    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ralph Lauren (Elizabeth, NJ) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The process was crazy and biased. The store was transitioning from Ralph Lauren to Polo Factory store and the current temp employees were interviewed to see if we qualified, yes, I said we were reinterviewed to see if we qualified to be a permanent employee. Our information and work history was already discussed and during the interview some people were asked about lateness, days off, call outs, their willingness to be there full time, EVERYTHING APPLICABLE TO THAT PERSON.

    My interview was rushed, before I could sit down I was disqualified because I didn't have experience despite the job requirements stating 4yr degree (current grad student) in lieu of experience. I was told "you're really applying for an associate position" because you need to be available and you're not. He didn't even know if I was going to school online! I got the impression that they wanted to keep me where I was, stock associate, because how dare I try to move from stock to management without climbing the ladder and kissing butt. The interviewer was not interested in who I am and what I could offer or even what ideas I had for the store considering I've been there since they opened.

    The interview was extremely unprofessional, biased and impersonal. I was brought on as a temporary employee then fired for MINOR reasons stemming 3months back.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ralph Lauren (Lake Buena Vista, FL) in April 2012.

    Interview

    You would submit an application with the General Store Manager/Center Director or higher (Area Manager or District Manager). Following the initial conversation; you would have a formal sit down interview with one, both, or all (possibly together, possibly individually). You are required to complete a survey which will either "recommend" or "not recommend" for the job. Following the survey, you may have an additional interview with one or more of the above mentioned people -- or depending on the store location and sales volume it does -- you may interview with the Regional Director or above.

    Interview Questions

    • Be prepared to speak to your professional developmental opportunities. What are you currently working on and how do you plan on developing that skill in the next 30-60-90 days? What are your two greatest strengths and weaknesses?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They have very little (if any) negotiation room. Their store level payroll structure is very disciplined and strategic. They have 4 stores in the Orlando Market and are capable of promoting internally (due to excellent Talent and Developmental training) to keep payroll down.
