Pros

The employee discount was ok.

Cons

I was promised 20 hours a week when I was hired. The only time I got more than 12 hours was Black Friday week. Normal schedule was one four hour shift and 3 on-calls that were never used. So you are basically working a part-time "job" for four hours a week. Instead of giving more hours to current empolyees, management was constantly hiring new people - I suppose to give them a couple of hours a week, too. If you like clothes and like a discount I suppose this is ok. If you are trying to pay bills, Polo makes this absolutely impossible. Barely made enough money to pay for the gas to get to work. If you value your sanity, if you want to make some money, DO NOT WORK FOR POLO. Just warning you. Go somewhere else where you will get hours and some respect.

Advice to Management

Retain employees and give them hours rather than constantly hiring new people so there are fewer hours for everyone.

    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 Management

    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.
