I liked the layed back environment, but would expect much better compensation from such a large company

I have been working at Polo Ralph Lauren

Pros

-Discount
-Benefits (only if full time)
-Environment
-Large management team
-HR manager working on-site full time
-Laid back daily tasks
-Did I mention the discount??

Cons

-Very poor salary compensation, I'm not sure if it was the region that I was working in, but I believe minimum wage as a base pay is quite rediculous for a large and successful company as Polo. I don't believe it's fair at all.
-Little to no hours, there were weeks when I worked only 4 hours

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Just because you guys receive more payroll hours to distribute that fluxuate weekly, does not require you to hire a bulk-load of new associates. Then two weeks later when your low on hours, all the PT employees suffer and are getting little to no hours. Makes no sense. If you guys receive more hours, give them to all of the present employees! What are you doing??

    Pros

    Great at giving time off and having a work/personal life balance. Summer Fridays are a nice perk.

    Cons

    If your well connected than you are fine but if you are a hard worker then you will most likely be over looked. Don't take a job under your current level. Thinking you will get promoted is very unlikely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to work in a place that was not politics as usual. PRL is very political. Most poeple just want to come to work and do a good job.
