Pros

Fun working as a team to meet daily sales goals. Amazing to see the amount of customers that come in daily.

Cons

Sometimes, they worry too much about what type of shoes you wear because it isn't their brand, versus the quality of your work, especially if you are a new member. They don't care where you come from or if you are too poor to afford their clothes. They expect you to wear their expensive clothes. Where I worked at, most co-workers bought their clothes at a Ross or other stores of that sort. Your hard work isn't really acknowledge unless your the managers pet. Also, another big reason why I quit is the extremely short hours. I'm talking about two hours a day, 10-15 hours a week, yet the company brings in $50,000 plus a day!! When I worked there, I haven't ever heard an amount under $50,000.

Advice to Management

In my opinion, management lacks a sense of openness, due to the fact they are too hung up on the image they are trying to uphold. It is important that as a big corporation to have higher standards as far as image, but when it overshadows your quality of work and brings down the members, resulting in workers losing interest in their work because of the constant knit picking. It does become a problem, hence, the never ending hiring process. And if work attire is such a big deal, then provide workers with clothes like a set or two to get them started. And just because they hold the title management, doesn't mean they have the right to treat you like your nobody!

    Pros

    The experience, the people, the networking and the whole atmosphere that Polo Ralph Lauren gives.

    Cons

    Steadiness in shifts need to be fixed. On calls need to be completely destroyed, only b/c it defers life outside of Polo.

    Advice to Management

    If theres a way to get comments reviewed by the higher ups so the store can change for the better! I like working for Ralph but i'm not happy being an employee who over achieves and barely recieves compensation for it if any.

    Pros

    Good discount, and health benefits... it's a country club too... come in at 9 or later and leave by 5 pm... amazing.

    Cons

    No management or leadership in my division. Very sad. Terrible place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Stop paying attention to all your upper management benefits and start leading the teams. Moral is terrible
