    Pros

    There was an employee discount on top of the regular store prices, which are pretty good.

    Cons

    There weren't many chances for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the cashiers completely understand the check-out system before letting them fly solo.

    Pros

    Lot of opportunities to grow with a growing and trending company!

    Cons

    Corporate disconnect with the stores and not the same small company feeling as they grow bigger

    Advice to Management

    Treat your store associates as the bread and butter of your company, who are making the business run on a daily basis.

    Pros

    New corporate office, work-life balance is acceptable.

    Cons

    Identity crisis as a company, not much organization amongst the divisions. There seems to always be some problem going on in the office.

    Pros

    Gordmans is a fun place to work, I enjoy my managers and co workers quite a bit! I like my discount, obviously. My managers totally get that I'm a student and that I have myself involved in a lot of things - so they're okay with being flexible with my schedule, and I'm really appreciative of that.

    Cons

    Sometimes my managers disregard my availability. The store is also always constantly a mess and sometimes it's very embarrassing to work in such an environment - but it's somehow impossible to keep it clean? Also, "payroll" is always an issue, even during peak times of the year.

    Some pros of working at gordmans-
    -I've meet some the best people here. Very nice and caring.
    -flexible hours

    Cons

    Some con's of working at Gordmans would be
    -managers need to communicate with other managers and employees better. Sometimes there can be a lot of confusion.
    -some of the employees are not trained correctly so they cannot prefer their job right.
    -Some "lod" or managers have "favorites". They will be treated better then others.
    -a lot of drama and rumors started between employee's

    My advice to management would be to have better communication and be more involved with the employees.
