    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, NH (US)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Ralph Lauren (Manchester, NH (US)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Very informal conversational interview. Appreciated knowledge based in local areas and knowledge about the business. Appreciated high energy and highly motivated individuals. Very open to discuss growth opportunities and employee goals. Asked specifically about work background and how I thought it pertained to the position I interviewed for. The DM was great and gave me his contact information for further opportunity. Also showed me some programs used by the store for smooth operation. We're ultimately looking for someone to help them move to a bigger store and I wasn't qualified for that particular area.

    Assistant Manager of Operations Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ralph Lauren (Boston, MA (US)) in May 2008.

    Interview

    The emphasis of the interview was not on my skill set but more on who I am as an individual. They were very concerned with what sets me a part from other people and how I was going to add diversity to the staff. That being said, they were not looking for diversity in the traditional sense, they wanted to know what was "cool" about me, and what "cool" things I had done with my life.
