Pros

The management was flexible with my hours, working around my class schedules and when possible my school events.

Cons

Compensation as a sales professional in a Ralph Lauren retail store is below average. Also the management team micromanaged everything I did in this position.

    Pros

    There is a good employee discount system, flexible availability requests, location to other stores is good if you like to shop

    Cons

    Management is over-demanding of part time associates, management is unrealistic with said demands, management makes you feel guilty for time off even in times of family emergency

    Advice to Management

    Stop being communist leaders... This is a retail store. People that work here have lives outside of Polo. You need to understand that. Supervisors were told that they were not allowed to be friends with employees outside of work.

    Pros

    Benefit package was amazing and the experience is also good for future preparation in retail. There is opportunity to delve into all areas of a business.

    Cons

    The company maintains an iron grip on all upper management position and many of the people have had their jobs for years this prevents up and coming management to remain stagnant and not able to advance to future levels.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to recognize those overachieving individuals and remember that a tenured team is not always the best team to take the company to the next level.
