    I have been working at Polo Ralph Lauren full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    1 hour unpaid lunch break

    Cons

    19k after taxes, terrible managment, the hours were from 10-7, stressful, no room for growth, expected to purchase clothes from Ralph Lauren and wear at all times despite not being given an allowance or any type of assistance. Desperate for new employees and will hire the most unqualified people to work there. Management favors the top seller in the store and will treat everyone else poorly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire 16-18 year old teenagers because these are the only type of people who can afford to make such little being a sales associate.

    A robot factory

    I worked at Polo Ralph Lauren

    Pros

    They feed you good. Free coffee; and they trust you to pay for your own snakes. Vendors outside so you don't have to go out

    Cons

    Worst place ever; treated everybody like robots. Not human there especially during Christmas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so hard on the temporaries, they are human to. Don't be quick to fire temporaries and during Christmas season don't work everyone until they can't stay anymore.

    I worked at Polo Ralph Lauren full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I can't think of one good thing, well they give you earn time off but, you have to use that time to make up hour when they cut hours, so really you can't save them for vacation time away from this place. And you really need the time off sometimes because this Place DRAIN the life out of you.

    Cons

    Scheduling, the schedule should be made a month in advance but it's a daily schedule changing by the hour, no Work life balance. the daily post and changing of the schedule have you where you can't interview if you'll looking for another job or if you need to go to the doctor and you will after all the HARD mental work this place does on you, at Ralph Lauren you don't have a life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Post a schedule a month in advance like stated in handbook and not change in every day. stop making people feel like they have to paid vacation time back just to get hours that have been taken from them. And give people lawful breaks.
