Retail Store Manager:
Pros: I love the fact my retail manager is passionate about the brand and the people who work in it. She's the person who I think of when I hear Tommy Hilfiger
Cons: The culture has changed since PVH have taken over. What the culture of Tommy was when I started to what it is today don't feel like its the same business. What used to be a business that looked after its people, today it's a business that looks for people who look the part not those that are competent in doing the job. Knowing the job and how to do it were important........today it's about who you know. Stay clear its not the brand for you unless you're a tall blond with a great set of legs.
Retail Store Manager in Windsor:
Pros: I like everything except the hours
Cons: I am always working. If I’m not at work I’m taking calls from my store or answering my boss in a group or individual message. I feel like I can’t make plans because the payroll is so tight that you only schedule 1 or 2 people so if someone doesn’t show or calls in I’m either going in or spending my time on the phone getting it covered. There is a huge training gap that doesn’t allow proper training that leads yo management working more. When you hire someone there is no training hours so it is on the fly and your cutting hours of experienced employees to get training in. In return your working harder because it’s you and a trainee and the person you cut is now looking for another job because they need the hours as well
