    I worked at Windsor Fashions full-time

    Pros

    Discount was the only pro this company has going for it

    Cons

    DM be littled store management teams and NEVER showed appreciation. Also would change store schedules to short staff the business and didn't bother to observe the strength and weaknesses of each stores staff which effected loss prevention majorly and then would get rude and frustrated with the management team. DM and upper level management was not receptive to concerns or feedback. Always their way or the high way.
    Under paid for expectations
    A lot of wasted time in store use that should be monitored more accurately at the warehouse

    Don't bother wasting your time with this company, rude, don't know how to run a business, and you'll leave work everyday feeling not good enough when you give it your all.

    I worked at Windsor Fashions part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The clothes are really cute and the discount is pretty great, considering other stores I worked at gave a significantly smaller discount. The atmosphere is also nice. The coworkers are usually young and chill, so it's definitely fun at times.

    Cons

    Like with any retail job, it can get pretty hectic at times and when there's not enough workers, everything falls on your shoulders. Sometimes there were only two or three people at a time for shifts, and that's just not enough people, especially if you want to keep the customer happy and your employees sane.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes managers will literally do nothing, while the sales associates are doing all of the work. It's not fun to be micromanaged when we're doing our best. But overall, I like the style of the store and more promotional ideas for customers and employees alike would be nice.

    Pros

    I love that Windsor is up to date with all of the current trends. I enjoyed working with most of the girls, my store manager way always positive and pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    I was hired as a part time position and was lucky to even get one shift per week. They never put me on the schedule so when I did work I did not feel confident. Depending on who I would work with, if I asked a question, I would get a frustrated response. Not my fault I don't know my way around the store when I don't get the opportunity to even work.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire people unless you can guarantee them at least 10 hours per week. Wasting everyone's time.
