    Pros

    I enjoyed working here. I liked my co workers and the discount. Scheduling was very flexible which was nice with my full time job. Some weeks I had no availability and some weeks I had a lot and it worked out.

    Cons

    The signs regarding price were confusing to customers. Hard to search for prices when tags fall off. Low quality clothes. Pay on the low side.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the quality on some of the merchandise. Raise pay a bt.

    Pros

    there were lots of chances to learn new things and change positions. You were always busy,Had very good managers who are willing to teach and are willing to jump in and help when needed. The managers are willing to work around your school schedule and was very easy to get hours if willing to work hard. employee discount is good too.

    Cons

    hard to get promoted unless willing to switch to other stores, no benefits for part timers

    Advice to Management

    offer benefits for part timers and give more chances for promotions

    Pros

    The employee discount. It can be a fun place to work when you are not short handed. Everyone seems to get along really well.

    Cons

    Hours are constantly being cut; employees are leaving because it is so stressful to work there. There is no reason we should be at the store until midnight on the weekends. The schedule only comes out 4-5 days in advance making it very stressful to have to work around another job.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to what is going on at each of your stores. Hours keep getting cut and we are constantly short staffed because our payroll is "limited". There is no way that we are not reaching our goals when we are constantly busy and a lot of times the #1 store in the company. The schedules need to be done at least 2 weeks in advance and not 4-5 days.

  10. It is a wonderful job. The managers are very kind and are great with working around my available schedule.

    Pros

    Able to move up in positions, Good raise opportunities

    Cons

    Some managers seem to create very confusing schedules, hours are cut dramatically after the holidays. I went from 35+ to 5 hours.

    Advice to Management

    Try to care about employees more, to give more than a 2 or 3 hour shift. If someone is obviously doing an outstanding job and going above & beyond, they should receive some sort of praise for that.

    Pros

    The managers are nice and the schedule can be flexible you will have lots of opportunities to make extra money (extra hours, credit card sign ups) and if you do your job well then you have the chance to move up in this company

    Cons

    There are always issues with scheduling, registers, customers. The worst part is that gordmans is always trying new things and they roll them out before testing everything and the employees have to suffer when things don't work and the customers are mad.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your lower lower level employees more instead of talking to just the managers because they will tell you everything is perfect when it is not.
