    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

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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.
