    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Polo Ralph Lauren.

    If you know someone that works there, they will hire you. It was that simple. They will ask you to come about two times and then tell you that you are hired. They like women who wear little to no makeup and do not permit colored nails or extreme hairstyles.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Polo Ralph Lauren.

    Interview Details

    One group interview, super simple behavioral questions. They did not ask much about prior experience, they just want to make sure you fit their culture and "look". They made us go and pick out an outfit also, the key is to have many layers.

    It was my first retail job and I got through it no problem.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Polo Ralph Lauren.

    Interview Details

    Recruited by an independent company. Had a phone interview with hiring manager followed by a phone interview with 4 others on the same call. Very hard to hear, etc with the group call but overall a good experience. Flown in for in-person and interviewed by 8 people in 1 day. Not horrible, not too tough. HR was hard to negotiate with and HR person was not very easy to work with in general. Issues with relocation and vacation. Hiring director was amazing to work with.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Polo Ralph Lauren in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online to 3 job postings at the same Polo Store in VT. Called a week or 2 later for an interview, had about a 2 hour interview, basic questions nothing too crazy other than the one I mentioned below. Asked about background, proof I could sell something, asked to pick out an outfit (get as many add ons in as possible, belts, scarves, socks, etc.). Showed the entire store, top to bottom, met a couple employees and that was it. Got a call back the next day, offered the job.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Polo Ralph Lauren in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Filled out an application in store. Assistant Manager pulled me to the side for a quick interview, gave me a survey card to fill out. Said if I hear back from them that's good, if not it's bad. Got a call two days later for an interview with HR. Went in 30 minutes early and she forgot about me. I waited an hour & 30 minutes. One of the workers who I had met a few days earlier was the one who went to go get the lady to let her know I was waiting. I was upset bc I had to wait that long. So the interview was just okay. Said she'd call me back for a second interview later in the week. Idk if I'll go.
