Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take pride in who you hire or change your hiring process. Remember that we all have the same goals and are all one team. Don't take advantage of your employees, instead work with them to create a better environment. Stop abusing your power and you will have a better more productive work environment.

    Legendary brand. The people are legendary too, but for the wrong reasons.

    Pros

    Polo Ralph Lauren is a company that represents American fashion in the global retail industry. It has been an icon for several decades and because of its success, looks terrific on your resume.

    Cons

    The quality of people has drastically diminished since the company has gone public. In addition, the corporate values and goals have also shifted, some for the worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Innovation and progress are words that shouldn't be lightly used. There are definitely bad apples in the lower ranks and mid-level management of your company and its deterring creative minds and promoting the status quo.

    I worked at Polo Ralph Lauren part-time (less than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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!
