I worked at Polo Ralph Lauren full-time for more than a year

Pros

Discount is 50% but never used because the clothing is not that great. 50% at Club Monaco, much better. Benefits were good, but then they switched to the WORST health care plan in existence. Job security.

Cons

Very unorganized, no formal training. I was trained by someone who had only started a few months before me. High expectations. They expect you to know everything even if you havent been taught something. No one really knows what they are doing there. You ask someone a question and they look back at you with a blank stare. GIRLS ARE VERY CLIQUEY, very high school. VERY LOW PAY for associates. VP and Sr Directors will barely look at you in the eyes and forget your name constantly even though youve worked there for years. *BEWARE OF CHILDRENSWEAR* very high turnover rate. Few people last more than a few months, and the ones that stay work until 2 am. NO ROOM for growth unless you are willing to give up your life. Oh and bed bugs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

*VALUE YOUR EMPLOYEES* The reason people leave so quickly is because management does not care about you.

    I worked at Polo Ralph Lauren full-time

    Pros

    The discount is nice. The hours are consistent, the benefits are okay.

    Cons

    Very little internal movement up the "ladder". Job positions are often made up to accommodate the higher ups favorite workers. Very sexist working environment, pretty boys are often favorited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect the little people, it will pay off BIG TIME.
