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

    Pros

    Great discounts, great product. Long term friendships are created.

    Cons

    High turnover, low hourly wages for part time stylist. Minimal incentives. Upper management expects unrealistic results. Payroll is very minimal. Salaried employees really are over worked. Prom season is a nightmare!

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time in stores to really see what it's like. Being behind a computer all day and coming in once or twice a month is not the same as spending time on the sales floor and making an effort to really train and develop employees.

    I have been working at Windsor Fashions part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    40% discount on top of whatever sale they have. (Could get 90%)
    Employees are fun to work with
    Clothes and dresses are trendy

    Cons

    Management
    Associates get blamed for shrink, not enough sales and little things that they have no control over. If you “Red dot” which means you didn’t meet your sales goal for the month, you are just 2 more red dots away from being written up.

    Advice to Management

    Your associates work too hard for what they deserve. Having more responsibility should come with a price and unfortunately, Windsor doesn’t do that

    Pros

    Great employee discounts
    Gives you days requested off

    Cons

    Prom season is the worst
    No commission

    Advice to Management

    Try to accommodate work schedules to where there is a fair rotation of weekends. Seems like the same people always work the weekends.
    Keep up with sales as well, not just hand all the work to sales associates.
    Do not take credit for all transactions.

    Pros

    40% discount or 50% during Extravaganza

    Cons

    Store managers get blamed for everything while the rest of the team gets away with everything! No structure! The team was terrible. Salary was dumb because even if you worked overtime you wouldn’t get paid. Moved product and changed mannequins every day.

    Advice to Management

    Choose your stylist, co managers and assistants wisely. Be more personable and understand that things do happen outside of Windsor! Also, you should see your DM’s more than once after the interview . Talking on the phone can only help but so much.

    "Not worth it"

    Pros

    40% discount was nice, occasional 50% during Extrava. It’s fun when a customer appreciates your help. The work can be really fun and making the customer happy is rewarding. The clothes are really cute, it’s fun dressing up for work.

    Cons

    Bad management, Management is rude and talks bad about associates to the other managers, barely ever heard anything positive about anyone. Sales associates do a lot with very little praise. Management delegates all the work onto their associates while they stand around and socialize. It’s okay for management to socialize but associates socialize for one minute during downtime when the store is nearly empty and everyone has been helped and they get in trouble. Nobody wants to be there and it shows.

    Advice to Management

    Be nice, you’re there to create a good work environment for your employees, not destroy it

    Pros

    40% discount
    Cool associates
    There’s not much going on for them other than that. It was mostly a waist of time.

    Cons

    Management needs to act like management
    Rude attitude from management
    Conflict/drama
    Managers socializing when others are doing work
    Too much work for too little pay
    No resources
    Low incentive
    Tons of blame for shrink on the employees

    Advice to Management

    Your attitude affects the work ethic of other employees. Don’t be rude because it will bring the mood down for everyone.

    Pros

    It's a happy, uplifting environment. Employees get a generous discount.

    Cons

    It can get a bit hectic during peak times such as prom season. Go back racks by the fitting rooms pile up and you can't go home until all of the items are back on their designated racks. There are some very late nights for closing.
