    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Polo Ralph Lauren.

    Interview Details

    A relatively informal phone interview with a member of the payroll/recruitment team. After this an interview where you may have a group interview or a lone interview. This is dependent on the amount of people Ralph Lauren is looking at hiring at that particular time.

      Why do you want to work for Ralph Lauren?
      What can you bring to the company?
      What can you tell me of the history of Ralph Lauren?

    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.

    • None, they were all top 10 most common behavioral questions.   Answer Question

    Didn't negotiate because it was my first job and 8/hr seemed fine.

    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.

    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Polo Ralph Lauren.

    Interview Details

    The interview and hiring process and Ralph Lauren is exciting, fun, interesting, and lighthearted. I was contacted by the recruiting staff with interview details and confirmation through email, the email was professional and detailed. The recruiters were extremely helpful in answering any questions I had before the interview, which helped me to be much more at ease. When I arrived, I was kindly greeted in the lobby by the recruiter I'd spoken to, which again, made me feel welcome and comfortable. I interviewed with two members of senior management, which was nice to see that they cared about the hiring process. It was informal, short, and sweet. I couldn't get a good gage on how they felt about me upon leaving, but I was happily surprised to have been hired shortly following the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • In my second interview with the senior manager, I was only asked four questions. "Why do you want to work in this department?" "Why do you want to work at Ralph Lauren?" "Why did you choose the major you chose?" "What do you hope to gain from this experience?"   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    As an intern, I did not feel it was appropriate to negotiate in any fashion.
