    I have been working at U.S. Polo Assn part-time

    Pros

    Easy to get along with staff, managers are understanding and flexible with schedules. If you're into fashion it's interesting to see how all the clothes are created around the sport of polo and you'll learn a lot about consumer behavior and sales. There's a generous employee discount. We have small things to look forward to such as potlucks for busy days of the year, secret santa, and brownies sent from corporate around the holidays. They also provide some type of health insurance for the part time workers if they want it. Uniform is provided for you, every 6 months you get 3 new shirts.

    Cons

    We really try to be clear that we're not Ralph Lauren Polo and even have it printed in the price tag but once in a blue moon we'll get that one customer that gets angry and yells at us even though it's not our fault they get the two confused. We have to ask for emails and we'll be called out if we have low captures but again its not our fault people don't want to sign up for that. Sometimes there's pettiness and drama between staff. No raises for people that have been working there for several years so a high turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Quality workers stick around only if you provide them with opportunities to expand or at least provide incentives for them to work hard.

    I have been working at U.S. Polo Assn part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It is decent pay for a first job, better than fast food.
    Good to build retail experience.
    Decent hours.
    Environment is not overly stressful.
    Three free shirts every six months.

    Cons

    It's embarrassing being known as the "fake polo."
    Not popular with Americans, store would not survive without tourists that don't know the difference between this and Ralph Lauren.
    You cannot get by without Spanish, almost no one that walks in speaks English.
    Late nights, especially on weekends.
    Gets boring and virtually no youth in staff or management.
    No opportunity for growth, it is a dead end job.

    Advice to Management

    Quit being condescending and start being a little nicer to your employees.
