    I worked at Ralph Lauren part-time

    Pros

    Working at the upscale RL like in the Galleria Houston you get paid a commission and there is allot of high $ sales so lots of money to be paid. The outlet is the opposite, completely different. It's hourly and at least you can pick your hours

    Cons

    commission sales is VERY competitive and employees working there for a long time don't want you waiting on 'their' customers. I even had to give my time and sales to the so called claimed customers of other employees. Outlet pays low and folding and removing from dressing room is all you do it seems except stand at cash register and ring endless sales

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees, be fair and make it fun

    I have been working at Ralph Lauren full-time

    Pros

    Respected brand.
    Great way to learn fashion from the ground up.
    Diverse array of people.
    Very passionate company - people really love the brand!

    Cons

    Company culture can be negative and borderline toxic.
    No room for growth.
    No room for new ideas - the company repeats the same things year round (both business & design), that have not been working for years.
    Company lost 60% of it's value in the last 2 years. Needs help.

    Advice to Management

    Everything comes from the top down - corporate and upper management needs to get their act together.

    Beautiful store, high quality merchandise, great design, positive team environment, wonderful to dress in the brand and promote the lifestyle brand across merchandise categories

    Cons

    High price points versus compensation, creates a challenge to dress in the brand and keep a fashion forward current season look

    Advice to Management

    Discount the merchandise more to staff and increase pay for selling a high end fashion line
