The process took 2 days - interviewed at Polo Ralph Lauren in May 2011.

Interview Details – Turned in my application and got a call about a week later inviting me to a group interview. The group interview was really casual, the manager actually didn't ask us any questions, she just told us about the job and company policy. She told all of us to take an online survey and would call us for second interviews. I took my survey immediately when I got home and got a call a few hours later asking me for a second interview the next day. The manager asked me some basic questions about my previous jobs and told me more about the expectations of the position, she asked me what I was looking for salary-wise and hired me on the spot.

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Polo Ralph Lauren in January 2010.

Interview Details – Go into the store to ask for an application. After working for the company, I learned that online applications sort of get lost is cyber land. I received a phone call for an initial interview. I met with a department manager first. Then I got another call back for a second interview with the general manager and the department manager. A few days later, I was hired.

Interview Question – How would you sell high end merchandise?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Polo Ralph Lauren does not negotiate. You will receive $12 an hour plus 3% commission. If you want more money, sell more! Some stores are on a 8% commission versus an $8 an hour rate. It is a draw system.
