    One group interview, super simple behavioral questions. They did not ask much about prior experience, they just want to make sure you fit their culture and "look". They made us go and pick out an outfit also, the key is to have many layers.

    It was my first retail job and I got through it no problem.

    Didn't negotiate because it was my first job and 8/hr seemed fine.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Polo Ralph Lauren (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Recruited by an independent company. Had a phone interview with hiring manager followed by a phone interview with 4 others on the same call. Very hard to hear, etc with the group call but overall a good experience. Flown in for in-person and interviewed by 8 people in 1 day. Not horrible, not too tough. HR was hard to negotiate with and HR person was not very easy to work with in general. Issues with relocation and vacation. Hiring director was amazing to work with.
