    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Windsor Fashions in June 2015.

    Interview

    Went in the store and asked for the manager. Filled out the application outside and returned it an hour later to the same manager. Got a call back about 10 minutes later. Interview two days later. Managers are really young. I had an interview with a 21 year old assistant manager and I was 19. Store manager was only 22. Only got interviewed by the assistant manager + had to do a mini interactive on the floor. Signed a form to do a background check after the interview and got hired 2 days after.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Windsor Fashions.

    Interview

    I applied in person and got called back on the same day later for an interview. I had two interviews; one with each co-manager. I was pretty nervous because I had never interviewed for a retail position before. However, both managers were friendly and easy-going. The interview questions were pretty straight-forward and nothing really caught me off guard, which was surprising since, like I said, this was my first retail interview. The managers explained the company a bit and I immediately found that the environment was desirable. But unfortunately i didn't got the job.

    Interview Questions

    • What would you do if you saw someone stealing? Like a customer putting a scarf in their bag.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Windsor Fashions (Ann Arbor, MI) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Found the application online, it was originally posted over a month before. I applied anyways, not thinking anything of it as it was late at night when I did so. The next day, I received a call from the store manager asking me to come in for an interview. They had three time slots set up for the day I went in there, I chose the earliest one. I did some research on the company and current trends, even though I've shopped there before. I arrived for the interview about fifteen minutes early. They were busy and told me to shop around while they waited for a few more applicants. Two other applicants arrived and we finally went into the back room for the group interview. The manager was very friendly and talkative - she asked about 5-7 questions and we went around answering them. No one-on-one questions as we were already running out of time until the next interview had to start. She told us she'd be off for the next two days, so I didn't expect a call until after. After the interview, she had us fill out job applications in the store. After the next two days, I sent a thank-you email for the interview. Twenty minutes later I received a call from the manager offering me the position as Sales Associate. I went in the same day to file paperwork. I do not know who else they have hired besides myself, although the store still has the hiring sign outside their location. They possibly had around 6 or 7 applicants for the one day I went to interview, and the next day they conducted another interview, which had possibly 2 or 3 more applicants.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you stay current with the trends?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation - they pay you slightly above minimum wage.

    Application

    I interviewed at Windsor Fashions (San Diego, CA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I applied in person and got called back a few weeks later for an interview. I had two interviews; one with each co-manager. I was pretty nervous because I had never interviewed for a retail position before. However, both managers were friendly and easy-going. The interview questions were pretty straight-forward and nothing really caught me off guard, which was surprising since, like I said, this was my first retail interview. The managers explained the company a bit and I immediately found that the environment was desirable. I hadn't heard from the store for a week so I was a bit discouraged, especially since I had another retail interview at another store a few days later and it was HORRIBLE. However, they called almost two weeks after the interviews and offered me the job.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you help a customer that couldn't decide between two different dresses for a wedding? What would you do if you saw a customer place a stolen item in her bag?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate anything, because they matched the pay I was getting at my old job. However, the manager seemed like she would bump it up if I asked. She told me what the starting pay was and asked if it was okay. So, I would suggest asking for more if you feel that pay is too low.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Windsor Fashions (San Diego, CA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Walked in to ask for an application, was told that if I filled it out that day and brought it back, they had interviews set up that I could be a part of. Brought it back within the hour and was told to come back at specified time later. There were 8 girls, they split us in half with assistant managers. The rest was pretty typical for a retail interview.
