interviewer was very friendly, and I wasn't asked any unanticipated questions. The team ended up choosing another candidate but I was lucky enough to be set up for a second interview with another department which was a bit more formal than my previous interview. I was contacted about a week later and offered an internship position for this summer which I accepted.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Polo Ralph Lauren in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was pretty fast and took about a week! When I first got there I didn't have to wait they got me in and out so it was very brief. Judging from the work environment I saw, it is very corporate but you can tell the employees are pretty happy working there!

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Polo Ralph Lauren in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was called in for an interview. The person on the phone was very curt and sounded as though they did not want to be on the phone. The interview consisted of two other applicants. The interviewer was rude to one of the applicants by belittling her questions, cutting her responses short and not looking at her when she spoke. Not sure what the issue was but it was not the vibe I would want to put up with at work. No thanks.

    Interview Questions
    • They questions were very typical. The one that involved the most thought was what whould be the most difficult thing about working there.   View Answer

    I went in and applied at the store and set up an interview for the following day. Following the interview I was given a link to an assessment test and upon completion I was phoned and offered the position and went in for orientation the next week. After the orientation we were told to call back the following day to receive our employee id and to find out when we were on the schedule. However, when I called back it seemed as if they were not ready for my call. One of the managers told me they would call me back in a few hours, which they didn't. I tried calling again to no avail and sent an email to the store to which I was replied to within a dat informing me of my schedule and my employee number.
