Lead Cashier and Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 29 September 2017
There was always a changing of employees and management team members at my location. The people that I worked with was awesome and they felt like a family. However, with over 20 managers and supervisors coming and going during my time got the employees to lose respect towards them. Sometimes it felt like sales associates were managing the store better. Moreover, once a manager gets to know you, they would take advantage of your work and get you to do long hours and overnights. Also, in my location, people who worked for 1 year/2+ years were getting paid less then the newcomers. Would go back for my co workers but hate the management team.
they have a great team
horrible management team, long hours, the pay doesnt reflect someone work, overnight shifts, you have to learn a little in each section of the store (cashier, floor first, floor set, fitting room..etc

Great if you’re new to retail just the getting there is a hassle gets very busy but then very dead hours get cut you never have a set availability managers always get on your case over the smallest things
A lot of flaws with management and some employees and a lot of rude customers
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON – 25 September 2017
The manager of the store was inconsistent. Would never show up in time for work nor put the effort, yet when she did it was to berate us for missing target and sales. The management team is very pushy towards signing up people for emails and cashiers were put down if they couldn't reach "sign up" targets. The employee turnover, due to bad management and overall bad environment, was so high they hire new batches of employees every two weeks. If you need a quick job while you look around, apply here. Just be aware that will be treated as a tool and not as a person
Sales Associate/Cash Lead (Former Employee) – Halton Hills, ON – 8 June 2017
I was able to learn a lot here regarding customer service and handling cash. Even as a regular employee I was able to do Supervisor duties that helped me grow as an individual. Management was not good, not everyone was treated equally and communication between management and employees was not great. The most enjoyable part of the job was having employees as friends.
Sales Associate and Cashier (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 24 May 2017
A typical day at Polo would be packed with hundreds of customers. Learned to communicate with different types of people and taught how to be a leader. I was the youngest sales associate there at that time. Very lenient with all customers. Management always wanted us to push for sales. Everyday we would exceed last years goal and the current daily goal given. Hardest part would be how hectic it was. Felt like long days. Most enjoyable was my team and at the end of the day we all were one huge family.
management was very nice, given discounts of certain items

A fast paced and energetic job placement where you will learn how to deal with many tasks at once. You will learn to cope with various job titles as becoming an employee or sales associate does not mean that you will only be required to do a specific job.
Good place to work for people that are just starting their career
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – 26 Richardson St. Toronto – 29 May 2015
It was a good company to work for and people that I have worked with treated each other just like family. Management treated people with respect and were very supportive of people and their career growth.
I have sold Ralph Lauren men's dress clothes for the Bay. A typical day at work was preparing the new dress clothes for presentation to the customers, selling the men's dress clothes to customers, worked and assisted training new employees, worked days with co-workers. I enjoyed my work and took pride in presenting the clothes. The most enjoyable part of the job was closing the sales with customers and displaying dress clothes for customers.
